Office Pride increases Knoxville presence

KNOXVILLE – In a stale sea of sameness, Office Pride is emerging as an icon of progress in the commercial cleaning industry.

Now, the company’s distinctions are being magnified with today’s announcement that Office Pride has opened a new office serving the greater Knoxville area – Office Pride of Knoxville. Owned and operated locally as a franchise, the new Office Pride location serves the County of Knox.

“There is no question that the demand is there, but more importantly commercial cleaning needs its own scrubbing. Office Pride has been such a difference maker because of the professionalism, honesty and integrity that is inherent in the business,” said Carl Mendelson, a Knoxville resident who runs the business with his wife Erika. “We’re a refreshing experience for businesses. Beginning with our communication and continuing through the services we provide, we excel at being a true partner to our clients.”

The high quality cleaning services that Office Pride offers to its clientele focuses on routine janitorial work, which includes carpet cleaning, window washing, restroom sanitization and more. These services are often conducted in commercial and community spaces ranging from corporate offices to professional medical offices to schools to churches. Office Pride also proudly upholds its commitment to reducing its ecological footprint by using Green Seal™ certified cleaning products with every service.

From maintenance management to insurance sales and even being a retired Navy man, the Mendelson’s have had a unique journey into entrepreneurship with Office Pride. Carl served in the United States Navy for 22 years before becoming a maintenance manager. Erika worked in insurance administration before finding her passion of running a business and drive for entrepreneurship. Together, each brings complementary skills to running their new Office Pride business.

“To be on this path together is a dream come true for us,” added Carl. “We’re excited about what it means for us and the opportunities for employment for others, as well as the difference we can make for local businesses.”

Plus, for the Mendelson’s and the more than 100 franchise locations around the country, Office Pride is more than a superior commercial cleaning business. Unlike any other commercial cleaning franchise, Office Pride bridges entrepreneurship in a profitable business with personal values including honesty, integrity, hard work and a sincere commitment to faith. This rock solid foundation has offered a launching pad for several new initiatives being implemented to foster the brand’s growth.
