East Ottawa Franchise Opens


Calgary, Alberta (FSCwire) – July 31, 2017 – In Ottawa, we’re painting the town tartan. That’s because the second Men In Kilts franchise is set to open in the city thanks to the entrepreneurial spirit of husband and wife team Tracey and Cameron Calvert. They, along with their large family of seven children, will don their kilts and provide East Ottawa with superior residential and commercial services including: window cleaning, gutter cleaning, house washing, pressure washing, and snow removal in the winter months.

“Orleans, and Eastern Communities in Ottawa can now look forward to the cheeky and quality service experience, that Men In Kilts brings to the world of window washing and building maintenance,” said Tracey who, along with her husband bring 20 years of service industry experience and ran a successful wildlife control franchise for the past 10 years. She also used to train teams for new restaurants and served as Food Services Director with a nation-wide company.

“When it comes to running a business, we know what to bring to the table,” says Cameron, pointing to his own restaurant experience. He was, after all, Ottawa’s youngest executive chef when he was 22 years old. “The recipe for success is customer service. If you give the customer a wonderful experience, they will come to you again and again.”

The Calvert’s knows their kilted technicians will bring smiles Ottawa’s Eastern communities. “When Men In Kilts Ottawa launched in May of 2016, the Calvert’s knew that it was the best time to transition from their previous franchise to be part of North America’s most awesome window cleaning clan,” said Men In Kilts CEO Chris Carrier adding that the Calvert’s 16-year-old daughter already participated in the franchise’s Gathering of the Clans annual conference. “What I like most about the Calvert’s is their attention to detail and their hope of building something in which their whole family can participate.”

“A family run business is a perfect fit for them. We know they are going to be a huge success,” Chris adds.

“We’ve been following the growth of the Men In Kilts franchise for the past five years and now we’re excited to be a part of the success story,” says Cameron. “We’re particularly pleased to bring our family’s work ethic to a franchise that will provide us with support, leadership, connections and a sense of being welcomed and valued.”

With over 28 locations across North America, the Men In Kilts’ proven and unique brand, reputation for customer service, and excellent franchise support is attracting entrepreneurs, like the Calvert’s, into a growing clan of business owners who are realizing their dreams through the power of the kilt. This company mission of “bringing smiles to the world… one kilt at a time” represents the lasting impression when customers experience quality service backed by the Clean Guarantee and provided by green kilt-wearing technicians on ladders… especially on windy days.

Men In Kilts was started in 2002 by Nicholas Brand, the son of a Scottish immigrant, who fashioned a hand-sewn kilt and put a visual to the otherwise bland window cleaning industry. By 2009, the company had grown to over one million in annual revenue. In January 2015, after 23 years running his own multi-million-dollar window cleaning company, Chris Carrier became Men In Kilts’ newest CEO. He bleeds tartan. He’s good with a squeegee. And he’s excited for the opportunity to assist in growing Men In Kilts across North America. Men In Kilts continues to grow and to bring smiles to the world… one kilt at a time.
