After a 40-year career in banking, Roy Eon was looking for an investment for the future. His son, Jon, was also interested in changing careers from the long, arduous hours of restaurant management.

The two found the answer in Keller Glass and Mirror. They—along with Roy Eon’s wife, Susan—bought the business in February 2016, despite not knowing much about it.

“We wanted something that was manufacturing or installation and in the construction industry because construction was booming at the time, and we felt like it would be in [Dallas-Fort Worth] for some period of time,” Roy Eon said.

Even though the venture was a new playing field for both father and son, it did not deter the two from jumping in.

The business provides glass and mirror products as well as cutting and installation services to people all over the DFW area. This includes work on showers, cabinets, windows and other structures for both residential and commercial clients. Since the Eons took over, the business has grown to help new commercial developments nearby.


Roy Eon said he specializes in sales, while his son has a hand in almost everything else.

“You’ve got to have good people,” Jon Eon said. “You’ve got to be patient because you’re not going to learn everything just by watching or reading a book.”

And the Eons do have “good people,” they said. Some employees have worked in the industry since high school, Roy Eon said. Three longtime staff members stayed with the business through the transition of new ownership.

One of the keys to Keller Glass and Mirror’s success comes from its dedicated staff, Roy Eon said. They have been able to help customers who brought in their ideas for elaborate shapes and custom designs.

“[Our employees] are creative fabricators,” Roy Eon said.

One client requested a piece of glass be cut in the shape of Texas, which the staff obliged.

“We, pretty much, can do all those kinds of things as long as it’s safe,” Jon Eon said.

While the Eons prioritize their team, they also care about the community at large. Roy Eon is a Keller Lions Club member, and the business is active in the Greater Keller Chamber of Commerce. They have annually sponsored the Keller Police Bike Race to End Child Abuse since taking over the business, Roy Eon said.

“We love Keller,” he said. “We knew it was a good community. We’ve established good relationships here. ... We’d like to be [even] more involved.”
