"The Bio-One support system is incredible. They are a phone call away,
a text away, an email away. We have found that anything we need whether it’s about how to bid a job, how to work with
an insurance company or client, they are there and they have a wonderful program to teach us how to make our business
successful. Their motto is they answer every call. That’s what we like. If we’re stuck in a job early in the morning
and I need help on how to handle a situation, no problem. Those guys answer and help us. We originally looked at buying
different businesses. With Bio-One, we couldn’t imagine doing anything different."
"One reason I chose Bio-One is because I wasn’t sure how to start a business
on my own. I wanted to be my own boss. I was looking for the structure, support, and guidelines that come
along with a franchise and Bio-One has definitely done that. Anytime I need something I pick up the phone and without
a doubt, they’re always there. They’re like family. We get to know each other, check in on a regular basis and
talk quite often."
