Meet Our Newest Owners!

Please help me welcome the newest members of the Gotcha Covered family! As you will note from these photos, this was another virtual training class.

Kelly and Nathan Eldridge – Allen, Texas

Meet Kelly Eldridge, owner of Gotcha Covered of Allen

Kelly and Nathan are joining Gotcha Covered after recently moving back to the Dallas area to be closer to family. Kelly’s background includes working for 7+ years for a plumbing manufacturer, and actually explored purchasing a Gotcha Covered franchise before finding a job working for a jewelry company in a role that she loved. That job ended with the pandemic, and they decided to give Gotcha Covered another look. Nathan has recently started a new job in the area that will allow him to help Kelly behind the scenes while she runs the business full time.

Sean and Lynn Lynch – Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Meet Sean and Lynn Lynch, owners of Gotcha Covered of Pittsburgh East

Long-time business owners, Sean and Lynn have spent most of their prior careers in the pharmaceutical industry, most recently operating a consulting and staffing business working primarily with independent pharmacies. After burning out on ‘adult day care’ as they call it, they started looking at franchising as a possible next step. After looking at more than a dozen franchise systems, Sean and Lynn decided that Gotcha Covered would be the right way to leverage their respective strengths, with Lynn as the primary face of the business and Sean primarily doing the installation.

Jay and Debby McAlister – Palm Coast, Florida

Meet Jay and Debby McAlister, owners of Gotcha Covered of Flagler County.

Jay and Debbie join Gotcha Covered from the northeastern coast of Florida after having considered business ownership for many years. Debbie has worked for Lowe’s primarily selling durable goods for 20+ years, while Jay has been a critical care nurse for more than 25 years. Working as a nurse through the pandemic was the final push for Jay and Debbie to finally start their own business. They will both work the business together on a full-time basis, with Debbie up front and Jay supporting Debbie as needed and leading the installation side of the business.

Kristin Re – Newport, Rhode Island

Meet Kristin Re, owner of Gotcha Covered of Newport.

Kristin is originally a native of the Pacific Northwest, and moved across the country to Rhode Island about a year and a half ago. Kristin was introduced to Gotcha Covered about 10 years ago when her sister purchased window treatments from a former Gotcha Covered franchise owner. She fell in love with the business model back then, but had been working for a local farmer’s market until finally deciding that it was time to revisit her thoughts of opening up a Gotcha Covered franchise. Kristin will be running the business full-time by herself.

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

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.
