After seven years spent as a banker, Fish Window Cleaning founder Mike Merrick decided to try his hand at something that mattered. He packed up his business acumen, drew up a plan, designed his own uniforms, and finally opened shop in 1978.

Today, Mike's foundational principle of pairing residents with thorough, uniformed professionals continues to impress organizations, earning accolades from Entrepreneur magazine and a Torch Award from the Better Business Bureau.

Joe May Valet began dry-cleaning and laundering fabrics way back in 1936, when the Great Depression forced people to give up their glamorous nudity in favor of clothing. At four locations around Atlanta, trained staffers use their hands and eyes inspect garments, removing stains and driving dirt from the fabric’s furthest nooks and crannies.
