Local Veteran Takes Control of His Success, Opens Window Genie Franchise in Chelmsford

Paul Hartwig’s best friend owns a Window Genie in Kansas City. After being laid off last year, Hartwig decided to pursue a similar path.

This was the right choice for me, because I know I'll get out of it what I put in. And I'm ready to give it my all.

Window Genie announces the grand opening of its newest location in Chelmsford, MA. Local man Paul Hartwig is the owner. Window Genie is a national home service franchise specializing in residential and commercial window cleaning, window tinting, pressure washing, gutter cleaning and more. Window Genie of Chelmsford officially opens for business on September 11th and serves the communities of Chelmsford, Westford, Billerica, Lowell and the surrounding areas.

Before purchasing his business, Hartwig served in the Navy for 9 years before working in information systems technology as a systems engineer. He said, “It got to the point where I just wasn’t passionate about it anymore, and while considering a change, I was laid off. It was a blessing in disguise that pushed me to make a decision on what the next chapter of my life would look like.”

Jamie Lyndes, childhood friend to Hartwig, purchased a Window Genie franchise in Kansas City, MO last year. Hartwig said, “When I found out Jamie owned a business, I was excited for him, and felt drawn to the concept of business ownership for me.” Hartwig says he’s been observing Lyndes’ experience, and feels he’s benefitted from hearing Lyndes’ truly honest perspective. “Knowing the good, the bad and the ugly on business ownership, the pros outweighed the cons for me, and I started to really believe this was the right path.”

Hartwig officially opens for business Monday September 11. He said, “This was the right choice for me, because I know I’ll get out of it what I put in. And I’m ready to give it my all. I’m motivated to be successful as my own boss, and am grateful to have a really solid support team at Window Genie’s corporate headquarters backing me up.”
