Friends and family from near and far joined Cleangreen staff in celebrating an important milestone in our company’s history – 10 years in business.
That celebration was held in the beginning of this month with nearly 60 people enjoying a sunset boat trip aboard Hy-Line Cruises in Hyannis. “It was a great reminder that we are so fortunate to not only work on Cape Cod, but live here,” said our CEO Jitka Borowick.
In 2008, Jitka started Cleangreen as a one-person enterprise. As she terms it, Jitka was a solopreneur, cleaning, selling, and managing on her own. She focused not only on quality, but on a commitment to utilizing eco-friendly products that minimize our impact on the environment.
Slowly and steadily, Jitka grew Cleangreen into a company that now employs 16 people year-round as well as seasonal staff during the summer months. With a dedicated staff committed to Cleangreen’s ideals, Jitka was able to achieve additional goals that have included hiring an operations manager, having our own company cars, and operating out of our own office in Barnstable. “Best of all is we’ve developed a reputation as a company that truly cares about our customers and our community,” said Jitka.
For five straight years, from 2012 to 2016, Cleangreen has earned Best of Cape Cod status from Cape Cod Magazine. Jitka has also been recognized for her work; in 2016, Cape Cod SCORE named her it Small Business Owner of the Year.
Last month’s sunset cruise was less about awards and more about coming together for a fun, joyous event to commemorate 10 years of hard work, dedication, and passion that has ultimately led to Cleangreen’s success. “Ten years ago, I never would have imagined that Cleangreen would be where we are at right now,” said Jitka. “None of this would be possible without the great team I have surrounding me, as well as a belief in the services we offer to our customers on Cape Cod. I’m eager to see what the next 10 years brings.”
Throughout the rest of the year, we will continue to celebrate our 10-year anniversary on Cape Cod.
