Tartan Window Cleaners Arrive In Calgary
Men In Kilts Calgary is celebrating its grand opening launch and will be cleaning windows in kilts on Stephen Avenue this Saturday, April 21, 2012, from Noon until 2:30 p.m.
Calgary, AB (PRWEB) April 19, 2012 - Men In Kilts Calgary window cleaning is celebrating its grand opening launch by cleaning windows while wearing tartan kilts this Saturday in downtown Calgary. This will be the seventh franchise for the rapidly growing Men In Kilts franchise. All Calgary residents and media members are welcome.
The company, whose professional, trained technicians complete a variety of household chores including window cleaning, gutter cleaning, pressure washing, snow removal, carpet cleaning and blind cleaning, arrives as part of a partnership with another trusted Calgary brand; Window Works. Window Works - who for 20 years has been the preferred Calgary window and exterior cleaning company - is joining forces with Men In Kilts, to become Canada’s largest window cleaning company. Window Works has won numerous Consumer Choice Awards, maintains an A+ BBB rating, and has served almost 50,000 customers.
Chris Carrier, Window Works Founder and CEO, says, “Our amazing team is proud to join forces with Men In Kilts, the enigmatic brand really exemplifies our values of being Honest, Trustworthy and Professional.”
Staff and managers at Calgary-based Window Works are being retained by the company, and new technicians are joining the team as the busy spring and summer seasons draw near.
Carrier is certain that the blend of the two companies, Window Works with a 20 year history of success, and Men In Kilts, with its 10 year history of creating community and media buzz with their engaging kilted uniform, will be a winner with Calgarians. By the end of the year he expects to have a Kilt Crew in Edmonton as well. Adding fuel to the tartan fire is the CEO of Men In Kilts Franchise Services, Tressa Wood, who was a key member of the team that brought 1-800-GOT-JUNK? into hundreds of markets across the globe.
To celebrate their launch, Carrier and his Kilt Crew will be cleaning windows on Stephen Avenue this Saturday, April 21, 2012, from Noon until 2:30 p.m. All Calgary residents and media members are welcome.
