Local Business Owners Named Fish Window Cleaning Franchisees of the Year
NEW ORLEANS – During the recent 2019 Fish Window Cleaning Annual Convention, the top franchisees were recognized for their commitment to growing the FISH brand and providing quality service. The awards recognize franchisees who have gone above and beyond the call of duty in the last year. John and Laurie Reinagel, a husband-and-wife team 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. The franchisee(s) must also have been open for at least five years to be eligible for this award. The Reinagels have demonstrated an outstanding work ethic and have proven themselves to be ideal franchisees; as a result, they were this year’s big winners.
“We joined FISH because the business model was a fit for our long-term goals. That and the franchise felt supportive and collaborative! And sure enough, we’ve had a great experience as FISH franchisees. It’s been great getting to serve our community and getting to know other local business owners, as well,” said John Reinagel. “We were surprised and honored to be named Franchisees of the Year. It is a testament to our talented team and all the hard work they put in on a daily basis.”
John and Laurie have been a part of the FISH franchise system for just over five years. John comes from a background of warehouse management while Laurie worked in arts administration and, more recently, stayed home to focus on raising their children. In 2014, the two decided it was time for a change and opened their Fish Window Cleaning franchise location. Since then, the husband-and-wife team has succeeded in growing their location exponentially.
“We are proud to name John and Laurie as our Franchisees of the Year,” says Randy Cross, president of Fish Window Cleaning. “For years now, we have been impressed by their performance. You can tell that they love the FISH brand and are committed to serving customers as well as helping their fellow franchisees. Their selection as this year’s Franchisees of the Year was an easy choice.”
The awards ceremony took place in St. Louis from Thursday, July 25, through Saturday, July 27.
