    Tartan Window Cleaners Arrive in Philadelphia - November 5, 2012 by admin

    Men In Kilts, Canadian based Franchisor expands to US East Coast

    Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) November 01, 2012

    Local owners, Herb and Kate Madara live in the Abington suburb, fifteen minutes outside of Philadelphia. Before exploring the world of franchising, Herb Madara worked as a high voltage power lineman. After injuring his knee as a lineman, he decided it was time for a change. His research led him to many business opportunities, and he and his wife ultimately decided on a Men In Kilts window and exterior cleaning franchise.

    I wanted to be in business for myself, but not by myself. The team at the Men In Kilts corporate office and all their franchise owners were so supportive during our research. The further I looked into it, the more I realized the huge opportunity in the window cleaning industry and the whole concept of wearing the kilt is just awesome. Everywhere you go, people approach you with a smile on their face. Everyone wants to know what the kilt is all about, and some even want to take pictures with you, says Madara.

    When asked if the crews will still be wearing kilts in the frosty Philly winters, Madara replies, Of course! Well make sure the guys have something warm under their kilts!

    With over 25 years experience serving customers in a wide array of businesses, the Madaras were confident they wanted to work in the service industry within Philadelphia. Weve lived in this area for a long time and we know what kind of service our locals expect, says Kate Madara. Well be doing lots of fun promotions and meet-and-greets to get to know even more people.

    With the Bucks and Montgomery Counties population continuing to grow and prosper, the Madaras see tremendous potential for Men In Kilts in their area. Were determined and committed to delivering a fantastic experience and putting smiles in to the world one Kilt at a time. Just remember No Peeking! says Herb.

    About Men In Kilts

    Men In Kilts was started in 2002 by Nicholas Brand with $500, a squeegee and a hand-sewn kilt. The first franchise was opened in 2010 in Vancouver, with Fraser Valley and Seattle soon to follow. Calgary and Victoria were the first franchises for 2012, with New Jersey, Toronto and Edmonton scheduled to open shortly. The company expects a 300 percent increase in revenue in 2012.

    Spider-Man window washers cheer hospitalized kids - October 23, 2012 by admin

    Some superheroes do truly super things, like surprise sick children with a friendly rappel down the side of their hospital building.

    Spider-Man, suited up and headed down the side of Le Bonheur Children's Hospital in Memphis.

    Kids at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital in Memphis got a Spidey-size surprise last week when they spotted none other than Spider-Man rappelling down the side of the building, with Captain America in hot pursuit.

    The superhero sighting came courtesy of a few real-life superheroes -- employees of the commercial window cleaning company American National Skyline who wanted to do something nice for the young patients. Rosetta Ford, an administrative assistant in the hospital's environmental-services department, suggested costumes, so Steve Oszaniec, his son Danny Oszaniec, and Jordan Emerson suited up superhero-style, secured themselves in their window-washing safety harnesses, and started their slide down the 12-story building.

    The building's large windows overlook the downtown Memphis skyline and Mississippi River, giving the superheroes a scenic backdrop. As word got around the hospital of an out-of-the-ordinary happening, the kids flocked to windows in their rooms and the family rooms on each floor.

    As you can see from this vid provided by the hospital, many patients captured the moment with smartphones (a good idea, since last time I told people I saw Spider-Man scaling a building on a Wednesday afternoon, they didn't believe me). And for a real awww, have a look at this closeup NBC News photo of a Le Bonheur patient-Spidey moment. It really says it all.

    Some Memphis residents probably looked up and wondered why own their window washers suddenly seemed so ordinary.

    Cleaning up Kalamazoo: Volunteers, government agencies team up to rid streets of trash (with video) - October 23, 2012 by admin

    KALAMAZOO, MI In an effort to make neighborhoods in Kalamazoo a more attractive place to live and bring pride of ownership to homeowners, volunteers and police officers spent two days picking up more than 100 bags of litter and other trash.

    Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety Community Police Officer Fidel Mireles said people in the neighborhoods are appreciative of the cleanup efforts, and some have come out to thank the volunteers. The cleanup also has a positive effect on people that don't live in the area, he said.

