Brad and Paula Roberson, owners of Glass Doctor of Southwest Mississippi, received the Top Gun Award from Glass Doctor during The Dwyer Group(r) International Conference Sept. 29-Oct. 3 in San Antonio.

The award goes to franchise owners who achieve top sales and reach operation benchmarks, according to a company press release. The Top Gun recipients represent the top 10 percent of Glass Doctor franchise owners across North America.

“The idea of ‘Top Gun’ was established by the Navy in the 1960s as a way to give training and credit to elite fighter pilots,” said Mark Liston, president of Glass Doctor.

“Taking a page from the Naval Top Gun Program, each year we recognize our franchise leaders for their accomplishments and dedication to the trade. It takes dedication, hard work, expertise and commitment to reach the Top Gun goal and we are honored to have these winners on our team.”

The Top Gun designation was inspired by the 1980s movie of the same name. Don Dwyer, the late founder of Glass Doctor’s parent company, The Dwyer Group, initiated the concept. He felt the top franchise owners went the extra mile and did what it took to be exemplary.

“It is an honor to receive this award,” Brad Roberson said. “It proves that working hard and providing outstanding customer service can go a long way.”
