Deal adds more than 100 franchise units and grows Dwyer Group to $1.4B in system-wide sales.

WACO, Texas - Nov. 14, 2016 // PRNewswire // - The Dwyer Group, Inc., one of the world's largest parent companies of trade service brands, has completed the add-on acquisition of Window Genie, a nationally ranked home service franchise. The deal marks the eighth acquisition for Dwyer Group in the last 27 months and grows the organization to $1.4 billion in system-wide sales. Dwyer Group will now have 14 franchise brands with more than 2,600 franchisees across service brands and a record 600+ employees throughout North America, U.K. and Germany.

"We are very excited to welcome Window Genie to our family of quality service organizations," said Mike Bidwell, president and CEO of Dwyer Group. "This addition delivers both a compelling business opportunity for future franchise prospects as well as a complementary trade that fits our overall portfolio of service brands. Most importantly, we are able to offer a comprehensive residential and commercial service line-up to our customers."

Window Genie offers residential and light commercial window cleaning, window tinting, pressure washing and more. What began as a small window cleaning company in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1994 founded by current CEO, Rik Nonelle, has since grown exponentially with more than 100 franchise units operating in 29 states. Nonelle will assume the role of brand president for Window Genie within the Dwyer Group organization and has ambitious goals to grow the network.

"Joining the Dwyer Group will allow our franchisees to take part in the organization's collective buying power, provide us with deeper support resources and enable us to rapidly expand our footprint," said Nonelle. "We are looking forward to continued success and serving many more customers."
