Fish Window Cleaning® Named 2011 Military Friendly Franchise
St. Louis, Mo., — St. Louis company, Fish Window Cleaning®, has again been named a Military Friendly Franchise by GI Jobs, a magazine published for veterans.
According to GI Jobs, the list “honors the top 7 percent of franchises doing the most to recruit America’s veterans as franchisees.” The list is designed to help veterans learn which franchises give them the best financial incentives and training, and which franchises have the highest number of veteran franchisees.
The list was compiled through research by G.I. Jobs in which thousands of franchises nationwide were profiled, and weighted criteria were used to determine the final selection.
Commenting on the process, Sean Collins, General Manager for G.I. Jobs, said, “Military Veterans can execute a plan, lead employees, and are trained to overcome adversity. Combine this background and work ethic with an established franchise system, and you have greatly increased the odds of the business succeeding.”

It is the country’s largest window cleaning company. The organization ranks 139th on Entrepreneur Magazine’s 2011 Franchise 500, 61st on the AllBusiness AllStars Franchise 300, and is listed on the 2010 Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing businesses.
