About Glass Doctor of Raleigh

History and Owner

Wayne Gaudette

Glass Doctor of Raleigh opened in February 1992. Wayne Gaudette was looking to open up his own business and saw great potential in a Glass Doctor Franchise.

Wayne was born in North Conway, New Hampshire. Graduated from Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston, Massachusetts. Worked at Sanders Assoc. in NH and 26 years at Transcom Electronics in Rhode Island where he managed several manufacturing facilities. Transcom merged with Alcatel in 1998. Wayne moved to Raleigh, NC in 1990 when Alcatel decided to close those facilities in RI.

After so many years in the corporate world, Wayne followed his dream. And so it began…..
