The Fayette County Chamber of Commerce is welcoming two new businesses to the Washington CH area.

New business owner Stephanie Summers and her company, Freedom Insurance and Services, were welcomed to the community recently by the Chamber. Located at 115 S. North Street, Freedom Insurance provides insurance for auto, home, renters, recreational vehicles, specialty and bonds. 

Summers said her company has connections with different carries, “We have several different carriers we are appointed with. We have top preferred carriers and carriers for those just starting out or up again. This gives Freedom the ability to make sure you are with the right carrier for the customer’s needs.” 

The Southern State graduate is relatively new to the insurance industry, but has an extensive customer service background from car dealerships, to retail. She also served in the Army Reserves for 5 years. 

“I decided to go into business for myself because I do things different, I am very disciplined, hard-working and a problem solver. I wanted to be in control of how I work, how my customers are treated, and still be able to be a good mom for my family,” said Summers. “Obviously, without my customers I wouldn't be able to continue on being an agency owner, they are the most valuable asset and they should be treated as such.” 

Office hours for Freedom Insurance and Services are 9:00 a.m.- 4:00 p.m. through the week, but appointments can be made for any time.

Complete Floor Care is the second new, locally owned business in Fayette County that was recently welcomed into the Chamber. The company offers residential and commercial cleaning of all types of flooring including carpet, tile and grout, upholstery, and area rugs. They also provide water extraction services for flooding and excessive spills.

Owner Todd Jackson has over four years cleaning carpet, tile, upholstery, and area rugs. Jackson is a 1992 Miami Trace graduate, a Southern State Graduate in Electro-Mechanical Engineering, and has 6 years service in the Navy as a Machinist Second Class. His is employed with Sugar Creek Packingas Corporate MRO Analyst.

“Complete Floor Care was an opportunity to provide extra income to my family in order to give my granddaughter, Ellie, a more normal life. Ellie was born with cardiomyopathy which required her to have a heart transplant last year, at around 6 months of age. Due to her immunosuppression medication and numerous complications, day to day activities such as going outside to play or trips to the playground are very limited to avoid her getting sick. Knowing this, when the opportunity arose to purchase the equipment to start my own business, I took it without hesitation,” said Jackson. “We are a locally owned small business that is run by and hires detail oriented people. We offer quality work at a reasonable price and customer satisfaction is our priority.”
