Back to School and Business is Booming

Now that fall is in full swing, kids are back in school and many companies are starting to see a spike in business — Fish Window Cleaning included. In fact, back-to-school season is often considered the second-biggest shopping holiday after Christmas. You may be surprised to learn that the spending spike goes beyond retail — it extends to the service industries as well. Families are switching gears from summer to autumn routines, and of course, the holidays are approaching. The key to riding out this business wave as a franchisee is in preparation and insight into your industry.

New Routines

The leaves are turning colors, the temperature is dropping, and kids are headed back to school. For most families, this transition time means new schedules and new routines. Switching things up from the lazy days of summer to the busier school days can often leave parents with less time to keep the house tidy. It makes sense that Mom and Dad might call in a little help from the professionals for things like tidying around the house, meal-prepping, window cleaning and more. A clean house amidst a chaotic schedule can help ease the transition for families during this busy time.

Holiday Season is Coming

In addition to a new, busier routine, fall means the holidays are coming! Halloween will be here before you know it. In the blink of an eye, Thanksgiving and Christmas will follow. Many families opt to bring in professional cleaning help so they can focus on fun traditions, enjoying the season and spending time with family and friends.

Clean windows can set the tone for the home this holiday season — starting with decorations! Whether you are putting up spooky Halloween window clings or hanging holiday wreaths in the windows, décor will adhere much better to a nice clean window. Not to mention, sparkling clean windows can help welcome friends and family to your home for a festive evening of holiday celebrations.

Clean windows are also important for businesses as well. The holiday season is peak shopping season, so now is the time to shine up your storefront and welcome in busy shoppers. One of the best ways to draw in holiday shoppers is with festive window displays and fun holiday décor. You wouldn’t want dirty, smudged windows to detract from your decorations.
