Meet The Family
Charlene is the CEO and Co-Founding President of Classic Janitorial Services. While her son and co-founder, Shane Tinker, was serving in the Marines, Charlene established a sustainable foundation for their first venture into the janitorial business, working under a franchise as Tinker Enterprises. In 1998, Charlene co-founded Classic Janitorial Services along with her son Shane.
Shane Tinker is the General Manager and Co-Founder of Classic Janitorial Services. While serving with the US Marines in 1993, Shane began moonlighting for a janitorial franchise to help make ends meet for his growing family. Upon returning home from active duty later that same year, Shane decided to buy his own franchise. Working under a franchise as Tinker Enterprises, Shane and his mother, Charlene, sold their first two accounts in Tulsa and Broken Arrow. For the next 5 years, Shane would grow his franchise into one of the most successful that the company had ever seen, achieving a multitude of rewards and accolades for his exceptional business primarily in the Tulsa metro area.
However, after 5 years in the business, Shane decided he no longer wanted to operate under a franchise. So, with the help of his family, Shane and his Mother founded Classic Janitorial Services. With the mission of providing excellent performance paired with “homemade” customer service, Shane grew his idea into the business we know and love today.
Travis is the youngest of Charlene’s sons, and the little brother to Shane. He began working in the business directly after high school, and has managed all of Classic Janitorial’s floor work for the last 10 years.
Cody is the youngest of Shane’s two sons, and the Assistant General Manager of Classic Janitorial Services. Cody has worked with the company since he took his first steps, stripping his first floor at the age of 7. It is rumored that his first words were “customer satisfaction” but this is disputed by Cody’s mother. He attended Northeastern State University and Tulsa Community College before deciding to take on a larger role in the family business. Cody is Shane’s right-hand man, assisting him in the daily operations of the company.
Ky is the oldest of Shane’s two sons, and the Regional Manager of Classic’s Denver branch. Ky worked under his dad until 2016, when he decided to move to Denver, Colorado to attend college and help expand the family business. Now living in Aurora, Ky manages all of Classic’s Denver metro area accounts, and attends the Colorado Film School.
