In honor of Black History Month, February’s Franchisee Spotlight features the first two Franchise Owners in the Knoxville, Tennessee area, Mr. Eric Glenn, and Mrs. Taquita Green. As Corvus continues to grow into new territories, we embrace diversity as a strength. We believe that, as our workforce becomes more diverse, our Franchisees’ unique experiences and perspectives will drive growth, increase competition, and solve industry-wide problems.

Corvus of Knoxville opened in late 2022, and they were eager to enlist the first Franchise Owners in the market. Mr. Eric Glenn has the distinct honor of being the first Franchise Owner in Knoxville, joining the team just a month after Corvus opened in the area. Mr. Glenn started his Franchise in October of 2022 and picked up his first account at the beginning of 2023. “He patiently waited for a pipeline of customers to be built over the holidays,” says Mr. Jason Bishop, Regional Director for Corvus of Knoxville. “He takes pride in his work and, to quote Michael LeBouef, he knows ‘a satisfied customer is the best business strategy of all’.”

“I’ve been with Corvus for a few months and already have my business going,” says Mr. Glenn. “It’s that simple.” He has more than ten years of janitorial experience.

Mrs. Taquita Green moved from Florida to Knoxville in 2010, and she says it is the best decision she’s ever made. This mother of three, with two daughters (21 & 14) and one son (17), has a varied work history, having worked in childcare for five years, and most recently working two jobs: one as a security officer and the other as a certified nursing assistant.

Jason is happy to have Mrs. Green as the second Franchise Owner in his market. “She is a very ambitious and caring mother who is looking to create possibilities for her family’s future. She has a great attitude about life and this business.”

As a self-described “Jill of All Trades,” she is eager to grow. “In 2021, I started an online cosmetic business. I am very ambitious, resourceful, and I love to learn new skills. I like to write and I have books that I plan to publish in the near future.”

Mrs. Green was introduced to Corvus by a friend, and she saw it as an opportunity to quit working several jobs and go into business for herself.

“At first, I was kind of skeptical about it, so a few months passed by and I asked myself, ‘What am I doing working two jobs?’ I wasn’t getting many sales with my online store and I knew there was something better out there for me, so I decided to learn more about Corvus.”

“Jason made me feel very welcomed and comfortable. He’s a great guy. Overall, the reason why I want to franchise with Corvus is because they make you feel like family, and I want to be able to give my family an opportunity, so they won’t have to struggle like I have.”

“She has a vision for what she wants to accomplish, and I am confident that she will succeed,” said Mr. Bishop. “Corvus of Knoxville is proud to have her as a Franchisee.”

Corvus would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to Mr. Glenn and Mrs. Green for their dedication, hard work, and determination to making lives better. We are proud to partner with business owners like you that make Corvus such a special place, and we are excited to grow our businesses together!
