“Chuck started with ‘one buck and a tool kit!’
His first year, 1949, (all by himself) Chuck grossed $5,000 repairing refrigerators.
In 1965 with 25 employees, out of 3 showrooms franchised by one of America’s largest manufacturers, he did just under 1,000,000!
Pretty fair parlay on one buck and a tool kit!”
