Since being founded by the late Frank Blow in 1953, Blow Bros. septic service has been a family affair. Anchored in Old Orchard Beach, the business was incorporated in 1970, expanding its services to include portable toilets. In 2000, the company merged with the Bestway solid waste service company owned by fellow Old Orchard Beach natives Archie and Paul St. Hilaire.
