Window Hero hopes to enhance the beauty of the north Dallas Metroplex area with new franchise location in Frisco, Texas

2024-02-19T17:43:15-05:00February 19th, 2024|Tags: , , , , , |

Local owners Lilliana Aranda and Chad Taylor will introduce their new business to the community with two local events at a bowling alley and a home show in late February

FRISCO, Texas — Window Hero, a HomeFront Brands franchise specializing in a wide range of exterior cleaning services, announced today it will celebrate the opening of its Frisco, Texas, location with a ceremony at Strikz Entertainment Bowling Alley at 9:30 a.m. on Feb. 22 and an appearance at the Home & Garden Show of Collin County Feb. 23-25 at the Credit Union of Texas Event Center.

Local owners Lilliana Aranda and her business partner and fiancé, Chad Taylor, along with the Frisco Chamber of Commerce will meet with locals for a ribbon cutting at the bowling alley located at 8789 Lebanon Road, Frisco. Aranda and Taylor will also host a booth at Collin County’s home show, where visitors have a chance to win a Yeti cooler and $50 off any of their services to use in March. They will be at Booth T13.

“Owning an exterior cleaning company provides us with the prospect of offering revitalization services to residential and commercial buildings throughout the Frisco and north Texas areas,” Aranda said. “It’s exciting to be able to wash away dirty buildup so that our clients are provided with a fresh perspective. Clean windows not only make a home more attractive, they also increase its resale value. Regular window cleaning prevents damage to panes, sills and frames.”

Aranda understands the benefit of keeping the exterior of a home tidy. She serves as the health, safety and environmental manager for Got Safety LLC, where she is in charge of the company’s occupational health and safety and OSHA compliance standards.

“This position has given me the ability to cultivate safe environments within organizations and ensure the well-being of employees,” Aranda said. “This has given me the keen eye for detail and an ease with the fieldwork I’ll need to run our Window Hero location.”

Aranda and Taylor are both from Hobbs, New Mexico, a small town “where everybody knows everyone else,” she said. The couple came to Texas a little more than eight years ago. During that time, Aranda has pursued her education in health and safety by receiving a certification from the University of Texas at Arlington. She said she is still struck by the beauty of the Frisco area.

“I’m so excited to be a part of the unfolding Frisco narrative and I am enamored with the area,” Aranda said. “Frisco’s vibrant atmosphere, exceptional educational institutions, diverse community and consistent growth make it a wonderful place to live and raise a family.”

As a former U.S. Army soldier, Taylor is committed to the service of others and enjoys working outdoors. For the past 20 years, he has worked for an oil well service company as the vice president of sales and in operations management.

Taylor has owned other businesses in the past, including a real estate agency, a property management company, an escrow company and a property investment business.

“My duties in the property investment industry encompassed readying buildings for sale,” Taylor said. “That included power washing the exterior and improving the interior with paint and light remodeling. You have to have a great curb appeal if you want to stand out in the market. I understand how important a clean building is in improving the look and feel of a building.”

In addition to working together to build their exterior cleaning service, Aranda and Taylor also have three sons.

“Chad and I are dedicated to adding to the beauty of this area,” Aranda said. “We want our Window Hero location to enhance the vibrancy of the Frisco area. We can tell Frisco is growing area but still has the same values and kind-hearted people that smaller towns have. We’re excited about starting our business here.”

Window Hero specializes in a wide range of exterior cleaning services, including window cleaning, gutter care, pressure washing and solar panel cleaning. The company offers both routine maintenance and one-time deep cleaning solutions.

Window Hero Frisco services several areas in the Midlands, including Frisco, HackberryHebron and The Colony. For more information about Window Hero Frisco, please visit https://windowhero.com/locations/frisco/.

“I fell in love with the outdoors and mountains here,” said Taylor.. “The people in our community are so friendly and willing to help their neighbors. It’s the perfect place to contribute to my neighbors in a positive way while giving me a chance to grow my Window Hero location.”

Window Hero cleans up East Tennessee with its West Knoxville location

2023-12-12T18:37:17-05:00December 12th, 2023|Tags: , , , , , |

Owner Ben Brown gives back to his community by providing free exterior cleaning services to area schools

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — When Ben Brown decided to open his West Knoxville location of Window Hero, a HomeFront Brands franchise specializing in a wide range of exterior cleaning services, his goal to give back to the community was as strong as his desire to own his own business.

