He recruited and trained additional employees, growing the business and providing a full-service experience including design, engineering, permitting, and installation services.
Mr. Hazout established relationships with many leading manufactures, offering a selection of products that were able to meet the unique demands of any type of project. His company quickly became one of the leading full-service window and door suppliers in Florida.
In 2008, Mr. Hazout sold his first company, and in 2016 he sold his second company for several million dollars.
He then joined Transworld Business Advisors, a United Franchise Group Company, and became a certified business broker. As a business broker, he learned about the intricacies of the franchise world, and he saw a great potential to use his vast expeience in the window and door industry to build a powerful franchise opportunity.
