When Curt Drew opened Fish Window Cleaning in Omaha in 2005, he had one vision in mind: to start something special. He aimed to create a great work environment for his team while providing excellent customer service.
A national franchise, Fish Window Cleaning offers commercial and residential window cleaning year-round. For Drew, hiring the right kind of people has always been more important than experience.
“We focus on finding individuals with a good work ethic who care, and then we teach them how to clean windows,” Drew said. “We build really good relationships with our team members. We have some employees who are with us for 10 years and some who might only be working with us for a few years. In those instances, we help them find their next job.”
While it can sometimes be a challenge to depend on businesses to call back or arrive on time, Drew said that’s never the case at Fish Window Cleaning, where customer service is always the prime focus. Because of this reputation in the community, Drew said the business has gained many referrals over the years.
In 2022, the business was named Franchise of the Year by Fish Window Cleaning, an award that is given to one franchise out of 250 locations across the country.
“It’s really a tribute to our team of people who are doing a great job,” Drew said.
Six years ago, Drew joined EO Nebraska to gain professional and personal development.
“I have had the opportunity to learn from other very successful people,” Drew said. “Two years ago, I became the president of the EO board. While this was out of my comfort zone and it was a challenge to balance the role and being a business owner, it really helped me grow as a leader and it was a really great experience.”
Drew, who also owns Radon Defense Midwest and National Radon Defense, looks forward to the future.
“I am really excited about our people and the growth opportunities for our team members,” Drew said. “I’m also very excited about continuing my involvement with EO.”
