What does a guy do for an encore when he retires from the NFL, after eight years on the gridiron with the Minnesota Vikings and New York Giants? He moves to Florida! But if you’re Robert Harris, you don’t actually retire.
With a Bachelor’s Degree in Business from Southern University, the spirit of teamwork that served him well on the football field, and the knowledge of how to create and execute a strategy for success, Mr. Harris thought it only natural to start his own business.
Armed with “a mop and a bucket,” and the enthusiastic support of his most important team member – his lovely wife, who serves as the company’s CEO – Robert launched MOC Services Clean in 2006 to serve the commercial cleaning needs of the Metro Orlando market. No stranger to hard work and the dedication required to achieve success, he kept knocking on doors and submitting bids to grow his new company’s client base. To his credit, the company has blossomed from that humble mop-and- bucket beginning, and now boasts 10 employees.
Fast-forward to 2016, and MOC Services Clean is celebrating its 10-year anniversary! As if reaching that milestone isn’t a feat unto itself after surviving a recession, Mr. Harris announced he has just landed the biggest commercial contract in his company’s history; one that will enable him to create even more jobs and secure the company’s continued growth well into the future.
Not one to abandon his ties to the NFL, Robert remains actively involved with the National Football League Players Association. He is also a member of the West Orange Chamber of Commerce, The Florida State Council of CCIM, and supports several local charities.
