John The Butler

IBE Barter would like to introduce you to John the Butler, a member of IBE and a local small business for over 25 years. What does John the Butler do? Well, he and his company do many relevant household cleaning procedures such as carpet cleaning, spot removal, pickup, cleanup and drop-off of your oriental carpets, and much more. Locally owned and operated, John the Butler has an excellent reputation for courteous and professional cleaning that is both high quality and labor intensive.

John Smith began his company in 1979 in Key West, Florida. The baton was handed down to son Gary Smith in 1983, and has continued the same quality carpet cleaning as the previous generation. Gary was born in Hartford, Connecticut, and moved to the Sarasota area in 1971. He graduated from Manatee Community College. Gary’s father, John Smith, started John the Butler and in 1983 Gary purchased the company from his father and has been operating locally ever since. Gary has four daughters and three granddaughters and lives in Sarasota with his pound puppy Truman, and kitty, Hoover.

Their company was built by loyal customers and word-of-mouth advertising, and trust was built amongst friends and family that exists today. The Smith family believes that Integrity is the number one requirement in running a successful business. Always do the job 110%, exceed customer satisfaction and give them more value than they expect. The Smith family has a work ethic that exceeds most companies in this day and age.
