Learning how to successfully battle winter storms in Northeast Ohio cannot be taught in a classroom or read in a book. The only lesson comes from experience, specifically 38+ years of experience. Storms such as the Blizzard of '78 and the Christmas Eve storm of '04 can paralyze entire areas bringing travel and business to an abrupt halt. As a result choosing the proper partner is a critical decision for commercial and industrial complexes, hospital networks, medical facilities, retail establishments, shopping malls and other companies that can't afford to have weather related business interruptions or have their employees or customers experience unsafe conditions. That's why Abraxus Snow Removal, Inc is the solution. Abraxus Snow Removal, Inc is serious about managing the business of snow-so that snow doesn't manage your business. I put all of my eggs into one basket with the snow removal business. I put everything but my first born on the line. I put $1.5 million into the salt storage dome, I got the contract and did a marketing campaign for the salt and snow removal combined. I wanted to get the attention of the snow removal contractors in the area and I wanted to get some more snow removal business going. I designed Abraxus Salt so that as Abraxus Snow, I would want to do business with them. The first year I built the dome I went from doing $770, 000 in snow and we jumped to $1.7 million. The salt did $500, 000 in its first year, and that was a mild winter. What did it was putting all my efforts into the business and diversifying the business into something that has to do with snow removal, which is the salt. And then the advertising campaign helped bring everything together. I honestly had no idea that I gave birth to a giant because, together, the business has grown by leaps and pounds. I did nearly $5 million in snow removal and salt last year. When you have growth that fast you'll have problems. The controls are much tighter now and the people I have in place are much better. I didn't realize how many hangers-on I had at the company until we made that growth and then I could finally see it. The growth, at first, was overwhelming. You have to adjust your thinking. Reaching seven digits is an amazing accomplishment but you have to adjust how you approach the business after your reach that point. When you do that, you have to sit back and take a look at everything and relearn how you manage something like this because it comes with its own problems.
