John and Laurie Reinagel from New Orleans were named Franchisees of the Year. The winners were selected based on a wide variety of qualifications, including growth by at least 300 new accounts, quality of customer service, ability to maintain a positive attitude, support of preferred vendor program and generally upholding the Fish Window Cleaning name, brand and overall reputation.
