Customer Spotlight: Greenway Home Services

Published on November 20, 2014

When Whit Greenway lost his job in 1989 because his workplace was sold, rather than viewing it as a setback, he jumped on the opportunity to take his expertise in the home services industry and his desire to provide quality service to start his own company. Little did he know that the misfortune of a lost job would result in the establishment of a home services company with growing locations in Memphis and Nashville. After selling his company in 2000 and retiring, he started it again in 2003 as Greenway Home Services. Whit has enjoyed more than 25 years of watching his companies grow from a one-man operation to a multi-city company with 125 employees and an average of more than 300 service calls per day.
