"Our growth since we were founded in 1999 has been phenomenal. We've gone from the two of us to a staff of 23 to keep up with the demand for our products and services both locally and from our franchisees around the country," says Sharon Dillard, CEO and co-founder, from the company's headquarters location on 8905 Adams Street NE in Albuquerque. "We're thrilled that our growth pushed us into our bigger, 6,000 square foot space last year with a beautiful showroom that really demonstrates how Get A Grip can resurface practically any surface in your home or office."
In 1998, Ryan Dillard left Dallas, Texas in a red Jeep, carrying only a few belongings and a desire to take a break from his studies at Southern Methodist University. His plan? To visit family in the mountains of New Mexico and to think about the direction of his life. The furthest thing from his mind was starting a family business that would blaze a trail in the resurfacing industry. During Ryan's visit, he discovered how someone could restore worn bathtubs and countertops―
A year later, Sharon began dividing her time between Dallas and Albuquerque. Six months after that, Sharon left her executive position to begin concentrating on marketing and advertising for Get A Grip. That convinced Cub to bring his 30 years of sales and finance experience to the growing company as CFO. Cub now acts as National Franchise Consultant.
Get A Grip is both a home grown and family owned company, with Ryan now serving as President. Sharon and Cub's other son, Austen, joined the rest of the family at Get A Grip in 2000 and found his true calling and career as Vice President overseeing all aspects of the company's safety program.
Get A Grip's dedication to researching, creating and implementing new and increasingly efficient techniques and products has set the company apart from others in the remodeling industry from the beginning. The company even holds a unique patent and several registered trademarks. Unbeatable warranties help Get A Grip back up its claim that it has the best products and the best processes in the industry. Get A Grip's proprietary, breakthrough, and patented products, which are designed for laminate, porcelain, fiberglass, and tile surfaces, cure in just 24 hours.
Get A Grip leads the resurfacing industry, outselling and outperforming all competitors in the areas it services. The company maintains an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau, as has received accolades for being among the city's Best Places to Work, a Top Women Owned Business, and having a Top Performing CEO. Get A Grip debuted on the Entrepreneur®'s Franchise 500® list of franchise companies in the United States and Canada in 2007.
