In 2013, while attending university in Montreal, we met while running Student Painting Franchises. Both of us thoroughly enjoyed running our own business and quickly moved up to becoming District Managers, coaching hundreds of students to run their own franchises over the next 4 years.
In year 3, we were tasked with starting a new franchising opportunities, Student Window Cleaning, which has now grown into a multi-million dollar company, teaching hundreds of students per year to run their own small business.
In 2018, we decided that we wanted to start our own company, in a new city that was supportive of new businesses and fostered creativity, which is when we moved to Toronto. In 2019, we started Shine Window and Eaves Cleaning, a business focused on building relationships, provided quality service, and maintaining those standards year after year.
In 2020, after a very successful year at Shine, we opened The Deck People. The goal at The Deck People, was to follow the same guiding principles in exterior painting and staining.
Since 2019, we have grown both brands into becoming Toronto’s premier exterior maintenance company, focused on serving as many customers as we can, while being a small business. We now have 3 managers, who value our customers in the same way that we do.
We are proud to have served Toronto over the past 3 years and will be here for many years to come.
