The Window Gang

Window Gang was founded in 1986 by Tim McCullen (pictured) in the small coastal community of Wrightsville Beach, NC as a part-time summer job. Leaving the coast at the end of the summer to return back to his full-time job in Raleigh, NC Tim continued to clean windows on a part time basis until October 31, 1988 when he found out the family company he was working for had been sold and he no longer had a job. Tim went back to the only job he knew, window cleaning.
By 1996, Window Gang serviced every major city in the state of North Carolina and Tim was faced with either growing into a large corporate entity or franchising the systems he developed to other entrepreneurs. In the summer of 1996, Window Gang opened its first franchise location in Charlotte, NC to Chris Kennedy who was Tim’s Operations Manager in the Raleigh, NC office.Window Gang’s first national awards came in 2000 from Success and Entrepreneur Magazines. Window Gang has been ranked in the top 500 franchises and #1 in our category since 2001.

Today Window Gang’s corporate headquarters is located on the Crystal Coast of North Carolina in the port city of Morehead City and operates in over 20 states in the continental US and some parts of Canada servicing over 150 locations as of to date.
