Brothers Skip Window of Opportunity, Choose Door
(Black Enterprise) — For brothers Jamon and Taj Jones, entrepreneurship is in the blood. “Our grandfather started a construction business back in 1949,” says 33-year-old Jamon. Today, Jamon and his 35-year-old brother, Taj, have added a twist to the family’s construction legacy by focusing on servicing and selling an often overlooked component of properties: the humble garage door. Their efforts have resulted in The Garage Door Co. (www.thegaragedoorcompany.com; 770-774-1900), an Atlanta-based business with six employees that grossed nearly $250,000 in revenues last year and is currently projected to grow about 10%—to more than $275,000 for 2010.
