From the beginning, it has been our desire to build a company that impacts our community.
What we need most are companies that believe in our full potential.
We need companies that believe a person’s past informs who they are, but certainly does not dictate who they are and who they can become.
Our goal is to leverage the market demand for our services and, in the process, alter a shame-driven, punishment-centered, over-victimized and entitled culture into an empathetic, forgiving, interdependent and flourishing culture.
In 2011 a group of investors interested in taking a different approach to addressing a key social issue decided to pull together funding to launch CleanTurn. The goal was to create a for-profit company intentional about leveraging its profit to fund supportive services for its team members and to reinvest in community outreach activities.
To expand our community reach and impact, we launched Third Way Cafe in the Greater Hilltop community. Our cafe sells locally roasted coffee, books by local authors and is a great place for local music, poetry, meetings and board games.
In order to maximize our collective impact in the residential and commercial space we decided to merge our CT Demo and SHAN Cleaning Brands into one allowing us to standardize our operations in preparation for markets outside of Columbus. CleanTurn provides nearly 800 employment opportunities and generates a local economic impact surpassing $20,000,000.
2021 was a pivotal year for CleanTurn as we launched our training program, “The CleanTurn Way.”
In support of our training program we built out a training center!
