Why SHINE?

  • Residential window cleaning is a hot category for franchising: Busy families with working parents, active kids, endless messes and hectic schedules seek service providers to relieve them of major tasks at home. Plus, Shine Window Cleaning provides residential and commercial services at competitive prices so these families have more time to live, laugh and love.
  • How about these odds? Franchises enjoy a 93% success rate over the first three years, compared with only a 15% success rate of independent small business startups.
  • It just keeps getting Shinier! Shine is a business that builds on itself: Imagine a client call for Shine services after having their house painted: It’s mid-November, with Thanksgiving just around the corner and your client will serve a crowd of 15. As soon as their windows are shining clean, you learn they expect an even bigger crowd for Christmas. Shine to the rescue: You offer Shine’s holiday-light installation service
  • With 15 years of industry experience, Shine Window Cleaning offers insightful franchisee support.

We love Cleaning Windows However most people do not like cleaning windows or putting up Christmas lights.  This provides us with a very secure future.
