Tell us a little about your business/organization:  how did it begin; what are your services/products, etc.

We are a full-scale painting and a carpet cleaning company.  We paint interior and exterior residential and commercial spaces.  We power wash, clean tile and grout flooring, upholstery cleaning, and clean carpet in both residential and commercial spaces.

After feeling the pressures of a previous position, I left that company.  I took a few months to sort things out and focus on what I really wanted to do.  Through contact with a friend, I was able to purchase a painting franchise, Hampton Enterprises was born, and the rest is history!  In March, I was able to expand the Enterprises by adding carpet cleaning services.  It has been a whole year since my business began and I am feeling really good about the results… for the business, for my family, and for me. 

Tell us about your role in the business/organization.

I am owner of the company and do all the estimating.  As the business administrator, I handle scheduling and ordering.  In addition, I am also responsible for all carpet cleaning, upholstery cleaning, tile and grout flooring cleaning, and painting (when needed). 

Tell us something that makes your business/organization unique. 

The most unique things about Hampton Enterprises is our knowledge of coatings.  I have over 26 years in the coatings industry, 25 years of service with The Sherwin Williams company.  When it comes to paint you couldn’t be in better hands.  As far as the carpet cleaning we are big proponents of ongoing training and continuing education in the industry – we strive to maintain an approach of using best practices to serve our customers’ needs.  To ensure the quality of our work, we consistently use premium products on all our paint jobs and cleaning projects.

What do you see for the future of your business/organization?

Success! I have a 4-year plan to grow my business into a million-dollar enterprise.  By operating honestly and going the extra mile to ensure satisfaction, I am confident that we will reach this dream.  We want our customers to grow in their knowledge of products and services so they can make educated fact-based decisions.  I am working to strategically position my company’s service throughout the state, while maintaining our excellent standards.

How has the Chamber helped your business/organization grow?

The chamber has provided me with a networking platform.  The CDCC is also assisting me with the strategic positioning of my business.

What is your best advice to other businesses/organizations? 

Be patient, keep an open mind, and maintain a positive attitude.  Work hard and network even harder.  Set a standard of quality and hold everyone accountable to that standard.  And through all of that, find a way to still have fun!
