Matt is the owner of Matt Gravel, a delivery company that’s been providing the same basic service for a couple of decades.
In his 20 years of delivering gravel for homes and businesses, Matt’s gotten plenty of customers.
But when he started to see the popularity of the delivery service go up, he decided to try his hand at it.
“I’m a guy that is always looking to find ways to make things better, so that’s what I’ve always done,” he says.
Matt’s been making gravel for a living since 1994.
His family has been building and selling dirt since the 1980s.
“We’re not a huge business, but we’re very good at what we do,” Matt says.
He started the company after getting tired of dealing with the same old gravel, and now, he has two full-time employees, all of whom are full-timers.
Matt Gravedigger says it’s important to pick a good product and make it that way.
“Our customers have been asking for something different,” he explains.
“That’s the most important thing.
I think what they really want is a great product, a great service, and they want to get their gravel done in a great way.”
Matt says he has a good reputation with customers, and when he’s talking to them, they’re more interested in what’s in his shop than what he has to offer.
“They want to know why I’m doing it and what I’m working on,” he recalls.
“If I’m not going to do it for them, then they’re not going, ‘Okay, I’m going to go out and find me another company.'”
Matt’s business, Matt Graves, was founded in 1993, and he says the biggest thing he takes from customers is quality.
“There’s no shortcuts in this business,” he states.
“You’re going to have to be very professional and have good communication skills.”
And he wants to ensure that he’s doing all the right things.
“It’s a lot of fun to have the customers come in and see that we’re working on a great project and are doing a great job,” Matt adds.
“And that’s important.
If I’m just putting out a product that they like, then that’s not going be a big problem.”
