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:
- Residual Income
- Low Overhead
- Fast Break-even
- Niche Market
- Strong Corporate Support
- Low Investment
- Huge Growth Potential
- Minimal number of employees
- High customer retention
- Over 37 years of experience
