What goods or services do you provide? All Nations Operations is now booting cars for government and private parties. Yep, we are the new parking lot pirates — arrrrr!
What’s new or exciting at your place? We have always worked with locals to manage their properties. However, we could not find a consistent parking control company to serve all our customers over such a wide area, so we started our own booting company to help our customers.
What strategy do you use to differentiate your business from your competition? We charge nothing to the property owners for booting, so it is a free service to them. We have the ability to take most forms of payment including chests full of gold.
What philosophy do you follow in dealing with your customers? What can your customers expect from you? We have two sets of customers, the first being the property owner or the municipality we are working with. They enjoy a hassle-free experience in that we don’t interfere with their day-to-day operations.
The second customer is the person who has had a boot placed on their car because they were raiding a parking spot owned by someone else. Even those people can expect a courteous, respectful encounter from us.
Tell us a little about your background, education and experience: I am a husband to my great wife, Tonya, father to three exceptional kids and that is my emphasis in life. I have built All Nations up from the bottom of the sea, so to speak, after the recession harpooned my job. We/I lost everything, so I built a new business. Then my warehouse burned down and I restarted working the service industry. I really like helping people so it has worked out well.
What is the most humorous thing that has happened at your business since you opened? I had an incident related to me from a law enforcement officer that a lady had called them to report a “big biker” doing something to her car. Since I compete in bearding contents I guess I do look the part a bit.
There are three keys to look at when deciding the bonus days: staffing, skier excitement and conditions.
