Sweep Masters Once Again a Force 10 Years After Katrina

SweepMasters’ market area extends from Waylon, Mississippi to Mobile, Alabama. Hurricane Katrina hit that area of Mississippi in August of 2005, changing the landscape — and the business landscape — ever since. Overnight, the company lost 75% of its customers. In addition, Monroe lost her home. With no work for their employees, the ownership duo took over all tasks in the company, a situation that continued for the next two years. Although faced with an uphill struggle, the SweepMasters organization shows that even after a disaster like Katrina competent members of the business community can persevere and come out the other side in growth mode.
