Here’s our story

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 faceless window cleaner.

By 2009, the location had grown to over one million in revenue and caught the attention of Tressa Wood, former VP of Operations from 1-800-GOT-JUNK?. Wood joined the team as CEO and began the process of franchising the company.

By 2015, Wood accomplished what she had set out to do. Locations across Canada and the US had opened, systems and processes were streamlined and scalable, and the franchise business was set for growth.

In January 2015, after 23 years running his own multi-million dollar window cleaning company Chris Carrier became Men In Kilts newest CEO and he bleeds tartan and is excited for the opportunity to assist in growing Men In Kilts across North America. Chris has a sharp focus on the support, service and growth of existing franchise locations while providing a strong foundation for new partners to flourish.

Positioned to serve the growing demands of the multi-billion dollar cleaning and building maintenance industry, the Men In Kilts concept is about building a national brand that delivers an unparalleled level of professional service to both the residential and commercial markets.

Men In Kilts has appeared in many publications both print and televised including Entrepreneur Magazine, MSNBC, CNBC, Good Morning America, Fox Business, Franchising Magazine, Good Day Philadelphia, Global National, Breakfast Television, the Boston Business Journal, and many more.
