Largest Grossing Window Cleaning Franchise Location

Squeegee Squad Reports Largest Franchised Window Cleaning Business in the Country!

As most US franchise organizations have renewed their Franchise Disclosure Documents for 2015, Squeegee Squad corporate staff members have reviewed some industry disclosure documents and are glad to announce that Squeegee Squad appears to have the highest grossing window cleaning franchise location in the country! It also looks like Squeegee Squad Headquarters publishes the most transparent and complete financial figures per location according to the comparison of Item 19 financial performance representations.

The highest grossing Squeegee Squad Franchise location reported $2,250,881.27 in 2014 gross revenue.  This top Squeegee Squad location grew from $1,878,703.39 in 2013. The next window cleaning franchise competitor published their 2014 largest location’s revenue at $887,142, which was down from their 2013 published number of $948,024. This competitor only published their largest grossing unit total and did not publish totals of other units. The next largest window cleaning franchise competitor did not choose to publish any gross revenue figures at all.

As other organizations only focus on 1 or 2 of the 4 window cleaning niches, Squeegee Squad focuses on all 4. This includes the large commercial niche.  Squeegee Squad owners are able to go after large corporate clients,  government clients, and more. This additional focus allows Squeegee Squad franchise partners to have much greater gross revenue potential which can equate to much greater net profit potential.

 “I’m guessing that some of our franchise owners made more money than I did last year!…  LOL!  I love that!” – Co-Founder, Joe Ruegsegger.

Squeegee Squad Window Cleaning Franchise Convention 2015

Is that Jack Nicholson at the Squeegee Squad window cleaning franchise convention?

Ok, ok, ok… the real Jack must have been at a Lakers game.  John Geenen is a Jack Nicholson impersonator and motivational speaker who addressed the Squad Nation on an essential topic that all business owners need to be reminded of from time to time.  John’s keynote titled “Jack up your Thinking” focused on a critical attribute that all business owners need to be…  A Positive Leader!  A Leader who acknowledges that perception is a matter of perspective.

If you are a successful business owner, then you probably have enjoyed the process of building your own company and you have learned to lead in an optimistic way.  Great leaders positively motivate partners, employees, and customers.  This leadership characteristic is highly valued in the Squeegee Squad corporate culture.

Most business owners thrive with help, guidance, counseling, and encouragement from others who have achieved success.  It is an advantage to have a group of Squeegee Squad partners who are all accomplishing goals and growing their own window cleaning franchise businesses.  If business ownership was easy, everyone would be doing it.  Unfortunately, fear drives many individuals who dream of owning their own business to never take the plunge into business ownership at all.  Fortunately, the franchise business model offers systems, help, and support from corporate partners who consider corporate success to be absolutely contingent on the success of each individual franchise partner locally.  Squeegee Squad partners are part of an exclusive club of hard working entrepreneurs who have been able to take the leap and participate in a positive and aggressive culture to achieve greater personal success.

The Squeegee Squad international window cleaning franchise convention on January 29th & 30th, was a great opportunity for all Squad Nation partners to gather, revive, network, and be encouraged.  Partners came to learn, build deeper strategic relationships, and set goals to propel them into 2015.  Squeegee Squad individuals came from all over the country and from as far as Lagos, Nigeria!

Other highlights included:

  • International Window Cleaning Association (IWCA) – Safety Training & Certification
  • Window Cleaning Competition
  • Vendor Seminars & Cutting Edge New Product Demonstrations
  • Poolside Meetings
  • After Hours Fun & Networking
  • Banquet Dinner & More
