Before purchasing a Window Genie franchise, Krista worked for her brother-in-law’s promotional products company as an office manager. When her husband Brad lost his job due to downsizing, the couple was determined to make a change. They turned to franchising as a means to control their success, be their own bosses and create a better work-life balance for their young family.
Working with a franchise coach, the Flecks were presented with a couple of service-oriented businesses that best fit their strengths, weaknesses, goals and interests. While Brad was able to secure a job during their search, Krista went forth with their aspirations to become business owners. Their plan has Brad joining the business full-time in year two. Window Genie stood out to the Flecks for the potential to scale quickly with little overhead; Krista will run the business from home.
Window Genie’s variety of services appeal to home and small business owners looking to maintain the look and value of their properties. Providing a need to their community while providing for their family is a fulfilling and motivating factor, Krista says. “I’m a born and raised Denver girl,” Krista said. “Brad and I raised our family in Castle Rock, and our families all live nearby, so it was never an option to relocate for a job. Castle Rock may be growing, but there’s still a strong small town feel. We’re excited to get plugged in like never before and build this business to serve the community we love.”
