Mike Merrick founded Fish Window Cleaning in January 1978. Based on growing demand and his success, Mike realized there was a need for this service in other markets. He used his 20 years of experience to create the Fish Window Cleaning franchise system. In 1998, the first FISH franchise opened in Tampa, FL, and from there, FISH became the world’s largest window cleaning company with over 200 franchisees coast-to-coast.
FISH owners experience a business that gives them a great lifestyle immediately (no nights, weekends, or holidays) and the ability to go out every day and grow their business in a market with fragmented competition. Most importantly, the owner is not the window cleaner, but the business professional who is dedicated to following the complete franchise system. In addition, FISH is a smart business decision because of:
We make it easy to get your business up and running. Our experienced development team walks you through the entire process from start to finish.
What is FISH's support like?
FISH has been committed to providing the highest level of support in the franchise service industry. FISH has one person at HQ for every 8 franchisees to provide great support in all areas including: tech and software support, marketing, human resources, growth and business planning, bidding, employee management, etc.
Does Fish Window Cleaning have protected territories?
Yes. Protected territories are built from zip codes. Working with a development manager, you have freedom and flexibility to customize your territory. We work together to build a territory based on population and business count ratios. The final size of the territory is based upon the geographic region and your desired size of business.
How does FISH differ from its competition?
According to extensive surveys from our customers, the number one reason customers choose FISH is RELIABILITY. They trust FISH will send professional and friendly window cleaners to their establishments who focus on attention to detail and great customer service, year-round regardless of rain, snow, or shine.
Who are FISH's customers?
FISH's customers include all low-rise commercial businesses and buildings as well as homes that have windows. There is glass as far as the eye can see, and FISH goes after every business that might only have one window and door up to large office complexes, retirement homes, and universities.

They're very helpful."
