A Family Business Gives Their Community a Lift

We are excited to announce the newest owner of ProLift Garage Doors: Mike Daughtry. With a rich background in sales and advertising, Mike is looking forward to kicking off this new chapter of his career and creating a legacy for himself and his family.

Who Is Mike Daughtry?

Mike holds a degree from the University of Georgia and has had a rewarding career working with big-name companies like Mercedes-Benz and Kodak. He has already dabbled in the world of entrepreneurship and has been working for himself in recent years, but he is ready for a change of pace.

Mike and his wife, Amy, who is a teacher, were both committed to the process of working with FranCoach. But their family’s involvement didn’t stop there. Mike and Amy took the time to consult their adult children about each franchise opportunity they learned about during the Discovery Process, and the family’s love for ProLift was unanimous.

Why Did Mike Make a Career Change?

As an entrepreneur himself, Mike understands the benefits of being his own boss – but he also knows how difficult it is to start a business from scratch. With franchise ownership, Mike saw an opportunity to benefit from a proven system and tried-and-true methods. He didn’t want to reinvent the wheel in order to invest in a family business that his wife and children could also be involved in.

The FranCoach team helped Mike explore a few different franchise opportunities in order to hone in on one that would be a perfect fit for his whole family. With ProLift, that is exactly what they found.

Why Will Mike Make a Great Franchise Owner?

Mike worked with FranCoach’s Lisa Rios to discover a franchise that was aligned with his needs, goals, and expectations. Here’s what Lisa has to say about why Mike will make an excellent franchise owner:

“Working with Mike was a pleasure from the start. He has such a fun spirit, and his upbeat disposition is going to help him in everything he does. Mike’s tenacity and his drive to go, go, go will certainly set him up for success with ProLift.”

Why Did Mike Choose ProLift Garage Doors?

ProLift Garage Doors is an exciting home services franchise opportunity that provides repair, replacement, installation, and servicing of overhead garage doors. With offerings for both residential and commercial clients, ProLift serves an in-demand, niche market and makes for a valuable franchise investment. As part of the Premium Service Brands umbrella, ProLift is known for its franchisee support and commitment to customer service.

Mike and his family liked the structure of this service-based business and its ability to draw in repeat customers. With low overhead and a high margin, the Daughtry family saw endless potential in ProLift. But the business side of things wasn’t the only attractive factor…

ProLift is connected to a charity association called Kids-Lift, which gives back to vulnerable kids, families, and schools across the U.S. and Canada. This mission-driven aspect of the business resonated with the whole Daughtry family, but especially with Mike’s wife, Amy.

Mike, Amy, and their oldest son, Porter, attended an in-person Meet the Team Day with ProLift in Charlottesville, Virginia. They were able to make strong connections with the team, particularly Matt Woodcock, ProLift’s VP of Franchise Development. The Daughtry family is excited to bring three new ProLift locations to Georgia and benefit from the support of this strong brand!

Please join our team at FranCoach in congratulating Mike Daughtry and wishing him luck as a new owner of ProLift Garage Doors.
