Curtis Drake's Golden Anniversary

November 29, 2010
KINSTON, NC — Curtis Drake has worked in janitorial service for 50 years — and he''s loved every minute of it, according to The Free Press.
Drake Janitorial Service of Kinston, which began with humble beginnings, founded on the back of a then 16-year-old Drake, celebrated its 50th anniversary last week, the article stated.
"When I was 16, I got a job working in the hospital," Drake said.
"They put me in the custodial department and I enjoyed the work so I stuck with it — I never thought it would take me as far as it has," Drake added.
While janitorial work might not be everyone’s cup of tea, Drake said he would not trade his time in the business for anything.
According to the article, Drake Janitorial has nearly 90 employees and does a majority of the cleaning in Craven County.
The company also holds the cleaning contracts for 12 area schools, in addition to several office parks, the article noted.
