Why the name “Turkey” Systems?
You read that right. “Turkey”, like the bird. I get asked this quite a bit. For one, its unique, no one else has Turkey Systems. This makes it easy to remember. But, more importantly, I chose “Turkey” because that was my grandfathers favorite animal. He always loved Turkeys and had a collection of Turkey trinkets that he collected over the years. After serving in the Army for over 20 years, as a Combat Engineer, he retired as 1st Sargent. The men under him referred to him as “Top Turkey”. He then returned home and started a cleaning business in his home town of Tell City, Indiana. Which he ran for over 22 years. As a teenager, I worked closely with him in his cleaning business. When he passed away I decided that one day I wanted to run my own business, and when I did I wanted to name it after him. Hence the name, Turkey Systems.
