In the facility maintenance business for 30 years now.

Hi everyone! I' m new to this board and I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone. I've been in the cleaning industry for a little over thirty years now. What started out as a way to pay my way through college turned into a lifelong occupation. I own one facility maintenance company with my wife and co-own another with my sons. Looking back on the last thirty years all I can say is I would not do it any differently. What a great opportunity the cleaning industry provides us to make money. Good luck to all of you and I would encourage anyone looking to get into the industry to just do it. You won't regret it!

Welcome Steve

I see from your website that you are from Memphis. Home of Elvis, right?
I have had the same experience, I started my company as a way to pay for college and after I graduated, there were no jobs so I started my own
You have a great website by the way. I also really like the name "gold key" has a nice ring to it.
