A huge thanks to everyone - I got the bid
Okay so a few weeks ago I was asking questions....shocking I know and I got a lot of help. For any new folks you need to ask questions BUT you also need to read the forums. You WILL find the answers.
I placed a bid on a 20,000 sq ft floor job to be done nightly and we agreed on 3200.00 per month. After that discussion we also got the general maintenance stuff, i.e cleaning the lights, replacing floor tiles, washrooms, change rooms etc. All of which will be done seperately and on a month to month basis and seperate payment.
After 19 months of little jobs we landed the BIG ONE. The little jobs however are incredibly important because they teach you and guide you to be prepared and professional for the BIG jobs.
We will be going after another grocery store in about 5 weeks....I want it tomorrow lol, but I need to make sure when people see this floor they say "WOW" then I will go after a bigger fish. With my crew however it won't be hard. I have said it before and I will say it again: I have the best crew on the planet.
I also gave everyone a nice raise since we just landed this job. Ya gotta pay your people for a job well done and they always over-deliver for me and the client.
