Ask any small business owner—it’s not easy to keep the lights on for four years, let alone 40 or more. But Cover-Rite owner Kristopher Kolodziej says his store’s longevity—43 years and counting—is due in large part to the deep knowledge and experience of his team of designers and installers, which has bred plenty of repeat business and outstanding customer relationships.
“The fact that we’ve been in business for so long makes it easier to keep a relationship with the customers for a longer period of time,” he explains. “Customers come back for another project and get to work with the same salesperson and request the same installer, which builds a level of trust that makes for a more comfortable experience.”
