When you hire an asphalt pavement contractor for your Minnesota home or business, you have a choice. And when you choose to work with J&W Asphalt, you’re hiring a family-owned company.

J&W Asphalt was founded by asphalt pavers Denny Johnson and Jerry Wagner in 1976. Their names are the “J” and “W” in J&W Asphalt. When Denny retired in 2010, he passed the torch to his son Shaun, who had been working with the company under his father’s guidance since the age of 13.

In this post, we’re exploring some of the many advantages of hiring work from a family-owned local business instead of a large-scale national corporation. To connect with our team and get the best service in Minnesota, give us a call today.

Local Professionals You Can Trust

If you talk to many of your Minnesota neighbors about family-owned business, you’ll quickly learn that many folks see family businesses as the beating heart of the U.S. These are just a few reasons people choose family-owned over corporate time and time again:

1.    High-Quality Workmanship

One of the biggest reasons people turn to large corporations is that they’re often able to promise suspiciously low pricing. But while larger companies focus on gaining as many profits as possible with as many customers as they can, smaller, family-owned companies are more interested in providing excellent service and workmanship. To a small business owner, our customers are our friends and neighbors. We want people to tell their friends and keep coming back, and we want our work to reflect our commitment to serving our communities.

2.    Approachability

We’ve all experienced the frustration of sitting on hold with a mega-corporation and finally getting connected to a CSR somewhere in another state or even another country. When you have an issue with a large national corporation, you’re likely to get passed up the chain until you reach someone who doesn’t understand your issues, and it can be much more difficult to get the help you need. With a local family business, you get to know the people you’re working with and build a relationship on trust. Family businesses are also committed to ensuring a solid reputation and standing behind their name.

3.    Supporting the Local Economy

One of the biggest reasons to work with a local business is the opportunity to support the local economy and keep money within the community. And since family businesses are owned locally, they’re more likely to keep that money circulating within the local community as well.
