Companion Maids Now Accepts Bitcoin For Payment
New on-demand maid service accepts alternative tender for payment
Chicago, 01-31-2014 – Companion Maids, a new, locally-owned, on-demand maid service, announced today that they are now accepting Bitcoin as a payment option for their maid services.
Donald and Thomas Spann, a father-son team from Chicago, launched Companion Maids in August of 2013 as a way to tackle the inconvenience of booking a cleaning service. The company offers flat-rate pricing by the bedroom without the need for quotes or hourly calculations. Customers can book online in 60 seconds or less, via credit card or Bitcoin.
“Chicago has always positioned itself as a hub of technology, innovation and most importantly, access,”said Donald, (son of Thomas) and co-founder of Companion Maids, “Local business owners everywhere are beginning to see the real potential of Bitcoin, and have started to accept it. As a maid service company that prides itself on providing the utmost convenience with the help of technology, we wanted to be a part of the Chicago Bitcoin movement.”
Both Thomas and Donald are long-time advocates of Bitcoin. Donald first became aware of Bitcoin in November 2012, and decided to buy a few at around $20/coin (Bitcoin now trades at roughly $800/coin.) Donald told his dad about it, who loved the idea from the start.
“I don’t think anyone in the Bitcoin community expected it to blow up as much as it has,” Donald said, “Thankfully the surge, and widespread attention this crypto-currency has, businesses and consumers alike see Bitcoin as a viable payment alternative. We are proud to accept it!”
Companion Maids is the first maid service in Chicago to actively accept Bitcoin, and one of the very first in the US. Companion Maids joins a few dozen other businesses in the Chicago area that accept Bitcoin.
