Our Window Cleaning Story
If in 1994, you were to tell Jack Ruegsegger that in ten years, he would have a successful business cleaning windows, he would have probably told you that you were nuts. You see, back in 1994, Jack was just beginning college as a biology major with hopes of following his father’s footsteps and becoming a physician. As is often the case, the path we set out on isn’t always the one that delivers us to our calling. For Jack, it was this unexpected journey into the world of window washing that made all the difference.
After finishing college, Jack found that his plan of becoming a physician was not meant to be and began working as a stockbroker in training. Finding that this was a tough row to hoe, Jack began washing windows on the weekend to supplement his income. Cleaning windows was proving to be more rewarding than trading stocks for a living, so Jack quit his job and dedicated himself fully to the service of washing windows.
In 1999, Jack started a window cleaning business with his brother Joe. They began by visiting with homeowners in neighboring areas and passing out brochures detailing their window cleaning services. By making a personal connection with homeowners, Jack and Joe were welcomed as the neighborhood window cleaners.
At the same time, Joe was pursuing a college degree in business. So, between classes and studying, Joe became Jack’s partner. The matter of naming the company proved to be a predetermined task: Jack & Joe’s Window Cleaning, Inc. was the obvious choice!
In 2002, after graduating from college, Joe directed his efforts entirely on the goal of servicing the growing client base. With Joe’s assistance, the business grew rapidly. Jack and Joe began looking at different ways to grow the business and help smooth the seasonality of window washing in Minnesota. As a result, snow-plowing, gutter cleaning, pressure washing, and servicing the window cleaning needs of local builders became part of the package. Jack and Joe’s Window Cleaning was growing into something that was well beyond Jack’s dreams in 1999. By this time, Jack & Joe’s Window Cleaning was reaching neighborhoods throughout the entire Twin Cities metro area.
As Jack and Joe continued to nurture, grow, and expand their window washing business, they decided to change the name to meet increasing interest, support expansion, and develop a national brand. What had begun as Jack & Joe’s Window Cleaning became Squeegee Squad.
As pioneers in the window cleaning business, Squeegee Squad had played an integral role in offering professional window cleaning services beyond the Twin Cities metro area. After building a strong reputation over the years, Jack & Joe’s Franchising, Inc. now enlists the help of franchise partners to expand on this success, while maintaining the strong reputation for which Squeegee Squad is well known and trusted.
In 2007, Squeegee Squad expanded into the high rise window cleaning niche. With the help and expertise of Steve Crank, general manager, Squeegee Squad has become a prominent commercial/high-rise window cleaning company in the Twin Cities market as well as other franchisee owner markets. By spring 2013, Squeegee Squad has successfully grown to over 30 locations in 16 states and four countries.
Squeegee Squad Expanded to Building Restoration
In 2015 Squeegee Squad Corporate began expansion into the building restoration specialty services of caulking/waterproofing, glass restoration and elastomeric coating of buildings. General manager of the Squeegee Squad building restoration corporate crew has pioneered this new division and helps support franchise owners get into this large volume, high-profit margin specialty niche.
