Ryan McDonald

Ryan McDonald grew up in Marietta, Georgia and graduated from The University of Georgia in 2002. After graduation, he sold his car and bought a one way ticket to St. Thomas, where he lived for 5 exciting years. After returning to the mainland he had brief stints in Chicago, Vail, and Denver. He headed back to Athens, Georgia to be closer to family and friends, and started CitruSolution Athens.

Ryan learned about CitruSolution from his father, who has been using CitruSolution in his home and investment properties for the last 20 years. When Ryan spoke with the founder and franchise owners of CitruSolution, he was extremely impressed by the company’s exclusive process and the high level of ethics under which each owner runs his business.

CitruSolution franchise owners aim to be more to their community than the service they provide. Ryan started CitruSolution Athens in October of 2009, and after less than 2 years in business, his franchise had already been recognized as the city’s best carpet cleaning company. Ryan is proud to be teaming up with other current franchise owners to promise excellent CitruSolution service in Chicago!
