About Us

Taylor Smith
Founder

Taylor Smith founded CJS Global in Boca Raton, Florida in 2012. A successful entrepreneur who has owned a variety of thriving businesses in the southeastern U.S. including restaurants, cutting-edge nightclubs and lounges and tanning salons since 2000, Smith created CJS after seeing the need for a true “partner” to handle the many behind-the-scenes services necessary to run a productive business.

Smith states that he founded CJS Global as a direct result of the frustration he met dealing with various service companies during his 10 years as a successful restaurateur. He knew that restaurant cleaning required more than typical janitorial services, and that many of these services directly affected or had to be coordinated with one another.

Founded with one client (New York Prime in Boca Raton) in March 2012, CJS continues to grow throughout Florida, with over 500 high-profile clients. These include Chili’s, Rocco’s Tacos, Miller’s Ale House, BRIO Tuscan Grille, Hillstone Group, Seasons 52, Darden, Blue Martini, Bahama Breeze, Brinker, Ipic Theaters, Yardhouse, Capital Grill, BJ’s Brewhouse, J. Alexander’s, and many more. CJS services the leading hospitality groups in major metro markets of Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Carolinas, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Illinois, and more.

Smith says that the secret to his success is simple: Never accept failure. His advice to budding entrepreneurs: “You always have to believe in yourself. If you do, you can get anywhere. It’s worked for me.”

Prior to launching CJS, Smith owned Vivid Nightclub and Gossip Nightclub in West Palm Beach, Caliente Kitchen in Delray Beach and Boynton Beach, On the Rocks in Delray Beach, Ocean Liquors in Boca Raton, Boca Tanning Club in Wilton Manors and Deerfield Beach, and Taylor’s Old Town Tavern in Coral Springs.
