Cleaning Company COIT Awards First California Franchise in 25 Years


Mar 11, 2013

San Francisco, CA - Central California is home to a new business: national cleaning company COIT has awarded a franchise that covers the communities of Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo, Santa Maria, and Santa Barbara. COIT is a leading supplier of specialty cleaning and disaster restoration services headquartered in San Francisco, and this is the first time in 25 years that the company has awarded a new California franchise.

"We are especially pleased about the opening of this franchise because franchise opportunities rarely become available in our home state," Bob Kearn, President and CEO of COIT, said. "In this case we were able to match the opportunity with COIT employees who wanted to run their own business, fulfilling one of our company's goals: to facilitate the business dreams of our employees nationwide. It's a win-win for everyone."

The territory covered by the new franchise is bookended by two universities: U.C. Santa Barbara and California State Polytechnic University in San Luis Obispo. It is a population-rich region that has been serviced by previous COIT franchises and that will now have access to the latest COIT products and developments in residential and business cleaning services. COIT Central Coast offers air duct cleaning, which is a popular service in the area, along with carpet cleaning, tile and grout cleaning, drapery and upholstery services, and natural stone care.

The owners of the newest COIT franchise are Tracy Garcia and her husband, Cesar Garcia Mayta. Cesar, who gained extensive experience working for COIT Bay Area, holds a B.S. in Engineering from the Universidad Nacional in Lima, Peru. Tracy holds a degree in advertising from San Jose State University and worked in customer service and marketing at Virgin Airlines for the last five years. Cesar's brother, Carlos Garcia, also is a COIT employee who originally worked for the company in the Bay Area. Carlos has joined Cesar and Tracy in the new effort, and both families have relocated to Santa Barbara.

"It's great to have an opportunity from within the company to branch out and continue COIT's services in a different area," Tracy Garcia said. "COIT has been present in this area for more than 35 years, and we plan to continue our predecessors' good work." The franchise is offering a Grand Opening Special of 40% off all cleaning services through the month of November.
