Kilt Wearing Window Cleaners Arrive in New Jersey
Men In Kilts, a full-service window cleaning, gutter cleaning, siding cleaning and pressure washing company, officially announced their opening in Monmouth and Ocean Counties recently. Men In Kilts is already Canada’s largest window and exterior cleaning company and is expanding fast into the US, with plans to be in every major market by 2017.
Local owner, TJ Hale, bought the New Jersey franchise rights late last year after many years in the awning business. After deciding he was ready for a change, he started exploring other business opportunities. That’s when he came across Men In Kilts – and the rest, as they say, is history.
“I wanted to be in business for myself, but having the support a franchise model provides appealed to me. The team at Men In Kilts and all their franchise owners were so helpful during my research. The further I looked into the window cleaning industry, the more I realized what a huge opportunity this was. The idea of wearing the kilt is just brilliant. People come up to me and ask for my business card, it’s amazing. They always have a smile on their face, wanting to know about the kilt or even take pictures with me,” says Hale.
Hale sees tremendous potential for Men In Kilts in his area. “My territory has some parts badly hit by Hurricane Sandy; I actually worked a lot in advance of my official opening doing volunteer work for storefronts and residences. It’s been really rewarding giving back and getting involved in the community,” says Hale.
“We’re committed to delivering a fantastic experience for our customers. Our team is excited, and looking forward to a busy Spring cleaning season on the Jersey Shore. Just remember… No Peeking!” says Hale.
