“Ben had a great career in the yachting industry and we are thrilled to have him join the Window Genie team for his second career.”
- Richard Nonelle, President of Window Genie
Cincinnati, Ohio (PRWEB) September 06, 2011
How many things can one think of around the house that needs to be done when spring arrives? How many of those jobs do homeowners put off doing because they don’t feel comfortable on a ladder, or because it takes too much time or they don’t feel they have the skill to complete? Like most homeowners, they don’t “do” window cleaning…. Or seal their driveway…. Or wash their house exterior.
Now those in the Savannah, Georgia, and surrounding area have another option to doing it themselves. Window Genie®, a national franchisor of window cleaning and other home services, has granted a new franchise territory to Benjamin Francis, who runs his franchise from his home office in Savannah, Georgia. Francis’ franchise services Savannah, Wilmington Island, Whitemarsh Island, Tybee Island, Skidaway Island, Isle of Hope, Thunderbolt, and Sandfly, Georgia, and surrounding areas.
Francis, originally from the South Coast of England, is a yacht captain and engineer by trade, and spent 10 years at sea before moving to America a year and a half ago. He “met a girl from Georgia” on his travels whom he married, and moved to Savannah, Georgia. When he started looking for a job in the States, he thought it would be pretty difficult with no college degree to find a job at which he could move up the ladder. He considered starting a business, but admitted, “I was a pretty good candidate to becoming a statistic doing it on my own, so a franchise was a good middle ground.” He researched his options and decided that a Window Genie franchise would be the ideal way to reach his goal of being his own boss. “The potential is there. There is no glass ceiling. I become master of my own destiny.”
Best known for their expert window cleaning, Window Genie offers other affordable home care services such as window tinting; deck and fence, concrete, and brick cleaning and sealing; house washing; gutter clean-out; gutter protection; tile and grout cleaning; and solar shades.
Window Genie is a year-round business. The multiple revenue streams take the ‘seasonality’ out of the equation. Windows can be cleaned during cold, snowy weather, as well as, hot and humid weather. A light rain will not affect the technicians or the windows. It is the year round service that lets them retain their qualified technicians so that they can keep the cleaning quality consistent.
“Ben had a great career in the yachting industry and we are thrilled to have him join the Window Genie team for his second career,” said Richard Nonelle, President of Window Genie®. “Ben will make a great addition to the Window Genie team and we are excited to have him start promoting the Window Genie brand.”
