Our CEO's Journey and Advice
Greg's Short Story
I have been running my business for 35 years. When, not if, I win the lottery, I would turn my business over to two of my key employees. I would still be a part of the day-to-day operations to operations to continue growing the business.

There are no “secrets” or “tricks” to a successful business. When you combine endless years of relentless hard work, with an enormous amount of luck and good fortune. There may be moderate success.

About 19 years ago Wawa came along into our business. The company wanted a well-rounded family-owned business to get on board for their lawn maintenance and snow removal.

In the beginning, middle and at the end of the day, it takes hard work and luck to be successful. When combine relentless hard work with and enormous amount of good luck and the good fortune to have the best management team and dedicated employees, this may equal success.
