General Facility Care
Tampa’s Leading “Home Grown” CBE
Professional Custodial Service Provider
General Facility Care, LLC originally started as a small “Tampa Based” company that primarily served as a subcontractor to larger companies to meet their small account and event labor needs. As a result, GFC has built a substantial pool of “On Call” Labor. Now as a substantial service company in the Bay Area, General Facility Care no longer serves as a subcontractor to any other companies and the original pool of “On Call” labor still remains. In fact, the “On Call” labor pool has nearly doubled in size with many of the original staff now in full time and supervisory positions.

KEY COMPANY STAFF
Prior to assuming his key role with GFC as CEO, Eldis Bujones spent seven (7) years as the Central Gulf Coast of Florida Operations Manager for a Fortune 500 Custodial Service Company. He oversaw the management and staff of over 200 accounts and between 5-10 subcontractors at any given time.
As an American Citizen/Passport holder, Eldis is a seasoned industry operations professional. He has exceptional P&L and people management skills. Bilingual, skilled with MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access and QuickBooks, Eldis brings a superior level of operations expertise to the GFC team. Additionally, Eldis also brings to GFC training programs, quality control systems, purchasing strategies and customer relations programs used by some of the largest custodial service contractors in the country.
“He has a work ethic, level of honesty and concern for employees that seems to have disappeared from today’s larger investor driven corporate C-Suites”.
Eldis had humble beginnings in Havana, Cuba where he had a background in HVAC installation/repair and construction materials management. He spent a few years working for Israel-based ASHTROM GROUP before forming IMEX his own construction materials supply company operating in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Having a family brought him to America where he continues to thrive in the custodial service industry as an integral part of General Facility Care.
Alejandro Gonzalez Rodriguez also had his humble beginnings in Cuba where he started over 20 years ago by maintaining service centers and apartment complexes. Like our CEO Eldis, Alejandro escaped the communist Cuba regime to pursue the American Dream.
Being bilingual in the USA, he quickly assumed supervisory and payroll management rolls in business and expanded his skills to include stone floor care and installation.

“No one will give your account more attention, response or flexibility than GFC. Our employees are our greatest asset and we know how to find, hire and retain the Bay Area’s best.”
John Csehill serves as our contract COO (Chief Operating Officer) and CSO (Chief Sales Officer). He has 40+ years of experience in the contract custodial service industry. He is well known in the industry on a national level and brings GFC his program design, bid / cost preparation, business finance and business management /efficiency skills. He has designed and sold billions of dollars worth service programs over the last four decades and will handle our sales and contracts administration.
“He has built and run $100 million companies as well as run sales for major national contractors. His unmatched knowledge of the industry comes from years of working with business owners. “
Starting in the industry right out of college, John spent his first few years sharing a desk with an aging Janitorial company owner learning everything he could. He was hired to learn, grow and sell the senior entrepreneur’s company which he did after nearly tripling its size in a few short years by dominating business on Florida’s Space Coast with his self written software “What if” programs. Clients could see the effects of specification changes to their budgets instantly for major savings. A client seldom realizes that they can easily reduce their costs by up to 15% by simply having their staff empty their own garbage cans into a designated area trash barrel eliminating the cost of time for a janitor to pick up every trash can nightly regardless of how much trash it contains.
John also brings national relationships with other season industry professionals looking to make career changes. He has relationships with equipment providers, banks, insurance carriers and cutting edge industry providers of smart washroom/dispenser technology, trash containers that self compact and text you when they need emptied, robotic floor equipment, quality control software, GPS employee tracking and much more.
