Local Man Loses Job, Follows Dream of Business Ownership
Dan Diggs will open his Window Genie franchise May 11th servicing Bethesda, Chevy Chase and Potomac
May 01, 2015 // Franchising.com // Bethesda, MD – Window Genie announces the grand opening of its newest location in Bethesda, MD on May 11th. Local resident Dan Diggs is the owner. Window Genie is a national home service franchise specializing in window cleaning, window tinting, pressure washing, gutter cleaning and more. Window Genie of Bethesda will service Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Potomac and surrounding communities.
Before purchasing a Window Genie franchise, Diggs spent over two years working for a home performance business that eventually closed after a partnership with a British company that provided funding ended. His job required him to perform assessments pertaining to quality of life issues in homes; his business worked closely with local utility companies to help fund repairs for families with dangerous mold issues, damaging leaks, temperature issues related to poor insulation and more. Diggs said, “I loved working to improve quality of life through improving the homes in my community. It was a rewarding job.”
After working for many months to drum up business on his own through networking and referrals, Diggs met Stephanie Lewis, Franchise Coach with The Entrepreneur’s Source at his local BNI meeting. “Going it alone just wasn’t working anymore,” Diggs said. “I always dreamt of owning a business but didn’t know where to begin. Stephanie introduced me to a few great opportunities for business ownership that would allow me to use my biggest strengths which I think are networking and customer relations; I love getting out there and interacting with different people and truly earning their trust and earning their business.”
Window Genie was one of those options Lewis presented to Diggs. He said, “Window Genie really stood out above the rest because of the company culture and the potential to be successful while maintaining a truly ideal work-life balance. My biggest frustration before was that I felt I was on my own; with franchising you’re in business for yourself, not by yourself. I am my own boss but I’m joining a team with a great support staff and almost 80 other franchise partners nationwide that I can learn and grow with. Window Genie’s multiple services means there’s something for every home and every budget. I’m confident I can build a loyal customer base that will continue having us back to their homes multiple times a year, every year.”
Window Genie of Bethesda officially opens for business on May 11th and will service the Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Potomac and surrounding communities. Please contact owner Dan Diggs with questions or for a free estimate at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (301) 775-9235
