Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) June 13, 2012
Many homeowners are able to tackle the cleaning tasks inside their home, but how many are able to get on a ladder and completely clean their own windows, siding and gutters? How many homeowners are comfortable doing that, and furthermore, have the tools and supplies to do so? Those living in Rochester Hills, MI don’t need to worry anymore! Window Genie, the leader in home services, announces the grand opening of a new location in Rochester Hills. Ron Hays will own and operate this franchise, opening his doors for business on Monday June 11.
Hays spent the past 12 years in the automotive industry at a job that required him to travel for long periods of time away from his family. Now having a two-year-old at home, Hays asked himself, “Is another job the way to go? My hours may not change so should I keep doing the same thing or change our future?” He opted to pursue the franchise market for opportunities to become his own boss. “I had been building a lot of managerial skills throughout my career and felt it was time to put those to use as an owner/operator of my own business,” Hays said.
Hays worked with a franchise coach at a placement agency called The Entrepreneur’s Source. He and his coach matched Window Genie and a few other companies with Hays based on his skills, strengths, weaknesses and interests. After looking into those companies, Hays said, “It did not take long to settle onto Window Genie. After talking to a few existing franchise owners, I knew it was the company for me.”
Hays chose Window Genie for many reasons. He felt it was a business in which he had control over his success. Speaking with a few of Window Genie’s most successful franchisees, he asked them what they did apart from anyone else to achieve such success. David Flax of Atlanta, Georgia told Hays, “I do exactly what they tell me. Their business model works. I am on the phone with corporate everyday and am just willing to listen and learn.” Another big selling point for Hays was the modest vibe he felt from the corporate office. “Other companies I talked to, I was directed to a sales person who was selling me their company. It felt very cookie-cutter, as though I was buying cable or something. I was so happy when I didn’t hear the slogan ‘we clean windows and a whole lot more!’ from anyone I talked to at Window Genie. It felt real and genuine because they could talk openly and honestly about the business without having to sell me on it. The information laid out really spoke for itself.”
