1-800-SWEEPER Members In The News: TKG Sweeping & Services, LLC.


This month’s issue of North American Sweeper Magazine contains a feature story on The Katz Group. Founded in 2001,  TKG is a complete property maintenance company that services customers in Southeast Wisconsin including Milwaukee, Waukesha, Racine and Kenosha counties, and Northern Illinois.  TKG provides parking lot sweeping and street sweeping as a member of the 1800-SWEEPER service network to area codes 847 (Waukegan, IL) and 262 (Kenosha, WI).   TKG has been a 1-800-SWEEPER member since the initial launch of our website last fall.

Although much of the article describes TKG’s evolution into the diversified property maintenance company it is today, we found Rich Katz’s comments on the benefits of 1-800-SWEEPER of particular interest.  According to Katz,  “We get a lot of calls, probably 3 to 4 per week….So far, we’ve been able to convert about 90 percent of those one time needs into regular clients. In the past couple of months, we’ve probably added 10 clients as a result of 1-800-Sweeper.”  In addition to providing opportunities to quote new business, Katz also mentions the significant savings resulting from vendor partnerships. “On brooms alone, we are saving 30 percent with United Rotary,” says Rich.  To read the rest of North American Sweeper Magazine’s profile of TKG, click here.
