Facts about this franchise:
Starting a Window Cleaning Business
Open Your Window to a Brighter Future
Cleaning-related businesses make up a large portion of service franchises. During your research on franchise ownership opportunities, we are sure that you have come across more than one article highlighting the size of the cleaning services sector. Research firm, IBIS World, projected in 2021 the residential cleaning service franchise industry would end year with $899.9 million in generated revenue.
Window cleaning services fall into this category and are a compelling franchise sector worth consideration. A home generally represents the largest investment a family will make in their lives, so homeowners are motivated to keep their property looking good, including clean windows. This makes window cleaning a recession-resilient business. Homeowners who regularly clean their windows enjoy:
- A clearer view of the outside world
- Superior glass protection against the elements
- Reduced heating & electric bills by improving insulation qualities
- Enhanced home values when selling
These benefits help create a large consumer audience that is often quite receptive to contracting for window cleaning services.
Window Genie® is one of the industry's premier franchises with over 20 years of experience supporting more than 125 franchise owners.

Benefits of Owning a Window Genie Franchise
A Better Work Schedule
We are a Monday – Friday business working 9-5 hours. Our customers like to have our services completed before they return home from work, so you are out of their home typically by 5 p.m. This is a key business component if you are looking for more control of your time and personal freedom.
Multiple Service Offerings
With Multiple Service Offerings, franchise owners can generate year-round business through various avenues:
- Window Cleaning
- Gutter Cleaning
- Power Washing
- Window Tinting
- Holiday Lights
Most of our services are performed on an ongoing basis. Except for window film, which is a one-time install, our primary services are typically used between 2 and 4 times per year, providing franchisees with a recurring business opportunity.
How We Support You
Marketing is the engine that drives your business development program and, ultimately, your business success. Yet, today, effective prospecting requires finely-tuned traditional and digital marketing skills, which few small businesses have.
Our Window Genie robust marketing system is designed to promote your window cleaning franchise to the broadest and most desirable audience by utilizing all the essential tools that you will need to establish a powerful presence in your territory. Those tools include:
- Local website
- CRM – Email campaigns
- Local business marketing
- Online advertising
- Social media account management
- Customer feedback
- Client retention strategies
Why The Residential Window Cleaning Industry?
A Niche Space
Within the cleaning industry, there is fierce competition. More than 50 franchise brands offer office cleaning, home cleaning, or carpet cleaning services. Yet one segment of the popular cleaning industry isn't overcrowded with franchise systems: Residential window cleaning. That creates an opportunity for you to own a franchise where you can quickly impact the market and jump-start your business.
A Balanced Life
Also, people don't need emergency window services at 8 p.m. on a Thursday. In other words, you can build your business without sacrificing your personal life. Our franchise owners often tell us how glad they are to have stayed away from retail and restaurant businesses (and the grueling hours those sectors require) when deciding to invest in a Window Genie franchise location.
Demand for window cleaning services is strong, and as a repeat service, you can continue to serve your customers year after year, building a residual income business. Windows, decks, gutters, and sidewalks get dirty no matter what the economy does. People who value a clean home continue to spend on maintaining and caring for their largest investment.
Ideal Franchise Owner
A Heart for Service and a Drive to Succeed
Our roster of franchise owners includes people from diverse backgrounds, including CPAs, engineers, sales reps, veterinarians, and former fast-food franchise owners. While their experiences vary, the common thread among all our franchisees is a desire to succeed at owning their own business.
To be successful as a Window Genie franchise owner, you don't have to be highly specialized. If you have a sound business mind, a high desire to succeed, and you are trainable and coachable, Window Genie can help you build the business you envision.
