Meet Our August Training Class Graduates!

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.

Abel Garcia – Fort Worth, Texas

Meet the newest franchise owners of Gotcha Covered!

Originally from Mexico, Abel emigrated to the US to become a US citizen as a young man, and earned his college degree here. Abel got into real estate for a time, which led him to property management where he has spent the majority of his career.

At a recent family vacation, Abel heard from his Aunt that Abel’s cousin, Cesar Garcia, was a new Gotcha Covered owner and that he was really enjoying his new career.

A short phone call with Cesar convinced Abel that he should leave his high stress job and join the Gotcha Covered family.

Michelle Mastalier – Regina, Saskatchewan

Meet the newest franchise owners of Gotcha Covered!

Michelle joins Gotcha Covered with previous franchise ownership experience, having owned and operated a child’s art studio for several years until it closed due to Covid last year.

She and her fiancé, Corey Pike, have always planned on running a business together, and had been looking at businesses that they could run together.

During their exploration process, Corey found a job in his field of accountancy, and he will be helping Michelle behind the scenes until he can transition full-time to Gotcha Covered.

John Kinlock – Fort Walton Beach, Florida

Meet the newest franchise owners of Gotcha Covered!

John joined the US Navy as a young man to see the world, and subsequently got an engineering degree and spent the better part of 25 years in the network engineering field.

John worked for AT&T, building their networks and increasing his job responsibilities until getting laid off due to Covid.

Not wanting to get back into the corporate world, John started exploring restaurant franchises before deciding that what he really wanted was a fun business that he could enjoy while creating income and lifestyle flexibility for himself.

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