To bring smiles to the world...one kilt at a time!
Men In Kilts was started in 2002 by Nicholas Brand, a Vancouver based Scotsman who fashioned a hand sewn kilt and put a visual to the otherwise faceless window cleaner. By 2009, Men In Kilts had grown to over one million in annual revenue.
The decision was made to begin franchising the company so that homeowners and businesses across North America could experience the power of the kilt, as we bring smiles to the world … one kilt at a time! Systems were streamlined and processes were created for scalability, the franchise business and window cleaning industry was set for growth. The centralized call centre was established and the first franchise owners came on board.
The second franchise operation to open was in Victoria, BC with 9 more locations in Canada and the United States soon to follow. In January 2015, after 23 years running his own multi-million dollar window cleaning company, Chris Carrier became Men In Kilts newest CEO. Carrier bleeds tartan and is excited for the opportunity to project a vision for growth of the unique and unforgettable Men In Kilts brand, as it sets out to become a household name across North America.
Carrier’s focus is on support and inspiring growth within the existing franchise locations while providing a strong foundation for new partners to flourish. The results have been immediate with 7 additional locations joining the clan since 2015.
