June 24, 2014 // Franchising.com // NORTH WILKESBORO, N.C. - Tammy Whitworth, CEO of Window World®, America's largest replacement window and home remodeling company, is featured in this month's Forbes Magazine in the "Southeast Women Business Leaders" section, on newsstands now.
With nearly 20 years in business, Window World has grown from a small roadside stand into an industry-leading organization with more than 200 locations nationwide. Whitworth has been at the helm as the company not only survived, but thrived through the fenestration industry's tremendous high and subsequent post-tax credit contraction. Today, Window World continues to grow, with an unmatched position as sales leader in the home remodeling world.
When asked about Window World's business model, Whitworth said, "Window World's success is built on family, community and trust. Each franchise is a locally-owned business, and that's important because we want to be part of the communities where we're located. Talk to a Window World owner. Each one has a great deal of pride in what they do, which is reflected in our customer service."
Recently, Window World received the ranking of "Highest in Customer Satisfaction with Windows and Doors" from J.D. Power for the second consecutive year. Additionally, Window World windows have earned the Good Housekeeping Seal for six years in a row, and has ranked No. 1 Window Company in Qualified Remodeler magazine's annual Top 500 for seven consecutive years, as well as No. 1 Replacement Contractor by Remodeling Magazine in its Top 550 rankings for five years. Window World was recognized in the Big 50 Class of 2014 by Remodeling Magazine, distinguishing it as part of a group of remodeling and home improvement contracting companies recognized for their customer service, construction expertise and management innovation and excellence.
Looking to Window World's future, Whitworth is confident where her company is headed: "With the positive momentum that our people and their passion have created, we'll continue to move forward as the industry's leader."
