Paul and Brenda Davis own the Office Pride of York-Stewartstown franchise, fulfilling a dream that Paul Davis has had since college.
Following high school, Paul Davis joined the U.S. Air Force and served as a firefighter for five years. After his honorable discharge, he attended college in Lakeland, Fla., while working as a janitor at night.
Paul Davis earned his bachelor’s degree in computer science from the University of Phoenix. He worked in the IT field for the next 20 years. He says his roles as a technician, programmer and manager gave him the technical and leadership skills he needed to run his own business. “During my college days, I dreamed of starting a janitorial business, but I never really pursued that,” he says. “My recent work in the IT field provided the means for me to pursue my dream, and Office Pride is the fruition of that dream.”
Brenda Davis has been an American Sign Language interpreter for nearly 20 years and is skilled at building relationships. Along with managing her family’s household, she oversees all of the finances at Office Pride of York-Stewartstown.
The couple loves to serve and be involved in their community. They are house church facilitators for Grace Fellowship Church of Shrewsbury, where Paul Davis is on the leadership team of the Band of Brothers ministries. He is also a member of the York Chamber Economic Alliance.
Paul and Brenda Davis saw opening an Office Pride Commercial Cleaning Services as the perfect opportunity to combine their faith life along with their personal business goals. They appreciate Office Pride’s consistent, shared set of core values. Paul Davis hopes to create a thriving business that spreads by amazing customer service and exceptional work quality. His business philosophy is primarily one of servant leadership. “My goal is to ask questions to meet needs, not to pitch products,” he says.
