The way businesses operate may be forever changed. Tampa is an adaptable and resilient city that is always prepared to evolve with the times. The transition to an environment where we are more vigorously and vigilantly sanitizing spaces is made easier through the locally-owned and operated Service Industry Safety Supply.This Tampa Bay-based business is replete with tested and trusted supplies to allow your business to safely open and operate.
Owners Beth Martaus and Michelle Pace have called the Tampa Bay region home for years.
Beth moved to Florida in 2000 and fell in love with Saint Pete, moving here in 2001. Michelle moved down in 2004 after a business trip took her to downtown St. Pete. She loved the area and now resides in Seminole.
“We own and operate Cigar City Marketing, a full-service, female-owned Tampa Bay marketing firm,” the Service Industry Safety Supply owners said in an email to I Love the ‘Burg. “When Covid hit, our fast food franchisees had difficulty sourcing items such as powder-free nitrile gloves, disposable face masks, hand sanitizer and touchless hand sanitizer dispensers. With trusted contacts in the safety industry, we were able to provide them with those needed items.
At the start of the pandemic, many restaurants and hotels struggled to acquire an adequate amount of supplies (soaps, sanitizers) to ensure the safe operation of their business.
“When Covid hit, our fast food franchisees had difficulty sourcing items such as powder-free nitrile gloves, disposable face masks, hand sanitizer and touchless hand sanitizer dispensers.,” said Service Industry Safety Supply owner Beth Martaus. “With trusted contacts in the safety industry, we were able to provide them with those needed items.”
As the pandemic progressed, and the need for supplies grew, Beth and Michelle opted to dedicate themselves to protecting those owners. It was from this invocation that Service Industry Safety Supply was born.
“With all of the worries about hand sanitizer recalls, we wanted to be sure we were delivering a quality product,” writes Martaus. “We carry AllShield hand sanitizer and dispensers. Allshield is produced in an EPA registered facility located in North Carolina.”
If you’re a small business in need of non-medical gloves, disposable face masks, face shields, social distancing signage (which can be customized), floor decals, hands free soap/sanitizer dispensers and more, Service Industry Safety Supply is your go-to.
