A Newport Beach man recently joined the country's "largest window cleaning company" in hopes of making the windows in the city shine a little brighter.

Kevin May, an alumni of UC Irvine, has opened a Fish Window Cleaning franchise location in Newport Beach to serve the city, as well as Newport Coast, Corona del Mar, Costa Mesa, Irvine and Tustin.

"I wanted to get into something that would allow me to help local businesses and residents in a tangible way," May said. "If you have a retail store, your windows are the first thing your customers see when they arrive and the last thing they see when they leave."

Fish Window Cleaning started in St. Louis in 1978. Company officials said it is the largest window cleaning franchise in the country with more than 250 locations nationwide. Nathan Merrick, the company's vice-president of franchise development, said he believes May has what it takes to succeed in the business.

“Rather than start from scratch, Kevin has the benefit of owning a business that offers proven methods, training, a nationally recognizable business name, and uniformity,” Merrick explained. “Kevin’s wealth of business experience partnered with his passion and enthusiasm is sure to make his business successful.”

May is currently accepting applications for the Newport Beach Fish Window Cleaning location, and said he is excited to get started.

“Windows are everywhere, and someone has to clean them,” May said. "I know this city has some of the nicest high quality shopping centers, restaurants and homes in the country. We saw an obvious need for the number high-quality window cleaning company in the country to have a local presence to serve them."

Fish Window Cleaning is located at 4500 Campus Dr., Suite 365 in Newport Beach. Stop by for application or to get more information.
