A Value-Led Culture

Shine is headquarted in Austin, Texas.  It began in 1998 by its founder, Chris Fisher.  He began cleaning windows by himself to support his family.  From the beginning, he wanted to raise the bar with his customer service.  Customers approved and the company began growing quickly with its core offerings of:

  • Window Cleaning
  • Pressure Washing
  • Gutter Cleaning
  • Holiday Lighting

The one-store operation soon had a team of over 20 individuals.  Those individuals became leaders and as the company evolved, Chris learned about franchising.  Shine focussed on helping others and creating opportunities for individuals to become leaders.  Today, Shine has over 40 locations nationwide!

Shine is a value-led franchise company with a vision to create a brighter world.  The mission is to be a light.  The way in which Shine stays on track to it's mission is by adhering tightly to its values of:

  • Serving
  • Excellence
  • Positive Energy
  • Safety
  • Having Fun

By adhering to these values, each Shine location will be a light for their team members, their customers, and their communities.  As more locations pop up around the country, the light gets brighter!

Shine is made up of like-minded, fun, and caring people passionate about helping people grow successful businesses while Shining their light!
