About Swisher Hygiene

Swisher Hygiene sweeps away the competition in the corporate world. The company provides commercial cleaning services, equipment, and supplies to more than 50,000 businesses in North America and abroad. Recognized for its restroom cleaning and disinfection services, Swisher also sells soap, cleaning chemicals, and paper products, and it rents facility – more... service items (such as floor mats and mops). The company sells, rents, and maintains commercial dishwashers and other cleaning equipment. Swisher has expertise in serving customers in the foodservice, hospitality, health care, industrial, and retail industries. It boasts a global network of about 80 company-owned operations, 10 franchises, and 10 master licensees.

In a substantial move to expand its operations, in May 2011 Swisher Hygiene acquired ProClean of Arizona, an independent hygiene and chemical provider serving more than 4,000 customers throughout the Southwest. ProClean primarily provides warewashing (method for cleaning dishes, glasses, pots, pans, etc.), general cleaning, and laundry and housekeeping services to the foodservice and hospitality industries. Swisher Hygiene its combining its Southwest operations with ProClean's, a move that will bolster its presence in the markets of Albuquerque, El Paso, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Diego, and Tucson. In a move to expand into the deep South, the company acquired the Mississippi-based Gulf Coast Laundry Services late in the year. Gulf Coast provides linen and uniform rentals and laundry services to the hospitality industry in Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi.

Formerly named CoolBrands International, the company adopted the Swisher Hygiene moniker in late 2010 after combining with cleaning services provider Swisher International, which became a subsidiary. As part of the arrangement, former CoolBrands shareholders own 52% of the entity, and former Swisher International shareholders control the remaining 48%. The combined company is led by Swisher's primary shareholders, Wayne Huizenga (who serves as chairman) and Steve Berrard (who is CEO).

Once a leading maker of ice cream, yogurt, and other frozen treats, CoolBrands had been chilling as a publicly traded shell company since 2007, when it finished disposing of all its operating units. The company's portfolio included such popular brands as Eskimo Pie, Godiva, and Yoplait. It also operated and franchised retail outlets under the banners I Can't Believe It's Yogurt, Tropicana Smoothies, and Yogen Früz. CoolBrands was formerly controlled by the families of former chairmen Michael Serruya and Richard Smith. – less
