The Clear Lights® concept was born many years ago out of Norm's customer’s needs at his shop in Delaware. Customers were always asking if Norm could help them make their headlights look better, but more importantly, help them to be able to see at night. Their high beams looked like low beams and they were having a terrible time seeing. Until recently, the only available help was to buy a new lens cover, but that could cost the customer anywhere from $200.00 to $1600.00 per headlight! Many attempts were made to polish the headlights to try to clear them up with very poor, temporary results. Then, along came headlight cleaning kits, and as they produced a little bit better results, it was no match to a brand new lens cover. These results were also only temporary, lasting at most, a few months. So, on Norm went, experimenting with different ideas he had, getting better and better results until he got it just right!
For years now, Norm has been offering his services to his customers and their referrals. Folks have been so happy with the results, that they ended up bringing in their new vehicles, their children’s vehicles, tractor trailers, RVs, and more. And years later, customers continued to be pleased with how great their restorations looked. Knowing how dangerous cloudy headlights are, and how unsightly they can be on all types of vehicles, Norm wanted to do more than service just his local customers, he wanted to reach as many folks as possible to let them know that they had a choice. That they didn’t have to drive with their high beams on at night just to still barely see, that their children could be safer day and night, and that they no longer had to just wish their headlights looked better, they could actually do something about it, so he and his wife, Amy, formed Clear Lights®.
Clear Lights® began to service used car dealerships, company fleets, auto auctions, the general public, and more. People came from everywhere wanting their headlights restored. It quickly became apparent that this was much bigger than a one man operation! To be able to keep up with the demand, and in an effort to try to help as many folks as possible be safer, we decided that franchising was the way to go, and away we went! We hired the top franchise development company in the world, Francorp. Francorp is the world's largest firm specializing in franchise consulting.
