Upper Peninsula Michigan Window Cleaning Territory

Updated: Feb 9, 2021



Marquette, Baraga, and Houghton counties are collectively one of the most remote areas in the lower 48 states, yet the anchor city, Marquette, Michigan supports dozens of national franchises across most lines. Well-known brands like Ace Hardware, Subway, and Edward Jones are thriving in tiny villages like L’Anse, a factory town on the Kewanee Bay, between the City of Marquette and Houghton. L’Anse is one of the last hold outs for working payphones and still relies solely on independent local groceries for staple items. Walmart is 25 miles away. In scouting this idyllic northern paradise to develop a unique Happy Window Cleaning® territory for a franchise, I am reminded that in today’s world we are all connected via the internet to nearly every place else on the globe. Window cleaning, on the other hand, requires human labor so travel time to and from viable prospects is a vital component to the success of a home service franchise. For this reason, the city nestled in the hills overlooking Lake Superior is my choice location to launch a Happy Window Cleaning® franchise in the 906 area code/territories.





There are hundreds of homes just like this one in the new suburbs of Marquette. the area.

People that have homes like this one quickly tire of doing their own windows.


The economy supports all of these building stores and more concurrently.
