Opening up the program today was Jim Yeager of Yeager and Company. Jim and his company are General Contractors specializing in flooring as well as kitchen/bath remodels but can assist with all building needs. Jim is our latest Tampa Bay Business Owner’s sponsor and a third generation Owner of Yeager & Company. Started out of Philadelphia, their business is now an industry leader in the area. They come highly recommended with over 600 reviews on Angie’s List and have won the Super Service Award multiple times in multiple categories through Angie’s List. Jim opened the discussion with an announcement of the winners for a new floor contest they ran and talked about the winner and why he won. Jim explains how the big box retailers oftentimes offer an inferior product that while backed up by warranty, are often improperly installed. Jim had to fix one of these installs and he explains how the customer had lived with warped floors for a year due to a deficient install that was denied warranty coverage too. Jim and his company have a beautiful warehouse in Odessa located at 2310 Success Drive and they invite you up to explore all of the flooring options they have available. You can find them online at www.yeagerflooring.com too.
Alongside Jim today was Charlie the Plumber. Charlie is a past frequent guest that had been on a show hiatus but was back in studio today to light up the mic. Charlie, who is never at a loss for words, joined the #MorningDiscussion with some commentary on the Colin Kaepernick situation before plugging Jim Yeager and his business model. Charlie, who is a former pro wrestler and a Marine, is a frequent contributor to a number of radio shows in town too, albeit as an avid caller. He checks in with Jack Harris and Ted Webb on AM Tampa Bay many mornings too with political commentary and rants and loves to talk politics. He met up with our social media contact today and is about to launch his social media channels of which he currently has none, not to promote business, but to get involved in the political online discussions. Be sure to use #AmericanPlumber to agree or disagree with him online. Charlie never shys from the conversation either, we’ll update soon when he is online!
