When One Garage Door Closes, Another One Opens: Meet ProLift’s New Owners

We are excited to announce the newest owners of ProLift Garage Doors: Julie and Keith Mason. After spearheading the couple’s journey into franchise ownership, Julie is enthusiastic about starting her own business and building her family’s future.  

Who Are Julie and Keith Mason?

Residents of Pennsylvania, Julie and Keith are parents to six children, whose ages range from sixteen to twenty-eight. They consider parenthood one of their highest achievements and are heavily involved in their children’s extracurricular activities, but both Julie and Keith are incredibly accomplished outside the home as well. 

Julie holds numerous graduate and post-graduate degrees in safety and environmental management and is currently a Ph.D. candidate pursuing a degree in strategic leadership. She is a hardworking woman who is passionate about the opportunity to build a strong financial future for herself and her loved ones. 

Why Did Julie and Keith Make a Career Change?

When Julie was looking for a new job, she stumbled upon the idea of franchise ownership. While she was put off by some of the more salesman-like approaches in the industry, she was able to build a strong relationship with Katie Lepper at FranCoach. Katie and Julie worked together throughout the Discovery Process and Katie became a trusted guide and partner throughout the Masons’ journey. 

Katie introduced Julie and Keith to ProLift Garage Doors, the perfect match for their needs, goals, and expectations. The couple was hoping to find a franchise brand that would offer them longevity and a way to serve their community – and ProLift offered them just that. 

Why Will Julie and Keith Make Great Franchise Owners?

Julie and Keith approached the Discovery Process with a high level of focus and dedication, making their journey fruitful and rewarding. Here is what Katie Lepper of FranCoach has to say about why the Masons will be excellent owners of ProLift Garage Doors: 

“Both Julie and Keith are incredibly detail-oriented and precise. They were careful and thoughtful during the entirety of the Discovery Process, which made it that much clearer at the end of the day that ProLift was the perfect fit. I know that the Masons will follow the plan laid out for them and truly find success and fulfillment in this endeavor.” 

Why Did Julie and Keith Choose ProLift?

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. 

When Katie introduced Julie to the brand, she was immediately excited to make her mark in a traditionally male-dominated industry. With her background in safety, Julie knew that ProLift would give her the chance to let her skills shine. Through FranCoach’s partners at FranFund, the Masons were able to use the ROBS (rollovers as business startups) program to fund their franchise and make their dreams of business ownership a reality. 

With the help of a few key players along the way – including Tera Thomas of FranFund and Matt Woodcock of Premium Service Brands – Julie and Keith are ready to get started lifting up their community. 

Please join our team at FranCoach in congratulating the Mason family and wishing them luck as new owners of ProLift Garage Doors.
