Eight One Seven was founded to acquire, operate, and grow one high quality business. I understand and appreciate the hard work that a business owner has poured into their business in order to build a respected company, trusted customer relationships, and talented employee base. Because of that, I have one clear goal – to preserve the legacy built by the original business owner.
