Values & History
A corporate culture 20 years in the making, Window Genie is about much more than window cleaning. Most window cleaning operations are run by smaller, mom-and-pop" businesses driving unmarked vans. These businesses don't wear uniforms and often hire people without checking their credentials or backgrounds, leading to forgettable experiences for their clients. Window Genie, founded in 1994 and franchising since 1998, now operates over 100 locations with their trademarked purple-wrapped vehicles, spiffy uniforms, and service-oriented professional team members. We operate with the mission to ensure customers not only remember us - they can't wait for us to come back. We know that if we exceed the customer's expectations the first time, they'll invite us back the next time every time.
Window services and exterior cleaning was a $9 billion industry in 2018, growing an average of 3.4% annually over the previous five-year period. A 2.2% jump in 2018 accounts for the rising trend in demand for exterior cleaning services, particularly in the commercial sectors, while economic improvements continue to foster a growing demand for household services as disposable incomes improve and the average age of homeowners in the US rises.
