Well-Paid Maids Reflects on Its Biggest Wins of 2022

Everyone is sharing their 2022 recaps on social media… so we figured we would, too!

This year was a big one for Well-Paid Maids, D.C.’s living-wage cleaning company. Here are a few of our favorite wins:

⭐️ All of our cleaners were fully vaccinated… and boosted!

⭐️ We expanded our operations into New York — let your NYC friends know!

⭐️ We supported Maryland’s paid family and medical leave program, which passed April 9.

⭐️ Our founder, Aaron Seyedian, spoke with the Department of Labor about the importance of workplace flexibility.

⭐️ We were voted Best Maid Service in D.C. for the second year in a row.

⭐️ We surpassed 100 Yelp reviews with a 5-star average.

⭐️ We supported D.C.’s Domestic Workers Bill of Rights, which passed Dec. 20. (More on that in an upcoming post from us!)

As always, thank you for your support.

In 2023, we’ll continue to pay our employees fair living wages starting at $22 an hour and offer benefits like insurance and 24 paid days off a year.

We’re excited to see what the new year brings, and we look forward to cleaning your home!

The Potomac Roasting Company is stocked with excellent coffee to meet almost any palate. But that’s not the only good news. We now offer free shipping for orders over $35.

The Potomac Roasting Company is a local micro-roaster specializing in artisan coffee. We precision roast high-quality beans sourced from small farms in Latin America and Africa that are owned and operated by women. We will make sure that your coffee is roasted the way you want it and delivered fresh.

Our newest coffee comes from Mbozi, Tanzania. We secured a shipment just before this small batch of delicious beans sold out. In Swahili, Usawa means balance and Kahawa means coffee. The beans are grown on small farms that are part of a cooperative promoting gender equity and market access for women. This is a smooth and balanced coffee that is sure to please.

We also received coffee shipments that were delayed following the tragic collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge. That includes the most recent harvest of La Morena coffee beans from Huehuetenango, Guatemala. We have plenty in stock, so that you can stock up! Rounding out our specialty coffee choices are fresh roasts from prime coffee-producing regions of Colombia and Peru.
