New Philadelphia – A family-owned business since 1970, Shoup’s Cleaning Co., embraces the theme “one call cleans it all.”

The business is located at 1558 Truss Road SW in New Philadelphia. 

Doug and Kristen Shoup purchased the business in 2020 from Doyle Shoup and officially took over ownership in January 2021. 

Doyle Shoup founded the business over 50 years ago. In 1970, he operated the business out of his house. At first it was a side business, as he was doing cleaning at what is now Cleveland Clinic Union Hospital.

Doyle was looking to expand the business, so he left his position at the hospital to become his own boss. He then moved the business to a rented garage on the southside of New Philadelphia and then to a building on Crater Avenue. That building burned in 1986 and Shoup almost lost all the equipment and other items. The current location, on Truss Road was constructed in 1987.
