LOMBARD, IL — Renue Systems, which offers full-service cleaning to the hospitality industry (from carpet cleaning to flood cleanup to hard floor care and more) celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, according to a release.
“It’s hard to imagine what would blossom from a young man teaching himself to clean restaurants and residences in suburban Chicago,” the organization said in the release. Today, Renue Systems is an international franchise with 30 locations across North America, the Middle East, and Europe with preferred vendor partnerships with Marriott, Hilton, Hyatt, Avendra, and others.
The company was formed as Appeal Carpet and Upholstery Cleaners, a general cleaning company, in 1993. In 2010, David Grossman, owner, president, and CEO, came aboard and sought to focus the company exclusively on hotel needs. Now the company operates as a hospitality specialist and has experienced tremendous growth in since its pivot to that focus.
“As a company focused exclusively on helping hotels maintain their appearance at a high level, it’s been fun to solve the hard problems when it comes to cleaning and restoration services,” Grossman said in the release. “We’ve introduced an escalator cleaning process that is best-in-class and developed a unique chandelier cleaning system that is also top notch. We’re constantly working behind the scenes to solve problems for the finest hoteliers in the world.”
Paramount to the success of the company are their franchise partners. Jeff Butler joined Renue Systems as an employee in his twenties, and through passion and perseverance was able to acquire a franchise. “I worked hard, and the support from the Renue home office team was tremendous from day one,” Butler said.
The company stands by its mission: “Making shine the people and places that deeply care about improvement.” The company aims to imbue this motto into all its actions. It says, “The mission statement… is an ode to both literal improvements to making spaces look new again, and figuratively, to franchisees and employees through development and growth initiatives that are a major focus within the company.”
“Our five core values are: Shared endeavor; honesty, integrity and respect; improve continuously by learning; no obstacle is overcome unless it is directly confronted; and effort leads to results. Take the first letter of each and you get SHINE.” notes Grossman.
These core values have led to a commitment of excellence by highly trained technicians on the job sites.
