The other is with a new franchisee David Dragicevich of ServiceMaster Janitorial by Zvon for a Syracuse, N.Y. territory.

Lee and his partners William Watson , Andre' Coleman and Laurence Plummer Sr. currently operate commercial cleaning franchises in Memphis and Nashville with over 400 employees servicing more than 120 customers including some major Fortune 500 corporations.

"We look forward to growing in this territory and upholding the ServiceMaster Clean standard of excellence."
With an expansive background in pharmaceutical sales and marketing industries, David Dragicevich recently opened his first commercial cleaning franchise earlier this year in Syracuse, N.Y.
