The Company Story
A young entrepreneur doesn't wait to build his future.
In 2007, company founder, David Ritchie turned 16 and was a sophomore at Fitch High School in Austintown, Ohio. Faced with the cost of being a teenager in these times, David looked past the "flipping burger" job, the clothing sales clerk or popcorn pusher at the movie theater. He followed in the foot steps of other business owners in his family and became his own boss.
Using money he earned from shoveling snow and raking leaves in his neighborhood as a down payment, young David Ritchie borrowed money for his first mower. While others his age were coveting game consoles and concert tickets, David was beaming with pride showing off his new shiny red zero turn mower. His next step was working with the owner of IM Image Marketing. They traded their services so a logo and image could be developed for his business. He also learned a lot about how to market his business and the importance of keeping a consistent and professional look. This strategy let his clients know that even at his young age he was serious about his lawn care and maintenance business.
Over the last few years of high school, David balanced his time between business owner and student. He built his client base and landed some large commercial accounts. Taking advantage of the "cheap" cost of living with his parents, he was able to improve and expand his lawn care equipment. DR Lawn Care LLC now owns a trailer (emblazoned with the company logo) to haul a full line of professional equipment, a dump truck, and a backhoe.
Now graduated from Fitch High School, David Ritchie is focused on the future of his company. Offering great service and running a professional business has helped him to build a solid beginning. He'll continue to expand his services and find better ways to service his clients.
