It was in 1968 that Joe Samuelian first got into the sweeping business, as an adjunct to his daytime lunch truck and nighttime janitorial and maintenance service. He named his new venture, appropriately enough, Joe’s Sweeping, and bought a Wilshire ride-on sweeper to do the work. Joe’s mission statement at the time was “To provide quality sweeping services utilizing the latest state-of-the-art equipment and creating the highest level of customer service available.” Because he truly lived his mission statement, Samuelian was loved by his clients and his company became a success.
