all successful businesses have an obligation to give back to the community.
Blaine, MN (PRWEB) August 11, 2006
As a former Sergeant in Iraq and Bethel College alumni, the Squeegee Squad franchise team saw Ben as a great addition to the organization. Ben’s disciplined and hardworking character, learned from the Army, will benefit his business as he applies the Squeegee Squad system to his Atlanta market.
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, 2004 and 2005. They have already been featured in the Star Tribune newspaper (March 16, 2003), the Madison Capital Times newspaper (September 13, 2005), the Anoka County Shopper (December 2, 2005) and the Wheaton College Alumni Magazine (Spring 2006).
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.
