Window Genie Franchise
Window Genie is widely recognized for our outstanding customer service and multiple revenue stream platform. Together, these created a clean and effective business model: to provide time-starved homeowners with window cleaning and other related services by trained and professional technicians on a year-round basis at a price that is both affordable and competitive. Additional services include window tinting, pressure washing and tile and grout cleaning and are performed by uniformed employees that have been background-checked and wear ID badges to clearly identify them to the customer. Easily identified by our “lightning wrapped” GENIEMOBILE’s, we provide services to residential and commercial customers from Mansions to Mobile homes.
Window Genie Company History
The inspiration and motivation to find and build a professional & sustainable business model came toWindow Genie’s Founder and CEO Richard Nonelle back in 1994. After choosing to leave Corporate America and become an “entrepreneur”, he sifted through the thousands of opportunities that existed. After stumbling upon the service industry and with the guidance of his childhood friend and his family, who had made their fortune in the janitorial supply business, the inspiration to create the first national window cleaning company was born. Starting with one small van and the original name “Signal Window Cleaning Services”, the company was off and running. Over time, additional services were added to meet customer demand and in 1998, the name was changed to “Window Genie” to create a more recognizable and name and logo he could brand and market. Now operating in over 100 markets and 22 states, Window Genie is a company on the move, most recently recognized by Entrepreneur Magazine as the 41st Fastest Growing Franchise.
