Lessons we learn from our favorite Houston businesses

at | Category: Articles, Roofing


Small business owners can recognize pretty quickly when a fellow
entrepreneur is doing what it takes to stand apart from the
competition, and when you’re in the home services game – whether it’s
roofing, plumbing, air conditioning or electrical – you get to know
who the best of the best are.

One Houston-area business I continually admire is Abacus Plumbing,
because of the importance they place on having strong ethics and doing
everything they can to take care of the customer above all else. Allen
O’Neill, the owner of Abacus, basically has the same philosophy as we
do at Precision Roof Crafters, that you shouldn’t worry about thee
money and if you do something you’re passionate about and take care of
the customers then the money will take care of itself.

I’ve seen them grow a whole lot in the past five years, from four
service trucks to more than 40, and it’s been gratifying seeing a
business that’s committed to building trust with their customers first
and foremost succeed in a big way.

And since we all have a favorite restaurant we love to talk about,
I’ve got to give some love to District 7 Grill. It’s another example
of a local business that’s grown by doing all the little things right,
in this case by emphasizing originality in all its recipes and
refusing to do anything off the shelf.

That approach means you know you’re going to get something distinct
with every dish, whether it’s traditional burgers or pastas, or any of
the healthy offerings like the blackened mahi-mahi salad that is my
favorite item on the menu.

I try to do business lunches there whenever possible and we’ve had
District 7 cater events for us, and they always do a great job. I’m so
loyal that I try to take advantage whenever I’m in the area and get
something to eat there, which is a mark of a business that knows how
to treat its customers well every time.
