Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) January 26, 2006
The owners of Squeegee Squad™, a residential and new construction window cleaning company headquartered in Blaine, MN, have sold their first franchise.

They will be operating in Chaska, Chanhassen, Victoria, Shakopee, Credit River Township, Jordan, Belle Plaine, Prior Lake, Savage, Eden Prairie, Bloomington, Lakeville, Farmington, Apple Valley, Eagan, Inver Grove Heights, Rosemount and Hastings.
The Antonello’s parents have there windows cleaned regularly by the original Squeegee Squad and when they heard Squeegee Squad was franchising they immediately referred Joe and Genevieve.
The company’s founder and president is Jack Ruegsegger of Ham Lake, Minnesota. His brother, Joe, of Maple Grove, Minnesota is the vice president. Jack (29) and Joe (26), started the original company, known then as Jack & Joe’s Window Cleaning, Inc., in 1999. The two have seen overwhelming success with the Squeegee Squad™ concept in the Twin Cities metro area. They have taken their concept from a small two-man operation to a booming business.
By deciding to franchise the Squeegee Squad™ brand, Jack and Joe are able to go forth with their nationwide development of the Squeegee Squad™ brand of top quality window cleaning service. Jack and Joe will be focusing sales in the Midwest.
The success of Squeegee Squad™ has won many awards for great customer service including The Angie’s List Super Service Award in 2002, 2003, and 2004. They have already been featured in the Madison Capital Times newspaper (September 13, 2005) and the Anoka County Shopper (December 2, 2005).
Jack and Joe are also very committed to giving back to the community. In 2005 they began donating free window cleaning to all of the homes that the Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity built and other local organizations. Jack believes that “all successful businesses have an obligation to give back to the community.”
Each franchisee will have access to the following: customized Squeegee Squad™ software, a detailed operations manual, initial and ongoing support and future advertising co-ops. Each franchisee will complete training at corporate headquarters on the “wall of windows” as well as classroom and onsite training, be assured a protected territory, special arrangements with suppliers, and a franchisee website. In addition, a representative will visit the franchisee’s territory for initial sales and set-up training.
