After spending 15 years in the garment industry, Milko Nunez realized that if he wanted to achieve his goal of being the boss, he was going to have to make a change in his life. In 2005, he made the decision to work for himself by starting a Coverall Commercial Cleaning Franchised Business.
Nunez always possessed the qualities of a leader and entrepreneur. For nearly two decades, he had helped grow a wedding dress business in the New York City area and knew he could do the same with his own business, no matter what it was. While he did not have any commercial cleaning experience, he liked the opportunity and was confident this was the right way to start and build his own business.
Today, with nearly 80 customers ranging from childcare centers to churches, he is the first to admit that starting and running a business is no easy task.
“It was a challenge in the beginning, but the Coverall Support Center has been extremely helpful over the years,” said Nunez. “My customers are my first priority and it is my responsibility to be there for them rain, snow or shine.”
Milko Nunez and his wife also find time to run their foundation, Familia Unida Sembrando Sonrisas, which delivers medical supplies, coloring books, toys and food each year to children with cancer at Hospital SOLCA (Sociedad de Lucha Contra el Cancer) in Portoviejo, Ecuador.
