We had another fantastic group of new franchisees come through training this month, and we know they have a very bright future with the Gotcha Covered family!


Andre and Marcella Vasconcellos
Orlando, FL

Andre and Marcella have just emigrated from their native Brazil to start a Gotcha Covered franchise in the Orlando, Florida area. Andre had been an exchange student in California, and has spent his career primarily in the consulting world, specializing in Risk, IT, and Business Intelligence. Marcella’s background is in marketing/advertising, and more recently owned and operated a fashion design store. They will both be working the business full-time, with Andre mostly doing the marketing and support side of the business, with Marcella generally working directly with customers

Kara Pisani
Jupiter, FL

Originally from Connecticut, Kara and her family moved to Jupiter, Florida about 5 years ago to enjoy the warmer climate and get her kids adjusted to their new community before they hit their teens. Kara had been a teacher prior to raising her four children but transitioned back into the working world through her very own home staging business. In addition to her entrepreneurial spirit, design skills, and experience running her own business, Kara also has a real estate license and is quite well-connected in her community.

Brian and Krista Thatcher
Columbus, OH

The Thatchers join Gotcha Covered in Columbus, Ohio after exploring a dozen or so other franchise systems. Krista is a Trauma Nurse Practitioner who loves and will keep her job while supporting Brian behind the scenes, primarily with bookkeeping duties. Brian brings a highly successful sales background to Gotcha Covered, having spent about 15 years in promotional merchandise before moving into management at his former company. Most recently, Brian had been selling software for a venture capital firm just prior to joining Gotcha Covered.

About the Gotcha Covered Franchise

A Gotcha Covered franchise provides a lifestyle business with extraordinary profit potential through high margins and low operating expenses, all within a very cash-flow friendly model.

Utilizing our powerful and proprietary design software, our franchisees sell virtually everything for the interior of a window, both for the residential and commercial markets. Our extensive offering includes blinds, shades, shutters, window film, and fabric treatments such as draperies, curtains, swags, and cascades, covering hundreds of custom window treatments and accessory options.
