Company Founded by Jay Vonachen

Lifelong Peoria resident and entrepreneur, Jay Vonachen, got his start in the business world long before he opened his first cleaning service. As a young boy, he used to sweep the floors and empty the wastebaskets of his father’s sales business. He didn’t realize it at the time, but those early days would eventually lead Jay to pursue a lifelong career helping other companies look and perform their best. Jay founded Vonachen Group as a family-owned janitorial service company in 1968. Over the years, it has grown into a full-service facility maintenance leader that provides janitorial services, healthcare services, logistics and special services for a wide range of clients throughout Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Mississippi, Nebraska and Tennessee.
