Meet The Team

For over 15 years, Al Merino and family have been providing cleaning services to many of New York City’s top restaurants and bars.

Alvaro "Al" Merino, Founder and President of Restaurant Cleaners



Hi, I’m Al! I’m the founder and president of Restaurant Cleaners. I started this company with my wife almost 20 years ago. Just me and her, a tag-team duo. Today, I’m proud of our 60+ team members. I love coming into work and putting a smile on people’s faces. When I’m not working, you can find me on a grill or repairing watches. 

Daniel Merino, Client Relationship Manager



Hi, I’m Dan. I oversee all client and account relationships with Restaurant Cleaners to ensure each client is having the best experience possible with our company. When I’m not at the office, you can catch me playing disc golf with friends or hitting a boxing bag. 

Gloria Merino, Billing & Human Resources



Hi, I’m Gloria. I oversee the residential division of the organization. From apartments, to condos, to single family homes, I manage it all on the residential side. When I’m not working, I am a volunteer firefighter as well as a proud dog-mom. Go packers!
