We started our company in 2009, right after the massive crash of 2008, which taught me a great deal. For one: run lean. I saw dozens of businesses go under, mainly due to aggressive expansion and overextending themselves. Now, we’re tightening our belt and running lean again, as everything unfolds. We want to make only critical purchases and rely on cash, not credit.
When you get up close and personal with Ryan Denny, owner of Trash Transporter, you have an immediate sense of old-fashioned courtliness peppered with boy-next-door familiarity and “aw-shucks” chuckles (the best combination of city slicker meets cowboy). Ryan radiates decency, and it’s no surprise that his company, Trash Transporter, is enjoying a 25% growth year after year. Neither is it a surprise that his man-on-the-street marketing style is a stealth weapon that performs.
