NOVUS Glass, the inventor of windshield repair, is proud to welcome new franchisee, Dan Ostby. Dan will be bringing NOVUS’ high quality of service to the North Metropolitan area of Minnesota. A longtime entrepreneur, Dan is an experienced business owner. “I have always enjoyed owning and running my own business,” stated Dan, “I like being able to make my own decisions and the flexibility it offers my family.” Dan recently owned a healthcare staffing agency. Though the field was rewarding it demanded a large time commitment. With small children at home, Dan decided to look for other options.

Currently Dan is a stay at home Dad. He loves spending time with his children and helping them reach their goals. Knowing that his children are getting older Dan decided it was time to find a business that would best fit the needs of his family. He wanted to find a business that would not only incorporate his own interests, but would also offer the flexibility he needed as a stay at home Dad. After completing some research Dan met with NOVUS Director of Franchise & Development Scott Rethwill. “Scott provided me with the opportunities I was looking for,” said Dan “His direction helped guide me to my decision to start a NOVUS Franchise”. Dan is thankful for all the support he is receiving from NOVUS. He is aiming to not only have a successful NOVUS business but to continually grow it in hopes of sharing it with his children when they get older.

“We here at NOVUS are excited to have Dan bring his services to the North Twin Cities Metro area,” said Keith Beveridge, Senior Vice President of NOVUS, Inc. “With Dan’s vast business expertise I  know he can build a successful NOVUS franchise. I am confident he will do an excellent job of presenting NOVUS’ high standards of technical and customer service”.
