Acquiring Minds: How to Grow a Small Plumbing Business to $26m | John Wilson Interview

John Wilson bought his family’s little plumbing business in 2016. He quickly decided that there was opportunity here, and that he wanted to do something spectacular: Become the largest licensed home services business in Northeast Ohio. 7 years later, and he’s achieved it. The business was over 60 years old when he bought it; his grandfather had founded it. But it was doing just about a million bucks in annual revenue. Not a lot. The first full year of John’s ownership, 2017, saw the business grow to $1.7m. Flash forward, and the Wilson Companies did that much revenue this past January alone. They’re gunning for $26m this calendar year. And, John sees a path to $100m. This story is a hopeful example that you can buy a quite-small business and grow something very large.
