The Blue Beetle Story

Meet Our Founder
Mitch originally ran his business from his home in Waldo and kept supplies in the shed in his backyard. After three years of growing and developing his business by himself, Mitch was ready to start adding to his team. It’s the dedicated employees that helped shape Blue Beetle into what it is today. John Bauer, one of Mitch’s first technicians, is still employed today!
Mitch’s motto is to use the company to give back to society with donations and free service to organizations such as St. Jude’s, Operation Breakthrough, and multiple churches. The company is also used to benefit its 60 plus teammates/work family in personal growth, opportunity for education and advancement in knowledge and income. “The company is a tool to give back to my team and the world. Everyone wins. The customer, the teammate, myself, and society”
