Family of Executives Combine Skills to Run Two Locations

“We are excited to join forces with our business-driven daughter and son as we expand our footprint in the south-central region of the country,” said Tom Fawbush, senior.

Window World, America’s largest replacement window and remodeling company, announced new leadership for its Elizabethtown and Louisville locations. Window World of Elizabethtown and Window World of Kentuckiana will be owned by husband-and-wife team Tom and Lillian Fawbush and their children Tom Fawbush, Jr. and Sarah Waskey.

Louisville natives, Tom and Lillian Fawbush joined the Window World team 17 years ago as the owner-operators of a franchise in South Central Indiana. Prior to joining the company, Tom worked as a sales and design consultant, while Lillian held the position of vice president of human resources for Citi.

Their son, Tom Jr., brings 33 years of media experience to the business as the vice president of Word Media Group, director of a media brokering agency Spectrum Solutions, and broadcast consultant. At Word Media Group, he manages four television stations nationally, two locally and and five radio stations in Louisville. His sister, Sarah, will use her 22 years of accounting expertise to oversee both stores’ finances. She is the COO and CFO for Strothman and Company, one of Louisville’s premier accounting firms. In addition to their other roles, Sarah and Tom Jr. are real estate investors in the Louisville area. All four co-owners are thrilled to combine their accounting, franchising, sales, and media skills to serve the Elizabethtown and Louisville communities.

“We are a business-oriented family with strong ties and decades of entrepreneurial experience in the Kentuckiana Area,” said Tom Fawbush, Jr. “Each of us brings a unique skill set to the table, which will translate into serving our region better. Which translates into success.”

One of the first changes to the Louisville location is a name change. Window World of Louisville will now be Window World of Kentuckiana. “We serve such a wide region and why not start the new era with the new name,” said Tom Fawbush, Jr.

Window World, a franchise based out of North Wilkesboro, North Carolina, was founded in 1995 and provides homeowners with replacement windows that carry a lifetime limited warranty, are energy efficient, and made in the United States. The company also offers other installation and exterior remodeling services. Window World has more than 220 locations across the country and is rapidly growing to new markets.

The Fawbush family enjoys the independence of small business ownership while being backed by the benefits of a big business network. Window World has one of the most comprehensive training platforms in the franchise industry, creating a fast track to getting the doors open and earning revenue. The company’s ongoing support, as well as its dedication to helping entrepreneurs thrive in business, is what made the Fawbush family confident in bringing two more window replacement and remodeling stores into the community they call home.

“We are excited to join forces with our business-driven daughter and son as we expand our footprint in the south-central region of the country,” said Tom Fawbush, senior. “About 17 years ago, I made a wonderful move to join the Window World Family and we never looked back. When we learned about the opportunity to own and operate a franchises in our hometown, it made perfect sense. We look forward serving our dear friends and neighbors in the place we call home.”

“From the very beginning, the Fawbush family impressed us with their drive and dedication to delivering high-quality services to our customers,” said Window World CEO Tammy Whitworth. “When the business opportunities in Louisville opened, we immediately thought of Tom senior and his family. This group of talented professionals truly set the bar high when it comes to their eagerness for business growth and ability to surpass yearly revenue goals.”

There are currently 10 Window World locations in Kentucky, with more ownership opportunities in California, Oregon, Washington, Montana, Texas, and more.
