Bishop Clean Care Inc. is a third generation family owned business founded in Albany, GA in 1952. Over the past 50 years, the business has grown and diversified as each generation brought in new ideas and values. What have sustained throughout the years are the quality of the service, the integrity of the business, and professionalism of the workplace.
Lanier Bishop was one of the original owners of Bishop Laundry and Cleaners in Albany, GA. The business grew tremendously during the 1960’s. The company eventually became Bishop Rug and Upholstery Cleaners, spillting off from the dry cleaning portion of the business and concentrating on the rug and upholstery cleaning. In the 70’s, Bishop Rug and Upholstery Cleaners ventured into fire and water damage restoration services and started its first janitorial account. As a result, we became Bishop Clean Care, Inc., developing into a more diversified cleaning company. In the 1980’s, Patti Bishop Savelle, the daughter of Lanier Bishop became sole owner of the company. In the next twenty years, we continued to grow in all three divisions of the business and became a leader in experience and techniques in the industry. Additionally, our janitorial division has grown to comprise over 50% of our production volume.
In 2008, Patti Bishop Savelle’s son and daughter-in-law, Jud and Jenny Savelle, joined the expanding family business as additional management support and with plans to soon become owners and continue the family legacy. Jud and Jenny believe firmly in the quality, integrity, and professionalism that the company was built on. As a new generation of owners, they plan to set standards, promote efficiency, endorse community involvement, pursue new technology and develop employees to continue to build a family company for the future.
