JANCOA Janitorial Services, Inc. was founded in 1972 by Tony Miller. As a 19-year-old student at the University of Cincinnati he started the business cleaning local taverns after one of his professors commented on the growing “services” sector, including janitorial services. When his father passed away in 1972, Tony transformed the company to a full-time commercial cleaning in Cincinnati operation, in order to financially support his family. His pioneering efforts not only sustained the Miller family but laid the strong foundation upon which today’s award-winning company stands.
