Garcia returns to hometown to open A Cleaner Zone
A former Pawnee Independ-ent School District student took an opportunity to move to Houston, but six years later returned to Kenedy to start his journey toward achieving his dream. In 2011, Matthew Garcia, 21, opened A Cleaner Zone and one year later, it’s growing with no sign of slowing down.
Born in 1991, Garcia grew up in Kenedy and attended Jenkins Elementary School and Pawnee Middle School. A member of the basketball, tennis, and track teams at Pawnee, Garcia made many friends and grew to love the small community he called home. In 2005, Garcia got the opportunity to move to Houston for a better education and a better chance at success.
“I was sad to leave my friends and disappointed that I wouldn’t be able to get to play sports for Kenedy High School, but I knew I had to take the opportunity because many kids from small towns don’t get the chance to move to a big city,” Garcia said.
While living in Houston, Garcia attended Klein High School and lived with his parents, who both own their own business. Watching his parents manage their growing companies sparked Garcia’s dream to one day own his own business. A couple of years after graduating from high school, Garcia moved back to Kenedy and A Cleaner Zone was born.
“People think I’m crazy for going back to Kenedy after living in Houston, but I was confident that the small town of Kenedy would accept me better than a large city,” Garcia said. “The oil boom was also attractive as I knew that would create a lot of opportunities for a growing business.”
One year later, Garcia and A Cleaner Zone are thriving and becoming a household name in the Karnes City area and among county officials, including Karnes County Commissioner Carl Hummel.
“Matt Garcia is an asset to this community,” Hummel said. “He is honest, hardworking, dependable, and not afraid of working hard to achieve his goals.”
As professionals with experience and knowledge, A Cleaner Zone offers the perfect solution for any property preservation, hoarding, minor demolition, or general/deep cleaning needs.
