Coweta couple 0pens Window Genie Franchise in Newnan

Window Genie announces the grand opening of its newest location in Newnan. Chris and Dawn Cummings are the owners. Window Genie is a national home service franchise specializing in residential and light commercial window cleaning, window tinting, pressure washing, gutter cleaning, and more. Window Genie of Newnan will service the surrounding communities including Peachtree City, Fayetteville, Sharpsburg, and Tyrone.

Before purchasing their Window Genie franchise, Chris spent many years in retail, most recently at the Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport managing 18 stores. Dawn spent many years as a stay-at-home mom, homeschooling their two children. As the retail industry continued to weaken, Chris and Dawn began considering a change.

“We’ve had this dream of business ownership for some time, and now that our children are grown, and we have one off to college, we’re ready for a new challenge,” Chris said.
