Just Simply Clean
Luke Horton and Galadriel Strauser originally met when they had several classes together as students pursuing a degree in business management. Then, in the spring 2008 semester, they both enrolled in Small Business Management with Professor William Gardner, who also happens to be assistant director of CETES. As an assignment for the class, the two partnered to prepare a business plan. Over the summer months, after the class was over, Strauser's mind kept returning to the business plan and the two decided to actually launch Just Simply Clean, an office and construction cleaning company. According to Horton, "After we did all the market research and hard work for the business plan, we realized there was no reason not to really do this." The two credit the guidance and availability of CETES advisors, even outside of regular school hours, for helping them get the business rolling so quickly.
