Francisco Rivera is the owner of Wepa Commercial Cleaning and shares how Wepa is San Diego’s #1 veteran-owned and -operated janitorial and disinfecting company. This top-rated business with coverage in major publications provides a full range of services with skilled employees and advanced procedures to ensure a healthy environment for an organization’s employees, customers, and guests. Established in 2015, Wepa is an industry leader, focusing on customer satisfaction and the highest level of military standards. It’s also continuing to expand with clients across San Diego County.
“As an entrepreneur, one of the most difficult tasks that we had was trying to properly structure our business,” Francisco comments. “There’s nothing like the SBDC. The SBDC starts you off primarily from the beginning and gives you that ladder to climb the corporate steps. SBDC is the reason why we’re so successful. Hands down.
“To all my veterans, I highly encourage that if you have an idea or a concept that you wanna bring to life or make it into a business, reach out to the SBDC. From one veteran to another, I highly encourage you need to do that.”
Wepa earned a $1MM one-year contract with the Port of San Diego through the SBDC’s help as well as achieved renewal of his company’s Disabled Veteran Business Enterprise certification with the California Department of General Services.
