1-800-SWEEPER Welcomes New Partner Clean Sweep, Inc. of Tennessee


1-800-SWEEPER is proud to announce another new partner, Pete Phillips of Clean Sweep, Inc., of Chattanooga, TN.  Founded in 1984, Pete’s company is a second generation, family owned and operated business whose origin’s lie in his mother’s inability to find a reliable, local sweeping service company.  Back in the day, Pete’s mom was working as a property manager, and her frustration over finding a company to help with sweeping prompted Pete’s father to start Clean Sweep.  The local construction boom of the early 90’s saw Clean Sweep cleaning up job sites for nationally known, big box stores such as Target and Best Buy.  According to Phillips, “We went in for the contractors to clean up and never left.”  In fact, Clean Sweep still services many of its original customers the company attracted when it opened its doors back in 1984.  Although the company’s initial book of business was built largely by word of mouth, Phillips has come to appreciate the marketing power of the internet, and he supplements leads generated by search engine optimization and Google Pay-Per-Click advertising with participation in 1-800-SWEEPER.  Pete’s explanation for joining 1-800-SWEEPER is pretty concise and to the point:  “Once I understood the program, I saw the value.  Bottom line, I didn’t want any of my competitors to gain the rights to service my area code.”

In addition to the marketing benefits, Phillips is leveraging his investment in 1-800-SWEEPER membership by securing discounts on supplies too.  “I used to get my brooms through Keystone, but now I used United Rotary because of the member discount….I get a lot of my supplies through 1-800-SWEEPER now.”

Clean Sweep will offer parking lot sweeping and street sweeping to Chattanooga, TN (area code 423).  Be sure to welcome Pete and all of the team at Clean Sweep to the 1-800-SWEEPER family!
