Project Description

No Streaking Professional Window Washing is a small business that serves the Greater Tampa-St Petersburg area. We are a LGBTQ, Service-Connected Disabled Woman-Veteran-Owned company that was started in 2007. Our staff is 75% Women as well!

Nicole Wylie

I am Nicole & I am the President of No Streaking, one of very few women-owned window cleaning companies in the United States. We provide window cleaning to businesses and homes throughout the area. I started this business from scratch and have built it with my own money and sweat equity. Our goal this year was to expand our staff at our location here in Tampa, but also to begin selling franchises throughout Florida. We currently have one location in Minneapolis, and another one pending here in Florida, plus our 4 Corporate locations here, 3 of which we intend on selling as franchises so that we can focus on franchising. Our target market is other Women & Veterans that are looking to become financially independent by starting their own business that provides a support system. Unfortunately, with the recent COVID crisis, even with restructuring our business to be able to offer some of our services with no risk to our staff or our customers, our business is struggling. This is our busy season, which then takes us into our rainy season, in which business slows a bit. Usually, we use the profits from Spring to see us through the slower summer and back into our busiest season. In 13 years we have never had to lay off an employee. We pay our employees a living wage as well as offer vacation and PTO time off.

This crisis has presented us with a real challenge. The funding we are seeking will help us continue to keep the lights on, help us prepare to hire and train more staff, and also will help market our business and our franchises as we come out of this crisis. I feel that there will be a huge opportunity when this is over, with many people looking for employment and new opportunities, and I feel that I can give people the opportunity to be successful by investing in a No Streaking franchise.

As a thank-you to our backers, with every $1000 that we raise, we will offer new Women Franchisees of No Streaking a $1000 credit, and an additional $1000 credit if they are a Veteran, for a combined $2000 credit. These "Women in Business" credits will be posted on our Franchise website (which is under remodeling), and we will dedicate a page listing each backer as a supporter of the "Women in Business" program. If we raise all of the funds we need, that will be 40 Women that will receive $1000 towards building an exciting new business!

I know window cleaning isn't a sexy business to support, but we do make a lot of people's homes brighter, which makes them happy, especially at this time when they are stuck in home. We hope you will help us continue to make people's days brighter!

I want to thank you for taking the time to learn more about our small business and our goals to continue our growth through franchising.  Stay safe and be well!

The Campaign FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • How long has No Streaking been in business?
    • My wife and I started No Streaking in 2007. For the first few years, we completed all of the work ourselves while we also ran our other business (catering/concessions).
    •  
  • Has No Streaking been a successful business?
    • Definitely. We saw our sales double each year for the first 5 years and then increase by about 60% for the next 5 years after that! The last few years I have been dealing with some health issues, so we've kept everything status quo, but now I'm feeling great and am ready to grow again!
    •  
  • Do you only hire and sell franchises to women and veterans?
    • No, while we do target women and veterans, we offer employment and business opportunities to everyone interested. 
    •  
  • Will No Streaking make it through this COVID crisis?
    • We started No Streaking during the recession in 2007. I am pretty driven so I don't plan on shutting the doors any time soon. We will stay in business, it's just a matter of whether or not we will have to start from scratch again, which will depend on how much financial assistance we obtain.
    •  
  • Do you plan on franchising across the country?
    • Though we are currently focused on franchises throughout Florida, we would consider franchise opportunities anywhere in the United States. Eventually, we would love to have locations everywhere!
    •  
  • What will happen if you don't raise the funds you are looking for?
    • I am not the kind of woman that gives up. Though it would certainly be a struggle, we would pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and start again. I am definitely hoping people will like that they aren't just helping this my business, but will also be helping up to 40 other women get their start in this business as well! I think that is better than a t-shirt personally, but hey, if you want a t-shirt, I can work that out too!
