Moran Joins Window World Advisory Board

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — Fred Moran, owner of six Window World franchise locations in the region, has accepted a position with the advisory council of Window World Inc., based in North Wilksboro, N.C.

Moran joins 11 other Window World franchise owners throughout the United States to work with the corporate team to develop strategies to continue and improve the course of the future of the Window World brand and franchise owners.

“It’s an honor for me to join this group of successful business owners dedicated to the success of our company and service to our customers,” Moran says.

As the Moran group of Window World locations continue to grow in sales, so does the third generation of family to join the business. Early in 2018, Mandi Moran, granddaughter of Fred Moran, came on board as general training and development manager. She joins her brother, Patrick, and father, Pat, along with 51 full time employees who round out the Window World family.

In 2018, the Moran group completed an extensive renovation of Window World of Akron, adding over 2,000 square feet of showroom space and 2,000 square feet of warehouse space.

“This is likely to be the largest showroom of exterior products in northeast Ohio,” says Pat Moran. “We showcase the latest in design and technology trends in windows and doors.” The newly remodeled showroom is easily accessed off of I-76 in Akron.

Nationally, Window World Inc. enjoyed several accolades in 2018, setting the company apart from the competition, Moran says. The company remains the largest exterior remodeler in the country, installing over 15 million replacement windows.

Last June, J.D. Power ranked Window World “Highest in Customer Satisfaction with Window and Patio Door Retailers.” Window World and its local stores support the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital through Window World Cares. Window World is a platinum sponsor to St. Jude, raising more than $9 million for the hospital. The Moran group raised $600,000 for St. Jude through the generosity of the Moran family and their Window World customers.

The Moran family owns Window World locations in Youngstown, Akron, Steubenville, Cleveland, Toledo, Pittsburgh and Wheeling, W.V. The company supplies and installs replacement windows, entry doors and vinyl siding to homeowners. Its home office is at 8070 Southern Blvd. in Boardman.
