Fish Window Cleaning is the dominant window cleaning franchise in North America. FISH franchisees do not clean windows; they have employees who clean. Their job is to manage the business. FISH focuses on low-rise commercial window cleaning and has developed it into a much larger and more profitable business than you would ever dream possible. Competition is typically unimpressive, poorly managed, and unreliable. FISH combines a professional approach (a clean professional look, proprietary scheduling and routing software, solid training and franchisee support, allowing the franchisee to give exceptional customer service on time, every time) with an effective, straightforward sales process that gobbles up market share. Candidates can build a large and profitable business with FISH and have a great lifestyle to boot.
