After seven years spent as a banker, Fish Window Cleaning founder Mike Merrick decided to try his hand at something that mattered. He packed up his business acumen, drew up a plan, designed his own uniforms, and finally opened shop in 1978. With his characteristic hands-on approach he grew the small business from one location into a bustling network of 220 franchises spread across 40 states and one lonely lunar outpost. Today, Mike's foundational principle of pairing residents with thorough, uniformed professionals continues to impress organizations, earning accolades from Entrepreneur magazine and a Torch Award from the Better Business Bureau.
