Since you are One Krazy Kajun Enteprises
Use the enterprise logo and just put both landscaping and flood works on the truck

I've decided to keep both companies seperate, I want to build up the lawn/landscaping to where I can remove myself from the field. (Let my brother actually become a foreman/crew leader). I will still handle sales/estimates etc... For the time being.

Our Crewcab chevy will get One Krayzee Kajun graphics soon. We are upgrading a few things on the truck.

Flood Workz will get its own truck/trailer & CTL hopefully by summer.( I have some very large bids out, just it's the end/beginning of the year so waiting for jobs to get back active). I'm also working on a Heavy Construction Cert for Flood Workz.

Jacob,

I think you might be trying to do too much. Jugglin from Flood Workz to the Lawn company. You should just stick to one for the time being and really build it up and then worry about the other business. If you are going to run with the landscpape biz i wouldnt worry about buying a truck,trailer and ctl for the summer. I would focus 100% on the landscape biz instead of 50% landscape and 50% flood workz. Just my thoughts.

I have to agree with you. I can make the landscape company sustainable and able to operate all year round. Better to focus myself on what i have started and already built and make it into something my kids will be proud to take over.

Plus If we do get a storm, One Krayzee Kajun will just rent the sandbag attachment from floodworkz.

God do i hate taking of graphics! When we changed the logos on our trucks i was too cheap to pay the person that was installing to take them off so i volunteered for the job. Yea i saved a bit of money but it sucked!

There you go, the beauty of maintenance is the secure year round income. It pays the bills and any extra work is just icing on the cake.

You should have got a pinstripe wheel for your drill.

I use to use something else for glue too but I can't remember what it was.

I tried a pinstripe wheel. No luck. Had to use a heat gun on low to remove most of it.

I have 5cans of turtle wax sticker remover. I'm gunna try spraying it with that than hit it with the pressure washer. No way im scrubbing the whole damn trailer.
