Today we’d like to introduce you to Christina Calzadilla.
Hi Christina, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstories.
SunSouth Carolinas is a family-owned Outdoor Living Company. We specialize in hardscapes and designs.
We originally partnered with a crew that we hired to build a patio for our home. We loved what they did for us and our new favorite room of the house was quickly created. With my husband both being bilingual and in business sales, he offered the idea of a partnership to this crew.
SunSouth Carolinas was created in 2016. Although the labor side of our partnership left before he could begin our first project, Carlos kept this newfound dream and grew it to where we are today. Patio after the patio was built and we knew we made the right decision to keep to our plan.
Deciding to go over and beyond the industry standards, our team became certified in almost every way possible to grow our knowledge. Now in 2022, our goal is to finish the year with over 5 million dollars in sales.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
New struggles always present themselves being business owners. By no means was our road smooth but we smoothed it ourselves as best as we could.
Covid was a blessing and a curse for us. Huge fears presented themselves when cautions and social distancing were first announced. Being able to work outside helped tremendously and the need for a new space for homeowners rose when lockdowns began.
Allowing families to stay home yet be outside of the walls of their homes became quickly desirable.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
A passion of ours started our goal to create beautiful outdoor living spaces for our community. We thrive in designing custom patios, outdoor kitchens, fireplaces, pools, and more.
We are a trade and the skill set of our employees is what truly built this company from the ground up. However, our customer experience sets us aside from other companies similar to ours. We have the support from our dealers/ manufacturers due to the vow we took to build our projects the right way and not cut corners for cost.
We offer premium service from start to end. Amazingly detailed 3D renderings of each project are made to scale to bring the homeowner’s ideas and desires to life. Our secret is treating every backyard like it’s our own… after all, that’s how we got started.
How do you define success?
Watching the growth of our company over the years has been a humbling experience, to say the least. The feeling of true success comes gradually as we see our employees grow not only financially but personally as we do.
Small goals and big dreams are achieved on a frequent basis throughout our SunSouth family.
