Window World has seen continued growth over recent years even while other home remodeling companies felt the pressure of a national recession. Earlier this year, Window World was named the number one window company in the United States in the Qualified Remodeler "Top 500" and was ranked the number one replacement contractor nationwide by Remodeling Magazine in its "Remodeling 550" list. In June, the company also earned the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval for the fifth consecutive year.
Tammy Whitworth, Window World chairman and CEO, explained the success of the brand in an interview with Replacement Contractor magazine earlier this year.
"We can't control a lot of things, but we can control our commitment to improving the business model," Whitworth said. "Our locations are locally owned and nationally supported so the owner has the support of a national company when it comes to sales and marketing while running that business in his or her own market."
Window World is currently made up of more than 200 locations nationwide, all of which are locally owned and operated. To learn more about Window World, please visit www.WindowWorld.com or call 1-800 NEXT WINDOW.
