Two Decades Of Franchise Experience!


Gatsby Glass is setting the new Diamond Standard in the Glass Industry as we bring 3D Technology and an Innovative Sales Process to a fragmented industry across both the Residential and Commercial lines.

This stops the pondering minds of clients that always wonder what a project will look like completed and instead offer them a solution to their project as our 3D / CAD imaging allows for a view into what your completed project will look like from glass to hardware.

That is just the start of our World Class Service and Sales Process as we start each appointment with an Expert Design Consultant to roll out a virtual showroom. This allows for the clients to never leave home or the office again as they can see each option from their current location!

You pick out the glass, style, hardware, and everything involved to complete you project at the convenience of a fingertip. Each Installation is meant to bring in recurring revenue as not only do we install your glass but we show you how to clean and maintain it also!

We have a proprietary package that allows you to maintain the warranty by removing hard water stains, sealing, and cleaning with our Crystal Shield System.

We are a micro-winery franchise. We outsource all of the agriculture part of the winery business and simply import the "grape-must" or crushed grapes from vineyards worldwide. We operate a large production facility at our HQ to supply our start-ups with finished wine, but over the first year of operation, they become an independent producer of wine.

Our wineries are located in urban, populated areas in retail space - we bring the winery to the people!

The difference between a Waters Edge Winery & Bistro and a traditional winery is that we do not grow or crush the grapes – we outsource those functions to a global network of vineyards and growers. This lowers the cost of ownership, and removes the biggest risk associated with most wineries.

Actual wine production is done onsite. A Waters Edge Winery & Bistro® makes several wines that are exclusive to our winery locations. We make many of the popular varietals, including Merlots, Cabs and Chardonnays. We also make some harder-to-find wines such as Barolos, Gewurztraminers, Pinotages, Petit Verdot and Ports. We source grapes globally that will allow you to make over 50 different kinds of wine using grapes from the best grape growing regions in the world. Places such as California, Italy, France, New Zealand, Chile and Germany.

We also offer a lineup of wines that are found nowhere else and add to the spectrum of tastes for our guests. These include fun wines such as our popular Peach Apricot Chardonnay and Cranberry Malbec. These wines are easy for nearly everyone to enjoy – low in alcohol and slightly off-dry.

In addition to wine sales by the bottle and glass, a Waters Edge Winery® also offers the following:

  • Bistro-style appetizers and desserts

  • Custom labeling

  • Wine Club

  • Private Parties and Events

  • Wholesale Sales

Why the winery industry?

  • Wine consumption has grown every year for over a decade and the consumer craves the winery experience in all geographical areas.

  • Our model is a new twist on one of the oldest products known to man. We make high quality wines without the hassle of owning vineyards.

  • We can put one of our wineries anywhere - find a retail space with 2,500-4,000 SF and we can place a winery there!

Why Waters Edge Wineries?

  • We are the only one with our model in the United States

  • The gross profit margins on the wine produced by our franchisees are above 80%

  • We give our owners the winery lifestyle without having to be multi-millionaires

Cash Investment: $150,000

Total Investment: $803,857 - $1,168,423
