“It’s about caring about others. We want our customers to be happy with everything we do. It’s like that for our employees, too. We treat each other like family.”
– Chris Fisher, Founder & CEO, Shine Window Care and Holiday Lighting
This week on Franchise Today co-hosts Stan Friedman and Paul Segreto welcome as their guest, Chris Fisher, Founder & CEO of Shine Window Care and Shine Holiday Lighting. Chris shares how he followed his grandfather’s advice and instead of taking a sales job, he opened a window cleaning business in Austin, Texas. In 2011, he decided to franchise the business and rebranded as Shine Window Care and Holiday Lighting, and two of his longtime employees became his first franchisees. Then his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer; she recovered, but it convinced the couple to hit pause. They handed the business to friends, went to do missionary work in Uganda for two and a half years, then returned to the U.S. (and the business) in 2014.
