For Lor-Lea Croteau, finding a business was a necessity after being downsized from her 33-year career as a microbiologist in Brampton, Ontario. For husband Phil, it just made sense to be in business together and determine their own success.

They chose Gotcha Covered because the numbers just made sense. The startup costs were low and even a fraction of a percentage of the business available up there was more than enough to provide a great lifestyle. Hear their story in the video below.

This business provides a great opportunity for couples to get into business together and use their skills to complement each other. About 27% of franchises are run by couples, and as Lor-Lea says, “You know if you’re going to succeed, you’re going to succeed together.”
