About Us

Our History

2166515594_3d5072c19a_oIt always gives us a bit of a grin when folks ask if we’re called “poor man” because we’re cheap! We are not cheaper than most; there is bit of a story with the name.

Long ago I, Brian Hoyt, used to be a fancy geek… network engineer/systems administrator.

In June of ’01 was left unconscious, on the side of the road, in a hit and run motorcycle accident.

By July of ’02, had been through a couple shoulder surgeries, was 13 months into nearly four years of rehab, was diagnosed as unemployable but not disabled by the great state of Idaho’s worker comp insurance.

It put me in the imposition of using the entirety of my savings and health insurance, an eviction notice, my BMW 5 turned into the bank, and no way of employment let alone eating.

A buddy helped me get the change out of my couch and we bought a bottle of awesome window cleaning solution and roll of paper towels from the dollar store.

Empowered with a fierce hunger, I went business to business, stating simply “hello, my name is Brian. I am poor, I am hungry and would like to eat tonight. May I clean your windows?”. Three days later someone said yes! I walked to the Shopko next door to them after cleaning their windows, with 15 bucks in my pocket. Bought a 4 pack of angel soft toilet paper, a case of ramen noodles, and a case of assorted Campbell’s soups.

When walking back out of the store, was asked by the manager of the shop I cleaned “will you be back next month?”

July of ’02, Poor Man Window Cleaning, was born!
