Akron - Peter Hays, owner of the local Fish Window Cleaning, was named Rising Star at the annual Fish Window Cleaning Convention in St. Louis, Mo. in July.

"It is nice to be recognized for our hard work and dedication," said Hays, a Hudson resident. "I would like to thank our cleaners for the work they put in daily. Our success would not be possible without the strong crew of men and women we have on our staff. Also, a thank you to all of our customers who continue to use our service. We appreciate the award and strive to get better every day."

Hays received the award in recognition of his franchise location's outstanding sales, production, management and good neighbor relations with other franchisees during 2015. This award is given to one franchisee from each district by their district manager.

Hays was also recognized for Top Sales for adding over 500 accounts to his customer base in 2015 and named as a member of the Pinnacle Club for adding $100,000 in production over and above the previous year.

Hays opened his business in 2010, and his office provides service to commercial and residential customers in Chagrin Falls, Hudson, Gates Mills, Akron, Brecksville, Beachwood, Bath, Solon, Stow, Fairlawn, Macedonia, Twinsburg, Mayfield Heights and Kent.
