Local man Ryan Bates returns to business ownership, will open a Window Genie franchise serving the greater Sarasota area.
Sarasota, FL (PRWEB)
Window Genie announces the grand opening of its newest location in Sarasota. Ryan Bates is the owner. Window Genie is a national home service franchise specializing in residential and light commercial window cleaning, window tinting, pressure washing, gutter cleaning and more. Window Genie of Sarasota will service home and small business owners throughout Sarasota, Longboat Key, Bradenton and the surrounding areas.
Before purchasing a Window Genie franchise, Bates worked in construction for over 20 years; more recently as the owner of a construction company in Breckenridge, CO. After selling that business a few years ago, he moved to Florida to be closer to family while pursuing a degree in Finance. During that time, he took a job as a Limo Driver. Bates said, “I enjoyed driving because while it was a temporary gig to get me through school, it gave me a sense of independence, which is what I loved about being a business owner in Colorado. I’ve been looking forward to getting back to being my own boss, where I’m in control of the decisions that impact my success.”
Bates weeded through the many opportunities in franchising while working with a broker from FranNet, a franchise consulting firm. Together they determined that Window Genie would best fit Bates’ strengths, weaknesses, goals and interests. Bates said, “Franchising made sense for me because I know business owners wear many hats, and that can really slow you down. Rather than going it alone, I can ramp up and meet my goals quicker with the help of a proven system and experienced support team at the corporate office.”
Window Genie of Sarasota officially opened for business on July 17th. For more information, or a free estimate, contact owner Ryan Bates directly at email@example.com or by calling 941-870-4900.

Motivated by the instability of corporate America, Bill Peisker pursued his dream of business ownership. He opens his own Window Genie franchise in Waxhaw on May 30th.
Window Genie announces the grand opening of its newest location in the south Charlotte area on May 30th. Local man Bill Peisker is the owner. Window Genie is a national home service franchise specializing in residential and light commercial window cleaning, window tinting, pressure washing, gutter cleaning and more. Window Genie of Waxhaw will serve the southwestern communities of Charlotte into South Carolina including Rock Hill, Fort Mill and Lancaster.
Before purchasing a Window Genie franchise, Peisker spent most of his career in sales and as a business analyst for a large corporation. He said, “I never felt completely safe or secure in my job, and that fear became a reality when the company I worked for was bought and my department was eliminated.” After bouncing around to several jobs over the past few years, Peisker decided to take control of his own success and actively pursue a dream he had kept on the backburner; to own his own business.
“I’ve been thinking about it, doing my research, but until now I wasn’t ready to take the leap into business ownership,” Peisker said. After deciding what he wanted out of ownership, including freedom, fulfillment and a better work-life balance, Peisker said Window Genie rose to the top among the many franchises he’d been researching. There are currently three other Window Genie franchises operating in the Charlotte area; in Lake Norman, Concord, and Matthews. Bill said, “Seeing how successful this business has been for these guys, I felt confident that the demand was there, and that with the support of the franchisor, I could really make this happen. I’m not scared of hard work, and when you’re working for yourself, it feels a lot better than working nights or weekends for a boss at a big company. I am my own boss, I am the one reaping the benefits of my hard work, and while I know it won’t be easy, it’ll be worth it.”
Window Genie of Waxhaw officially opened for business on May 30th. All field technicians are fully trained, insured, bonded and have passed a background check. For more information, or a free estimate, contact owner Bill Peisker at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 704-240-1468.

Corey Witt brings window cleaning, window tinting, pressure washing, gutter cleaning and more to his hometown of Waco. Dwyer Group®’s newest brand Window Genie will open on May 8th.
Window Genie announces the grand opening of its newest location in Waco Texas on May 8th. Local Waco resident Corey Witt will be the owner/operator. Window Genie was acquired by Waco-based Dwyer Group® in late 2016, making it the franchise giant’s newest home service and maintenance brand. Window Genie is a national home service franchise specializing in residential and light commercial window cleaning, window tinting, pressure washing, gutter cleaning and more. Window Genie of Waco will service the communities west of Waco from Valley Mills, to China Spring down through Hewitt and Lorena.
Before purchasing his Window Genie franchise, Witt spent 10 years as an independent distributor for a major local bread company. “My days started at 3 a.m. and occasionally I wouldn’t be home until after 6 p.m.,” Witt explained of his unorthodox and sometimes demanding schedule. “It’s unfair to my family to continue with this lifestyle,” he said. “We have an 18-month-old and two older kids into sports. I’m only able to help my wife get the kids to school and daycare on Thursdays, and I’ve been missing ball games at night. Being my own boss is something I love, so I’m not done being a business owner, but I needed to find a better way.”
Witt was familiar with the home service franchise industry through his mother who works for Dwyer Group®, the holding company of 15 franchise businesses including Window Genie, Molly Maid, Glass Doctor, Mr. Handyman, Mr. Rooter and more. When Dwyer Group acquired Window Genie in late 2016, Witt was intrigued by the potential for multiple streams of revenue through the multiple services Window Genie offered. “The Waco market is well accustomed to high quality home service through the other brands’ presence, so the addition of Window Genie excited me and I saw serious potential to penetrate the market and join the other Dwyer Brands in the area.”
Witt is excited to experience business ownership in a new capacity. “Window Genie’s services are typically scheduled during the week, between 8 a.m and 5 p.m. That alone will change my life drastically. Of course, there will be plenty of work to do behind the scenes in the office, and I’ll still be looking at 50-60-hour work weeks, but having the ability to work from home and see my family regularly will be the most rewarding part of it all.”
Window Genie of Waco officially opens for business on May 8th. All field technicians are fully trained, insured and have passed a background check. For more information, or a free estimate, contact owner Corey Witt at email@example.com or by calling 254-300-2552.
