Coming from a family of engineers and a dad who never stopped inventing better ways to do things, the client spent 3 months researching and developing a way to clean upper-level lanais, in a way that would not intrude on the neighbors below! In April 2015 WaterLESS Lanai Cleaning LLC was formed.

With 30 years of business experience, the client didn’t need the usual business advice, he was looking for a professional that would keep him on the right business path and also act as a sounding board for all the crazy ideas that he would come up with. This is where SCORE jumped in. With SCORE’S help, the client was able to develop an excellent business plan, and most importantly, an exit plan that would lead up to his ultimate goal of selling the business to supplement his retirement.

Since 2015, the company has grown and now services well over 300 clients living in small vacation condos to multi-million dollar penthouses overlooking the Gulf. In December 2017, with the help of SCORE, the client achieved his goal. The business is now owned and managed by a former employee, a long time Naples resident who has the energy, equipment and manpower to handle the challenges of keeping his clients, and their neighbors below, happy.
