Local Man Follows Gut, Opens Window Genie Franchise in Clifton Park

From corporate America to small business ownership, Joe Consolo leaves CVS after 30 years to open his own Window Genie franchise in Clifton Park.

Clifton Park, NY (PRWEB) June 06, 2015 - Window Genie announces the grand opening of its newest location in Clifton Park on June 15th. Local resident Joe Consolo is the owner/operator. 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 will service the Albany communities including Clifton Park up through Malta and Saratoga Springs.

Before purchasing a Window Genie franchise, Consolo worked for CVS Health, formerly CVS Caremark for 30 years, working as both a store manager and district manager covering the Albany and West Chester NY markets. He said, “Growing up, my father was a builder and owned his own business. Business ownership had always been in the back of my mind, but CVS was good to me. Not everyone loves their job, but I did for many years. I think I was just ready both mentally and financially to tackle this dream of being my own boss. I’m under ten years away from retirement, now is my time to build something for myself that can do some good in the community.”

While conducting his own research and exploring business opportunities, Consolo said as an avid reader of Money Magazine, he came across an article in the fall of 2014 titled, “13 Things to do with $100,000 Now,” that featured a list of investments and purchases recommended by experts in various fields, including franchising. The CEO of Franchise Business Review, Eric Stites, suggested buying a franchise, specifically calling out Window Genie as an example.

Consolo said, “It was one of those gut feelings, something about Window Genie stood out from day one. Of course I looked into other opportunities, but not a single red flag was raised about Window Genie. Yes on paper it looked great with a 20 year old proven business model and multiple revenue streams through multiple services, but talking with the people at the corporate office and the existing franchise partners around the country, I was just able to really see myself doing this. I’ve lived in the northern Albany area for over 35 years so it excited me to imagine running a service business where I could not only create jobs but interact with different home and business owners every day, bringing useful and meaningful services to improve the look and value of their properties.”

Window Genie of Clifton Park officially opens on June 15th. For more information or a free estimate, contact owner Joe Consolo at jconsolo@windowgenie.com or by calling 518-795-5992.
