  • (1888PressRelease) June 14, 2011 - Get A Grip, Inc., a family-owned, national franchise company with headquarters in Albuquerque, is pleased to announce that it has debuted on the Military Friendly Franchises® 2011 List.

"It's our way of rewarding the entrepreneurial spirit of men and women who have served our country, sacrificing themselves for our safety. So it's an honor to be recognized among the top companies in the United States for our efforts."

    The Military Friendly Franchises® rankings are determined through exhaustive research by the G.I. Jobs Military Friendly Franchise team. The research includes a comprehensive survey of more than 4,000 franchises. An advisory board consisting of three franchise industry experts helps determine survey questions and weightings.

The company's network of 33 locations in 16 states around the country resurfaces laminate or cultured marble countertops with our Eurostone® design, repairs cracked fiberglass bathtubs, scratched or stained porcelain bathtubs, tile showers and enclosures.
