Men In Kilts, the residential and commercial window and exterior cleaning franchise with nearly 50 units, allows franchise owners to find success through business ownership, even with little prior experience in the home services industry. 

Playful and welcoming branding sticks in customers' minds and attracts like-minded franchise owners who want to grow with a company that prioritizes fun, friendliness and unparalleled customer service. And thanks to a home-based, low-overhead and streamlined operational model, franchise owners can quickly achieve a strong return on their investment and build wealth for themselves and their families. 

“Exterior cleaning is an $8 billion industry with high demand,” said Ron Bender, Chief Growth Officer of Threshold Brands. “Especially in markets where owners can provide service year-round, this is a great opportunity for entrepreneurs looking to break into the industry.”

As Men In Kilts focuses development efforts on the areas like the Sunbelt region with intentions to drive year-round services while building additional brand awareness, it is looking for franchise owners who want to be a part of the expansion by building their own business. 

Organic Buzz Attracts Customers

Under normal circumstances, someone looking out their window to see a neighbor getting their windows cleaned probably wouldn’t think twice about it. However, if that window cleaner is wearing a kilt, people might start asking questions. 

This type of organic buzz is part of the reason Men In Kilts has emerged as the brand to watch  in the home maintenance category. The Kilt leads to an unforgettable brand and experience for customers and onlookers alike.

“Having a strong positioning and branding that really resonates with consumers keeps us relevant,” said Bender. “It is not just about cleaning windows — it is about working together with our franchise owners to create extraordinary experiences for our consumers. That is the foundation of growing this brand.”

Low-Cost Investment and Streamlined Model

As a home based business with low overhead and a streamlined operational model, franchise owners can expect relatively low investment costs. With just a small portion going to the brand, the majority will help get the business up-and-running. In total, the minimum investment to open a Men In Kilts franchise ranges from $127,460 - $222,950. 

“To help franchise owners focus on growth, we have intentionally kept startup costs low so we can attract the most qualified franchise owners, even those with lower liquidity,” said Jennifer Faz, Senior Marketing Manager of Men In Kilts. “There are no physical storefronts and relatively minimal labor requirements, both of which keep overhead low.”

The lower investment comes with plenty of benefits. Franchise owners enjoy little to no inventory, free nights and weekends, quick time to ramp-up, multiple revenue streams and low competition. A $38,000 franchise fee also gives new franchise owners access to everything they need to run a successful Men In Kilts territory, including in-depth training, marketing and advertising support to help get their new business off the ground.
