The Company is a profitable and growing window cleaning company operating in West Michigan. The Company serves both residential and commercial markets (including buildings of any height). Additionally, the Company offers its customers pressure washing and gutter cleaning services. Unlike many other window cleaning companies, this Company relies heavily on nose-to-glass cleaning (cleaners working right up next to the glass), as opposed to water-fed pole systems.
The owner is selling to relocate closer to family (out of state), however will remain through a transition period to ensure for a successful transition. Presently, the owner operates from a home-based office so there is no real estate involved.
Support from the Franchise – The franchisor is serious about giving great support not just by providing cutting edge business systems, but by giving high priority to the needs of each and every franchise partner. Support also includes web-based tools, training, safety instruction, and proprietary software for scheduling and managing customers.
Growing Number of Commercial Customers – The Company has a growing book of corporate clients, which provide the company with much higher revenue volume, long-term contracts, and a high degree of flexibility for when the work can be completed.
Ease of Ownership Transition – There are no industry specific licenses or accreditations required to operate a window cleaning business in Michigan. As long as the business is following OSHA safety procedures, and paying for general liability and workers’ compensation insurance, it is fulfilling all legal requirements of the state. All training can be completed within three to four months.
Stay the Course – Over the past three years the company has tripled sales and doubled profits with only limited marketing efforts. The Company’s reputation for quality work and professionalism generates most of its new sales. The key strategy of a new owner for continued growth should be to simply maintain the Company’s high level of quality while pursuing commercial contract business.
Grow with West Michigan – To a large extent, the future growth of the Company is dependent on the success of the region. Grand Rapids and the surrounding areas are experiencing phenomenal economic growth, which is driving heavy investment in residential and commercial real estate. New high-rise and residential towers under construction or slated for construction are of particular interest to the Company.
