Scottish heritage lives on in the outdoor cleaning industry

LUTZ, Fla. – There’s a new company in Lutz that’s not afraid to show off a little leg, but don’t worry, it’s very family-friendly.

It’s called Men In Kilts and when they arrive at your door you get exactly what you asked for.

“I can walk around being Scottish all day and it makes money for us,” said franchise owner William McKissock, who proudly wears his kilt to every appointment.

McKissock is the real deal, born and raised in the small town of Ayr in south-west Scotland before moving his family to America in 2011.

“It’s beautiful, and I’m from there, but I didn’t want to live and die in the same place,” McKissock said. “So we took the opportunity to move to another country and start a new life.”

William proves that we can take man out of Scotland, but we will never take Scotland out of man. This year, he became Tampa Bay’s first franchise owner of outdoor home cleaning service, Men In Kilts.

“Everyone, my cousins ​​in Scotland, my family, everyone thinks it’s wonderful that I do this job, we wear kilts and I advertise for Scotland, I’m a traveling advertiser for Scotland,” McKissock said.

He’s happy to share his family heritage and the country’s history with his clients, but there’s usually one question that stands out above all the others.

“What are you wearing under your kilt?” I say shoes and socks,” McKissock said. “Like Marilyn Monroe, you have to keep an eye on things.”

No matter where you’re from, every employee wears a kilt, but learning bagpipes is optional.
