Edmonton, Alberta (PRWEB) July 18, 2013 - Men In Kilts, Canada’s largest full-service window cleaning, gutter cleaning, siding cleaning, and pressure washing company, will be seen driving its 33-year old fire truck, Wallace, through the streets of Edmonton Friday. Not to clean windows, rescue a cat, or hose down a fire, but to partake in the annual K-Days fair that starts this weekend.
Owners of Men In Kilts Calgary and Edmonton Chris and Robyn Carrier, will lead their kilted team atop Wallace adding some much needed Scottish flair to the K-Days celebrations. They are sure to be heard and spotted a mile away with their Celtic music, kilts, giant Tartan fire truck, and crowd-appealing demeanor.
“We always love participating actively in the community and our kilt crew is a definite hit because so many of our customers and community members have Scottish heritage. Our company and brand is about having fun and bringing smiles to the world…one kilt at a time!” says Chris Carrier. “Our clan in Calgary just volunteered cleaning up the community after the High River floods. It’s nice to help the community out not only with celebrations like the K-Days, but also with serious issues too.”
Men In Kilts Calgary and Edmonton’s Marketing and Communications Specialist Emily Graydon thinks the exposure will be great saying, “It’s a great time of year to really get out and be visible in the community. When people see us, they can’t help but smile, and that makes me really happy! It definitely shows the community what Men In Kilts is all about.”
This is not the first parade of the summer for Men In Kilts. Men In Kilts Victoria participated in a Pride Parade earlier in July, and Men In Kilts Calgary took part in Airdrie’s Canada Day Parade.
So it will definitely be a site to see! Sure, it might be fairly typical to spot people wearing kilts, playing bagpipes, and highland dancing amidst a parade, but riding a huge Tartan fire truck with Men In Kilts who climb ladders is sure to be a showstopper. Let’s hope it’s not breezy!
So keep an eye out Edmonton, this is an event you will not want to miss!
Short interviews are welcome along the route, so don’t be shy! Just remember…No Peeking!
Men In Kilts was started in 2002 by Nicholas Brand, a Vancouver based Scotsman who fashioned a hand-sewn kilt and put a visual to the otherwise faceless window cleaner.
By 2009, the location had grown to over one million in revenue and caught the attention of Tressa Wood, former VP of Operations from 1-800-GOT-JUNK? Tressa joined the team as CEO and began the process of franchising the company. Men In Kilts now has locations across North America and plans to expand to every major metro by 2017.
Positioned to serve the growing demands of the multi-billion dollar cleaning and building maintenance industry, the Men In Kilts concept is about building a national brand that delivers an unparalleled level of professional service to both the residential and commercial markets.
