Longstanding concerns with safety and the high cost of window cleaning led Bill Hardman and partners Ashley Phillips and Clayton Hardman to acquire the master franchise for KTV Working Drone for both Canada and the United States.

Bill Hardman, President of the Hardman Group, said dealing with the high cost of window cleaning in one of their residential projects in Newfoundland resulted in him saying “there has to be a better way!”. As a result, Hardman researched a Norwegian company that offers a proprietary system for cleaning building facades and windows by using drones. 

Hardman and Ashley Phillips, Executive VP of the Hardman Group, spent a week in Norway reviewing the business model and the technology in the operating systems.  “We were so impressed that before leaving Norway, we signed the master franchise agreement for Canada and the United States.”

The KTV system of facade cleaning is revolutionizing the industry and providing an alternative for building owners.  By utilizing the KTV system, this new solution to façade/window cleaning is a game-changer. It’s safe, environmentally friendly, more efficient and cost-effective than traditional methods. The overall market for this service for Canada and the United States is huge. The new companies, KTV Working Drone Canada and KTV Working Drone USA is now operating in Vancouver, Ottawa, Atlantic Canada and in Florida in the US. We are currently selling franchises across North America and will soon be adding more locations in both countries. Franchises are be structured to geographical or population pockets to allow independence and success for each operator. 

Depending upon the size of the territory, franchise fees start at $25,000. Territories with larger population densities have higher franchise fees. The United States will be divided by each state with the exception of California, Florida, Texas and New York. 

Hardman says, “it will be an exciting time growing the new company. Just Google any downtown area and you quickly see that this is an enormous opportunity to improve safety and reduce costs in the property management community.”
