Men In Kilts, a window and exterior cleaning franchise, opens their latest location in Kelowna marking the third franchise in British Columbia.
Men In Kilts Kelowna opens for business Friday August 15th, 2014 and will be the eleventh location to open since franchising began in 2010 and the third in the province of BC. The franchise will service the communities of Kelowna, Westbank, Vernon, Penticton, Osoyoos, Summerland, Grand Forks and Oliver. They are set to offer Window Cleaning, Gutter Cleaning, Siding Cleaning, Pressure Washing and Snow Removal services to residential and commercial customers.
Franchise Owners Gareth Rider and Stacey Steele transitioned into the window cleaning business after spotting their very first tartan truck. Gareth says, “Throughout our research into franchises, Men In Kilts kept showing up in our searches. We read a lot of reviews about the franchising opportunities in various publications across North America. We started to see their trucks driving around town all the time and one day while we were on site painting a client’s house, I looked out the window and saw Men In Kilts next door cleaning out the gutters – the decision was made!”
Gareth and Stacey, now kilted technicians themselves, used to run their own painting company in Calgary, AB, but wanted a change – which included a move to BC – and starting a Men In Kilts franchise allowed them to do that.
Stacey says, “Growing our painting business in Calgary came with many hurdles and growing pains. A major one being our marketing and branding needed an overhaul. Men In Kilts provides us with the support we really needed in the areas we were facing troubles with in our previous business; investing in this franchise has been the best thing we’ve done to date!”
