Twin Entrepreneurs at 18: The Story of a Commercial Maintenance Company

Starting a business at a young age can be challenging, but for two 18-year-old twins, it's a story of determination and hard work. These young entrepreneurs run a successful commercial maintenance company that offers services ranging from landscaping to snow removal. With a team of two crews, they manage to maintain 200 properties and remove snow from 70 accounts every week.

The company started as a summer job to make some extra money, but it quickly escalated into a full-fledged business venture.

As the business grew, they realized the potential and decided to keep it going.

Word of mouth played a significant role in the growth of the business, and in the past six months, Google has also helped with local marketing and attracting new customers. With their hard work and determination, the twins have managed to make a name for...

Most Memorable moments from our dream shop build

Building a shop or any type of property can be an exciting and exhilarating process. From the first moment of breaking ground to the final touches, every step of the way holds its own unique moments of excitement. For those who are passionate about building and construction, the whole process can be an adventure.

For Brittany, the coolest thing about building a shop was the moment when they drilled holes for the building and put the posts in place. This was the moment when they could get a feel for the size of the building and see it starting to take shape. Another memorable moment was putting the mailbox in and making it feel like the property was truly theirs. The mailbox, while small, was a symbol of ownership and a personal touch that made the building feel like a home.

Making tough decisions in business to maintain profitability

Starting a business can be a rollercoaster of emotions, filled with highs and lows. For one entrepreneur, the journey started with a simple lawn mowing business in 2007. However, as the business evolved and started taking on wall projects, the owner fell in love with the hardscaping aspect of the business. Despite this newfound passion, the business struggled to make a profit with the wall projects. The owner understood maintenance well, but just couldn't seem to make the numbers work.

That's where Amanda stepped in, pushing the business to get rid of the maintenance aspect and focus solely on the hardscaping.

Making this change was not easy, as the business had to give up a significant portion of its income. However, the owner was optimistic about the future and knew that the...
