In september 2014, Tugrul Cirakoglu started the Frisse Kater with only €300,- and a great dose of optimism. In the first week Spits! (a national newspaper) knocked on our door and Frisse Kater’s story was published nation-wide in their newspaper, quickly thereafter other media channels also followed, such as the likes of NOS, RTL, Q-Music and Nu.nl.
After a few successful trial months, Tugrul noticed that the Frisse Kater was getting rather successful and that the company had made quite a name for itself in Amsterdam and its surrounding regions. This strengthened his desire to further professionalize and expand the business in order to introduce more people to the services of the Frisse Kater.
The Frisse Kater is not a traditional cleaning company, unlike our competitors we almost solely perform one-time jobs and focus (almost solely) on the cleanup of extreme & extraordinary situations. We are constantly looking for new ways to expand our specialism, and continuously experience new and exciting situations. From the very beginning of our existence we have offered our customers a full-package concept / service, and thus we go much further than only ‘cleaning-up’. We offer a new type of experience in which the customer is completely taken care of, and can fully relax while we are getting rid of all the dirt. This makes the Frisse Kater unique. This, and the fact that we offer superior service for a honest price.
Meet the founder of Frisse Kater. Tugrul Cirakoglu, 27 years old (1990), born and raised in Amsterdam. Tugrul has seen a lot of the world in the past few years. For his study (BA in International & Management studies and MA in Management) he lived and worked in South-Korea, Turkey, China, Thailand, England and other places as well between the year 2009 and 2014.
After graduating he found it difficult to find a job, therefore he decided to take matters in his own hand. During his period of research Tugrul stumbled upon an after-party cleaning service based in America which had achieved some great successes in a relatively short period of time. Tugrul was sure that he could do the same thing, or even better! And with this thought the idea for Frisse Kater was born.
Up until this day Tugrul is still the driving force behind the growth and development of the Frisse Kater. Under his leadership the company has continued to specialize further and further, and is now a household name in the world of extreme cleaning.
