Peter Bateman & Danielle West - Franchisee owner of The Glass Guru of West Minneapolis, Top Glass Shop in West Minneapolis

Peter Bateman


Hello neighbors! I’m Peter Bateman, owner of The Glass Guru of West Minneapolis since 2022.  

I grew up in LeCreschent, MN, and went to college at the University of Minnesota Duluth. I now reside in Eden Prairie, MN since 2021. Prior to The Glass Guru, I gained valuable experience in customer service, sales, and business management working at The Glass Guru of Duluth for 5 years before deciding to purchase a The Glass Guru franchise of my own.

I started The Glass Guru because I enjoy having the ability to run and manage my own store and wanted to have a positive impact on my community.  What I like most about this business is the ability to chase my dreams and help customers. 

Outside of work, I enjoy fitness and gardening.  My spouse of seven years, Danielle, and I have a Beagle/Lab mix named Mia and a Shih-Tzu/Bichon mix named Winnie. On weekends you might find me/us working out or spending time outside with friends and family. 

It’s a great honor and privilege to have the opportunity to serve you and we hope to be the local glass shop you can trust and rely on for many years to come.
