LAUNCH Graduate Spotlight: Rico Holt

Rico Holt

LAUNCH Graduate, May 2016

Owner, Premium Cleaning and Maintenance Solutions

Greg Spillyards, Rico’s champion and close friend, attended the LAUNCH class with Rico as a Mentor.

 

Rico’s Story:

In February 2016, after graduating from Work Life and Faith & Finances, Rico Holt decided to come through the LAUNCH entrepreneurship class in order to start his own business. Rico had experience and skills in commercial cleaning, and he wanted to learn how to use these skills to help the community, provide for his family, and possibly even employ some of his neighbors. Greg Spillyards, who had been Rico’s Champion when he came through Work Life in 2015, encouraged him to pursue this dream, and even joined the LAUNCH class with Rico as a business mentor.

A year after graduating from LAUNCH, Rico is continuing to take steps forward with his business, Premium Cleaning & Maintenance Solutions. With Greg’s help, he crafted and was approved for his first bid on a commercial property, which he is now cleaning on a weekly basis. He has picked up some additional jobs and is looking to grow even more.

Rico opened a business bank account in January, as PCMS took on new clients.

Recently, we asked Rico about why he started his business:

“I decided to start a business in commercial cleaning because I have always had a passion for hospitality. I took advantage of the opportunity to attend Pontiac Business Institute and graduated a few years ago. This has allowed me to help others in the community, and to provide for my son’s schooling. I have especially enjoyed making a commitment to provide quality service at a high standard, which meets the expectations of my customers.” 

He continued:

“Premium Cleaning & Maintenance Solutions performs interior and exterior cleaning jobs all around Memphis. While we focus on commercial properties, we are willing to take residential clients as well. Our company provides service that is both reliable and affordable, and we place a high value on honesty and ethical behavior. Our customers benefit from our quality and trustworthy service.”

  • Carpet and upholstery cleaning
  • Housekeeping (interior and exterior)
  • (VCT) Resilient tile stripping and waxing floors
  • Storefront, sidewalk, driveway and aluminum siding pressure washing
