Window Genie of Greenville Featured in Entrepreneur
We’re excited to share a recent feature in Entrepreneur’s Franchise Players column! Window Genie of Greenville SC owners Chris and Jessi Hendrix were interviewed about their transition from military life to business life – we love having our owners’ journeys showcased because each franchise partner’s road to business ownership is unique!
Window Genie of Greenville opened for business in late March 2015. Both Chris and Jessi are veterans of the U.S. Army. Chris joined the Army two weeks after his high school graduation and served for 22 years before retiring. After Jessi’s military career, she worked in statistics and analysis. Together, the couple decided to go into business for themselves and came to the conclusion that franchising would be the best means to do that. “We’ve known for a while that we were going to be entrepreneurs, but we put a lot of thought into how we’d make that a reality,” said Chris. “With franchising, we found that we would be given the autonomy we sought, while also being backed by a franchisor that had a vested interest in our success. “It was clear that Window Genie provides a solid foundation for the success of its franchisees. The owners, the CEO, Rik Nonelle and the entire staff have been very oriented on our success and shortening the business learning curve.” From serving their country in the Army to serving their new community of Greenville as Window Genie franchise partners… check out this AMAZING story in their local news.
