Zoomer (n): a young, ambitious entrepreneur who yearns to own his/her own company, and isn’t scared of getting their “hands dirty” in a blue-collar business.
Typically, a Zoomer is between the age of 25-35, and has some kind of management experience, but a Zoomer can be of any age or experience! A college degree is not a requirement, but a ‘chip on your shoulder’ is! Low burn rates are preferred; Mike calls this his ‘Ford Focus’ model. You might want to trade in your BMW if you want to be a Zoomer. Zoomers that join us will have the opportunity to own the majority of the company over a seven-year timeline.
For over 30 years, the ZoomUp team has mentored, coached, and identified potential Zoomers. Mike Griffin, partner of Griffin Brothers Companies, understands the traits and characteristics of successful young professionals, and is looking to place those individuals into these ZoomUp-like businesses. Mike believes that if these high potential Zoomers/Entrepreneurs have the ambition to own their own business, then there is no better place than a blue-collar business that treats it’s customers with the upmost respect and integrity.