    "It's the whole broken window theory," he said. "If people from out of town come and see a bunch of trash on the ground, they'll think it isn't a clean and safe neighborhood."

    This marks the fourth year the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety, the Kalamazoo Public Services Department and the Community Planning and Development Department have worked together to focus on quality of life issues to help improve specific neighborhoods as part of the Community Policing philosophy.

    Volunteers from the Kalamazoo Probation Enhancement Program and members of the KPS C.O.P.S. Division hit the streets for two days.

    Mireles said volunteers picked up around 70 trash bags full of garbage in the Edison Neighborhood on Monday and filled around 50 trash bags on Tuesday near Westnedge Avenue and North Street. They also picked tires and other items from vacant lots.

    Brock Beilby, 22, of Allegan, said from picking up glass to make the sidewalks safe for kids, to hearing people yell thank you from their windows, the cleanup was a positive experience for him.

    "It makes me feel good that I'm helping to clean up the neighborhood," he said. "Next time I finish a bag of chips or something, I'm going to think about this before I litter."

    Rhea Burnett, 27, has lived in Kalamazoo her whole life and said she was happy to help both days.

    "Somebody needs to do it," she said. "We did something good for somebody by cleaning up the neighborhood."

    Superheroes wash windows at Pa. hospital - October 23, 2012 by admin

    Published: Oct. 23, 2012 at 3:48 PM

    PITTSBURGH, Oct. 23 (UPI) -- A Pennsylvania window washing service sent a quartet of workers in superhero costumes to brighten windows and spirits at a children's hospital.

    Edward Matuizek, president of Allegheny Window Cleaning Inc. in Springdale, said the company did not charge the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh for Monday's window-washing by Spider-Man, Batman, Superman and Captain America, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported Tuesday.

    "This isn't about us. This is about them," Matuizek said.

    "It's a nice place to work, but emotionally it's a real tough place to work. You go home and pick your own kids up, and there's a lot of gratitude there," he said of the hospital.

    Matuizek said the scheme was suggested by his wife, who read about a similar stunt at a British hospital, and was given the go-ahead by Children's Hospital facilities director Elizabeth Munsch.

    The costumed window washers were Rick Bollinger, 46, and Mark Errico, 26, both of Harrison; Ed Hetrick, 36, of Springdale; and Jim Zaremba, 43, of Lower Burrell.

    "The kids were loving it," said Errico, who wore the Captain America suit. "Everywhere we went, they were coming in from different rooms."

    Window-Washers Dress as Comic Book Heroes to Surprise Patients at Children’s Hospital - October 23, 2012 by admin

    Celebrities visit hospitals from time to time to cheer up the patients. In fact, they're fond of paying visits to children's hospitals in particular, to lift the spirits of the kids being treated. A fictional kind of celebrity visited a local children's hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, and it has the Web talking.

    Employees of American Skyline, a commercial window-cleaning business, had the ingenious idea of dressing as comic book heroes while doing their jobs at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital. Jordan Emerson, Steve Oszaniec, and Danny Oszaniec dressed as Spider-Man and Captain America, then secured their harnesses and began repelling down the sides of the building as they cleaned the windows.

    As word spread around the hospital, patients and their parents gathered by the windows to watch the superheroes in action. The children and their parents and caregivers had looks of pure delight and big smiles as they snapped photos with their cameras and phones.

    There have been other instances of superheroes showing up to visit kids at hospitals. On Monday, another group of window washers, this time in Pittsburgh, pulled a copycat move. They also dressed as superheroes as they performed their window-washing duties. One of the men spoke on why the workers went out of their way to make the kids smile: "This isn't about us. This is about them." The man said that he would do it again, and it may in fact become an annual event to surprise the patients.

    Last spring, a man dressed as Batman rolled up in an all-black Lamborghini to Maryland-area hospitals to greet the children and lift their spirits. The man became infamous when a picture of him being pulled over and questioned by police while dressed head to toe as Batman went viral. He was revealed to be a Baltimore businessman intent on uplifting the spirits of sick children.
