GET A GRIP of Las Vegas Resurfacing Company Opens


Mar 11, 2013

LAS VEGAS, NV, Michael A. Galarsa and Richard A. Young have joined the nationwide network of Get A Grip Franchising as owners of Get A Grip of Las Vegas. The business partners have already begun transforming the resurfacing industry in Las Vegas and surrounding areas by resurfacing and repairing cracked fiberglass bathtubs, scratched or stained porcelain tile and even Formica, laminate or cultured marble kitchen countertops at a fraction of the cost of replacing them.

Galarsa and Young spent time in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where Get A Grip is headquartered and started in 1999, learning about Get A Grip's exclusive products and techniques. Unlike other training programs, Get A Grip puts its franchisees directly into the field, training them on actual customer jobs resurfacing practically any surface in the home: countertops, showers, tubs and tile, and cabinets.

"Get A Grip products lead the resurfacing industry in affordability, quality, and versatility of colors and textures," says Young, who first heard of the franchise opportunity at a trade show. "I was impressed with everyone I spoke to at the company, their honesty and experience, and the company has an impressive track record with its franchisees."

Galarsa agrees. "Get A Grip fills a niche that's not adequately served. This is a great opportunity for us, and the turnkey operation and immediate support from Get A Grip are big plusses, too," he says.

Get A Grip's dedication to researching and creating new and better resurfacing products and techniques sets it apart from the rest. The company even holds a unique patent and several registered trademarks. It also backs up its claim that it has the best products and the best processes with a three-year guarantee on all its countertop work. Get A Grip has been listed in Entrepreneur 's Franchise 500 list of franchise companies in the United States and Canada since 2007

Get A Grip leads the resurfacing industry not only in its New Mexico headquarters, but also in the 16 other states where Get A Grip dealers and franchises are now outselling and outperforming all competitors. Get A Grip's proprietary, breakthrough and patented products, designed for laminate, porcelain, fiberglass and tile surfaces, cure in just 24 hours.
