Marc Bober and Doug Brandenburg started Industrial Steam Cleaning of Atlanta (ISC) in February 2005 in because they wanted to provide restaurant owners with a better way to get their kitchen exhaust systems cleaned.
Marc and Doug were told by restaurant owners that hood cleaners don’t return phone calls; don’t call to schedule hood cleanings; and sometimes when they do schedule cleanings, they don’t show up. In addition, if the kitchen was left a mess or the fan wasn’t working, the restaurant owners may never hear from their hood cleaners again.
Marc and Doug saw this as a unique opportunity to provide quality customer service to commercial kitchen owners across Georgia and ISC of Atlanta grew rapidly by providing unheard of customer service.
In 2013, ISC of Atlanta merged with Premier Grease & Recycling of Athens, Georgia. Premier Grease & Recycling had previously provided grease trap cleaning and grease recycling services to restaurants owners from Athens to Savannah and Jacksonville. With the merger of the two firms, commercial kitchen operators now had only one call to make for all for all of their grease removal and recycling needs.
The freshly minted Premier Grease is proud to count more than 1400 commercial kitchens among our valued clients and operates as the one-stop shop for all grease removal services for owners of commercial kitchens in Georgia, North Florida and the Carolinas.
