See 50 Years Of Rushing History
Oct. 15th, 1974
Harold Rushing found his future in floor care through a rental service for dust mats and mops.
Harold Rushing decided to act upon his entrepreneurial dreams and began a part-time venture by offering a commercial rental service for dust mats and mops.
The office of the part-time enterprise was started in a bedroom in the Rushing's home. The dust mats were cleaned on the back porch of the house.
A couple of months later the building shown in the picture on Whitten Alley was acquired. Harold Rushing borrowed $300 from a local bank to start his humble enterprise.
He payed $20/mo in rent for the small space that even needed repairing to keep the rain out.
The Rushing family began working nights and weekends cleaning commercial office spaces to make ends meet at home and to keep the new business afloat.
1978 - A facility was purchased for office and warehouse expansion to meet the needs of the floor care chemical business, which grew to three states.
