Squeegee Squad Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2024


Squeegee Squad has quickly become an established brand and emerging leader in the window cleaning industry because the business model is:

  1. A low cost initial investment
  2. Recession resistant
  3. A repeat business model
  4. Scalable
  5. Is pandemic resistant

We were just recently ranked in the Entrepreneur Magazine's Franchise 500 because we have created a winning concept that others are using to create similar success in their markets. We currently have over 60 locations in 28 states and in 4 countries (and growing).

Squeegee Squad window cleaning is a "staple service" much like janitorial, lawncare, & snow plowing services. Homeowners and building managers typically will not get on ladders or rappel from the roof to clean their own windows. For example, the original Squeegee Squad in Minneapolis cleans the corporate campus's for Best Buy for $45,000 per time and Boston Scientific for $25,000 per time (and many others) along with countless residential homes averaging between $200 - $1,500 per time.

Squeegee Squad likes to win large contracts all over the country as a means of providing excellent support to our franchisees. THIS IS OUR VALUE PROPOSITION. Our franchisees in month one of their businesses are able to bid on and win the largest contracts in their states with our help, expertise and national references.

Buying a Franchise Guide: What is a Franchise Disclosure Document?

When evaluating a franchise opportunity, reading and understanding the current version of their FDD is a necessity. Considering the benefits of franchising, such as established brand recognition and support from the franchisor, it's important to also take into account franchise fees and franchising royalty fees. Since most franchisors are privately owned companies, the current versions of their FDDs are typically not available unless requested directly from them.