In the eight months that Window Hero West Knoxville has been in operation, Brown has been able to make a splash in the community by cleaning the exteriors of five schools in the community with the goal of revitalizing and enhancing the appearance of these schools’ campuses.

A.L. Lotts Elementary School, Cedar Bluff Elementary School, Farragut Primary School, Hardin Valley Elementary School, and Rocky Hill Elementary School all received a full-service cleaning that included pressure washing sidewalks, cleaning windows, and soft washing a specific area of the building. Window Hero West Knoxville also pressure washed the schools’ signs to make them look like new.

The company also cleaned the sidewalks and entryways at Northshore Elementary School, which welcomed Brown as its “Principal for a Day” on Nov. 16. Principal for a Day is a half-day experience that connects business leaders with Knox County Schools’ principals to open the lines of communication between public education and the community.

“Opening a Window Hero complemented my personal goals of giving back to the community that means so much to me,” Brown said. “I always wanted to find ways to impact my community while also building a reputation as a trusted property service provider. My involvement with Window Hero has allowed me to do that.”

Brown said that Window Hero’s founder, Tyler Kirk, and Jeff Dudan, chairman and CEO of Window Hero’s parent company, HomeFront Brands, have provided a strong franchise culture that not only promotes success but also encourages community involvement.

And for Brown, who spent most of his career in software sales and business development, making the change to entrepreneurship was a daunting task made easier by the HomeFront Brands team.

“The HomeFront Brands crew provides franchisees like me the guidance and time needed to be successful,” he said. “The reason why so many mom-and-pop businesses fail is that they don’t understand how to scale their growth. HomeFront Brands and the Window Hero team provide me with the support I need to take this business to the next level.”

Brown received a bachelor’s degree from Middle Tennessee State University and has worked in sales for such companies as Vendisys, Inc., Twenty20 Solutions and DigiCert, Inc.

His service-oriented approach has long been a part of his personality. He and his wife, Brittany, have always been active in their community and are the engaged parents of Cooper, Hutch and Caroline.

Brown coaches several of his son’s sports teams and is active in their church. The family enjoys being outside, playing sports, hiking and biking.

Local owner Ben Brown was feted at HomeFront Brands’ inaugural franchisee convention

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Window Hero West Knoxville owner Ben Brown was awarded the Rookie of the Year for his Window Hero location at the franchise’s parent company’s first franchisee convention earlier this month.

HomeFront Brands, the property service franchise platform with six emerging concepts in its portfolio, hosted its inaugural convention, entitled “Homecoming,” at the company’s headquarters outside of Charlotte, North Carolina earlier this month. The conference brought together franchisees, corporate employees and vendor partners to celebrate HomeFront Brands’ impressive growth since its inception in late 2022.

Brown’s commitment to his community helped him earn his Rookie of the Year Award. In the eight months his location has been open, he has cleaned the exteriors of five schools in his service area. His Window Hero location provided this service for free with the goal of revitalizing the appearance of these schools’ campuses.

“Ben’s dedication to his community and his support for local schools is a shining example of what can be achieved through hard work and determination,” said HomeFront Brands Chairman and CEO Jeff Dudan. “Our Homecoming Convention served as an example of HomeFront Brands’ remarkable growth since our founding in 2022. We owe some of our tremendous success to Ben Brown’s exceptional character and commitment to our core values.”

The Rookie of the Year Award recognizes a newcomer who displays remarkable promise, adaptability and a tireless work ethic despite being in the early stages of their ownership journey. HomeFront Brands bestowed Rookie of the Year awards to a franchise owner of each of its four core brands: Window Hero, The Designery, Top Rail Fence and Temporary Wall Systems.

“I’ve always sought opportunities to give back to my community,” Brown said. “When I opened my Window Hero location, I knew I wanted to establish my company as a source in providing a reliable service to my clients while also helping those in need. It’s an honor to receive this award and I hope to continue to deliver exceptional performance as a HomeFront Brands franchise member.”

Brown’s service-oriented approach has long been a part of his personality. He and his wife, Brittany, have always been active in their community and are the engaged parents of Cooper, Hutch and Caroline. He also coaches several of his sons’ sports teams and is active in the family’s church.
