Bio & History
Tony and Brenda Thibodo. We started our franchise in 1990, in the northern tier of Minneapolis. In 1995 we purchased the St Paul Franchise, which incorporated most of Minnesota at that time. Both Tony and Brenda work on the job sites. Brenda also takes care of sales, bids and bookwork.
Our list of clients since we started, are some of the largest fortune 500 companies in the world and many franchise companies as well. We have always taken great pride in our quality of workmanship, we take the security and privacy of our client's business with 100% respect. We have been in many high security buildings and offices, and have had alarm codes and keys in possession many times. We were even cleaning Sun Country Airlines terminal when Vice President Al Gore's plane was parked outside where we were cleaning ceilings. Never a dull moment...
In 2000 we started another business, Sculpture by Design, Inc. This business focuses on "Custom Decorative Concrete Artistry" which includes concrete furniture, fire tables, counter tops, benches, fountains, statuary, concrete curbing and so much more. We are always creating, designing and building new ideas and pushing the limits of concrete with the new technology today.
In 2004 we relocated back to our long time family areas, where we currently live showcasing our garden displays of ideas and large working shop. We operate both businesses 100%. We love living up north and traveling all over the five state region for shows, deliveries and work. You can check out our other business "Sculpture by Design" for more ideas for your business and home. Our concrete products are designed to withstand the cold Minnesota environment as well as the heat and high winds.
Our products can help you create an indoor or outdoor space that provides a stress-less relaxation area for you at home or your place of business for your most valuable assets; employees and customers!
