YOUNGSTOWN – Fred Moran and his son, Pat, were busy working in different home improvement businesses when they saw an ad in a trade magazine and decided to open their first Window World franchise.
The year was 2003. Within a year they opened an office in Pittsburgh. Others soon followed.
Pat’s son, Patrick, joined the business in 2009, his daughter, Mandi, in 2017. So while the business is second generation, members of three generations are involved.
The Moran family owns seven Window World franchises in Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Michigan, and employs more than 50. Each features a showroom where customers can see the products.
The Morans are one of the largest Window World franchisees. The family business sells and installs replacement windows, doors and siding.
