From Fifth-Grade Dream to 10 Years in Business
Herbert Miller knew when he was in the fifth grade he wanted to grow up to be a cabinet maker.
Now, he’s celebrating 10 years of Miller Cabinets being in business.
After apprenticing with a cabinet maker, Herbert went to the SBDC in Ontario in 2007 to get his contracting license so he could launch his own business.
“They’ve almost been more like family than anything,” Herbert said. “They’ve just been an amazing support system.”
The SBDC encouraged Herbert to engrave his logo into his cabinets, put company signage on his truck and start a monthly email newsletter, he said. Herbert still uses a spreadsheet he created with the SBDC’s help to price jobs.
“You can’t really put a value on it,” he said. “It’s amazing.”
