Garage door access starts strong in 2021 with expansion of the Midwest

Access Garage Doors, an industry leader with more than 15 years of experience repairing and installing garage doors for residential and commercial buildings, is excited to continue its national expansion with a new location in the Midwest. The newest franchise in South St. Paul, Minnesota is owned by veteran entrepreneur Mike Rustad.

Access Garage Doors specializes in providing homeowners with a full range of existing equipment repair services as well as a wide range of high quality new garage doors and openers. Access Garage Doors is an Authorized Master Clopay Dealer and Authorized Service Provider for LiftMaster, Home Depot, Genie, Clopay and Amarr.

Access Garage Doors capitalizes on the strong momentum of a successful 2020. In a challenging economic climate, the brand expanded beyond its Chattanooga, Tennessee headquarters to an impressive seven new franchise locations across the country. The newest location in South St. Paul, Minnesota welcomes another Access family franchisee.

“As long as there are houses with garages, there will always be demand for garage door repairs and reinstallations,” said Jesse Cox, President and CEO of Access Garage Doors. “The home improvement industry is strong and offers our brand and our franchisees incredible opportunities. The experience Mike Rustad brings, combined with the affordable and recession-resistant business model of Access Garage Doors, creates an incredible team for the South St. Paul area. “

The scalable, low overhead franchise model gives entrepreneurs the ability to start their garage door business from a home office and expand their business as the business grows. A proven business model, industry-leading training and business support open the door to success for new franchisees.

“Commitment to great customer service is a core value for Access Garage Doors and that really appealed to me,” said Rustad. “Regardless of what business you’re in, what sets a company like Access apart from the competition is taking care of your customers and helping them fix a problem in their home or business. I look forward to taking the next step in my business career with this growing brand. ”
