Meet Our Newest Gotcha Covered Franchise Owners!

Join us in welcoming the newest members of the Gotcha Covered family!

Kendall Walters

Summerdale, AL

Kendall joins Gotcha Covered in the Mobile, Alabama area (Baldwin County) after leaving her previous job in the medical equipment industry. With sales and management experience (and an MBA), Kendall has always wanted her own business, and explored other franchise system before choosing Gotcha Covered. After a less-than-positive experience trying to find window treatments for some rental property she owns, Kendall recognized the opportunity for a customer-focused window treatment company in her area.

Jon and Sarah Schloesser

Appleton, WI

Both Jon and Sarah attended training, but Jon will be the primary driver of their new business. A US Air Force Veteran, Jon’s most recent background has involved extensive travel in the aviation industry. With three young children at home, Jon wanted to find an opportunity to have a lucrative career that did not require travel, and that gave him and Sarah flexibility to spend more time together as a family. Sarah is private practice owner and will retain her position while helping Jon behind the scenes.

Heather Bellardine 

Richmond, KY 

Heather’s life path has taken her through Virginia Beach, Virginia and Raleigh, North Carolina before she landed in the Richmond, Kentucky area, where she will be starting her new Gotcha Covered business. A former homemaker with two adult children, Heather is looking to help pay off student loans for her daughters and build equity for retirement for herself. Heather has an inherent interest in design and has just purchased a home to try out her decorating skills. Heather is joined in business by her father, who will remain a silent partner.

Dorian Landaruzi

Jacksonville, FL

Dorian is a US Army Veteran who just moved from his native California to Florida in part to be near his wife, Anna, who recently enlisted in the US Navy. Dorian has a strong entrepreneurial streak, and has flipped cars and sold furniture in addition to his career as a mortgage broker for a large national bank. Dorian and Anna are also very active in the community, and are involved in emergency response and search and rescue organizations. Anna plans to join Dorian in the business once her enlistment period expires in a few years.

Welcome to our new owners! We are so excited to have you join our team!
