This video is a story about people. Our people. Our family. It’s a story about humans helping other humans, even when no-one is looking. When we take care of our Waste Management family first, they can then take care of the world and all of our constituents – our customers, our communities, our investors and our environment.

While working in China for the Kentucky state government earlier in his career, Morris was shocked by the incredible amount of waste that he saw being produced, and by the lack of an environmentally responsible ways to deal it. Upon his return to the US, he reconnected with Spiegel, whose family had been in the waste and recycling business for more than a century, and questioned if there was a better, more sustainable way to deal with the global waste problem. Together they got to work, Morris maxed out his personal credit cards, and even sold items on eBay to fund initial expenses. They came-up with the name Rubicon, a reference to the idiom “Crossing the Rubicon,” which means to pass a point of no return and refers to Julius Caesar’s army crossing the Rubicon River in 49 BC. With this humble start, but grand ambition, Rubicon was born.

Ted and Doris Isaacson launched SERVPRO in 1967 as a painting business in Sacramento, Calif. With a background in cleaning and restoration, however, Ted and Doris soon transformed the company into a franchisor of cleanup and restoration specialists.
After selling its first Franchise in 1969, SERVPRO continued to grow, acquiring the Bristol-Myers Domesticare Division and its 175 Franchises in 1979.
SERVPRO relocated the corporate headquarters from Sacramento to Gallatin, TN, in 1988 in a strategic move to place itself within 600 miles of 50% of the U.S. population.
At the time of the relocation, the SERVPRO System consisted of 647 Franchises.
SERVPRO Corporate quickly became a key contributor in its community, and in 1991 the Nashville Business Journal named SERVPRO the Small Business of the Year. In the meantime the company continued its impressive growth, selling the 1,000th Franchise in 2000. Learn more about our Awards and Recognition.
In 2005, SERVPRO moved to a 140,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art facility in Gallatin to provide more room for expansion.
More than 1,700 Franchises are operating nationwide, and SERVPRO continues to grow. The need for experienced, trained and professional cleanup and restoration experts is recession resistant, and the growth potential inside of a proven system presents an opportunity for prospective Franchisees.
With a proud history, a successful present and a bright future, SERVPRO will press on toward becoming the premier cleaning and restoration company in the world.
