Cleveland, Ohio is the next city in line to experience the greener kind of clean from Stratus Building Solutions. The nation’s fastest-growing international brand in the facility maintenance franchise industry has entered the Cleveland market by awarding the new Master Franchise to business partners Tom Grassi and Tim Tilton. This marks the second Stratus location in Ohio after Cincinnati.
Dennis Jarrett, CEO of Stratus Building Solutions, said,“Tom and Tim are strong leaders and fine additions to the Stratus Master Team. Tim’s industry experience combined with Tom’s extensive professional history combine to form an unstoppable combination and we are excited to watch them succeed.”

The opening of Stratus of Cleveland is right in line with our projected growth for 2011, marking the fourth newly serviced territory this year.”
