About Glass Doctor of Virginia Beach
Edwin Cape decided in 2006 to open a Glass Doctor franchise in Virginia Beach to serve the entire Tidewater area. At that time, there were no full-service glass replacement companies in the area. Glass Doctor is a one stop all glass repair needs. It is the only full-service glass replacement company located across the United States and Canada.
Edwin has three engineering degrees covering the areas of electrical control systems and engineering management. He started out his career working for GE as a field engineer and then moved into management. He grew and developed service businesses for GE and Alvey Systems. In 2003, he opened up his first franchise in Newport News and has grown it into the largest residential cleaning business in the area. In 2006, he purchased the Glass Doctor territory in Virginia Beach.
