    Also...how is it working with family day in and out..and then having a homelife?


    Is it a loving thing..or do you want to choke hold some people every now and then?

    Our avg crew brought in over 200k last year, with our highest ones being over 300k

    We went to room pricing in 1982, and had been sq ft for 40 years prior. I do not anticipate changing, but would never say never.

    Ken,

    What was your first job when you started at Hagopian?

    Liked your advice for the small cc business.

    Thanks for sitting in the "Hot Seat"

    Jim

    Will you have them CRI tested? Have you compared them to some the other stuff on the market recently?

    Knowing CRI is going to require products/equipment and eventually firms to be certified to clean under their warranty, will Hagopian follow suit?

    Thank you Jim!

    My first job was as a helper (we call them assistants now) on a truck and I have done pretty much every job in the company. I cleaned for 5 years.

    I am sure hoping that cri and specifically the manufacturers will back down. If not we may have to have our product tested & certified which I am sure it will be. It will just cost a lot of money, but I think it would pay for itself.

    when you say 6-8 jobs per day how large of a population do you think it takes per truck to be able to target that many homes everyday for a year? I live in a town of 30000 do you think there is enough of a base to do $99 price points and be able to keep a crew busy? I am debating on adding a second van, but want it busy from the get go.
