Window Genie announces the grand opening of its newest location in Brooklyn Park. Local Marine Corps veteran Todd Lohstreter is the owner. Window Genie is a national home service franchise specializing in residential and light commercial window cleaning, window tinting, pressure washing, gutter cleaning and more. Window Genie of Brooklyn Park will service the western Minneapolis areas including Brooklyn Park, Maple Grove, Wayzata, Minnetonka, and the surrounding communities.

Before purchasing his Window Genie franchise, Lohstreter served in the Marines, worked in hockey ministry, and most recently served as an operations manager in distribution for a large retail company. He credits his time in ministry as the inspiration to pursue ownership. He said, “When I was in ministry I got to be part of something that was built from the ground-up. We established an amazing team of people whose efforts and passion created success for the whole group – I want to create that same environment and feel driven more than ever to do so.”

Window Genie’s executive business model will allow Lohstreter to serve as owner, not operator. “I chose Window Genie for a number of reasons, but the ability to create jobs in the community was a major deal to me,” he said. “I want to provide a fun and rewarding place to work, while filling a real need at homes and businesses in the community. I’m also looking forward to the lifestyle this business allows my family. I have two little girls under the age of two, and working from home and controlling my schedule means I don’t have to miss a moment with them.”

Window Genie of Brooklyn Park is officially open for business, booking appointments for the spring cleaning season. All field technicians are fully trained, insured, bonded and have passed a background check. For more information, or a free estimate, contact owner Todd Lohstreter at tlohstreter@windowgenie.com or by calling 763-923-6900.
