Hard to imagine it was only 10 years ago Riley Day was suiting up in the WHL for the Medicine Hat Tigers and Brandon Wheat Kings. And last night Riley, and his brother Spencer, won the award for Best New Business in Brandon as chosen by the Brandon Chamber of Commerce.
The easy question is were you surprised picking up the hardware? “Always surprised that we were nominated and voted in by our peers ….. Shocked and humbled it was a great day for our company" said Day.
Some people have said you guys have a monopoly is that accurate? “ No wouldn’t call it a monopoly we have 5 or 6 companies we compete with. We provide products and service that no one else can we offer.”
Marketing is important and from what I can see you guys have a very modern approach. “We present ourselves as professional as possible, with our clothing, and our white vans….we have set goals early on and stuck beside our branding and imaging."
Good The Bad The Ugly working with family? “We have a unique relationship and we strive to be superior on a daily basis….. Me and Spencer never have crazy blowups or fights.”
How do you see the future? “ Don’t believe in stopping growth or being happy with what we have we will work hard each day to set the bar higher”
Riley Day is the Co Owner of Progressive Sanitation in Brandon
