Superior Environmental Solutions is owned by Mario and April Sanchez. What started as weed control and landscaping service has become a full service facility maintenance company. For 17 years Mario has been focussed on growing his business in the Superior area.
His parents originally found Superior after investing in some properties in Apache Junction and eventually Superior. The family ventured from their roots in California and after a while Mario found a niche business concept and he has been working the business ever since.
His first business clients included a contract with the Town of Superior, when then Town Manager, Chris Zapata hired Superior Environmental Solutions to maintain the community parks and facilities. That experience helped him to expand his business and today his company contracts with many of the local mines for facility maintenance, landscaping and revegetation services.
In the revegetation projects they have worked on, Superior Environmental Solutions has taken disturbed mining lands and restored it to a natural state. Most recently they have worked to restore lands on the Tonto National Forest where drill rigs had been placed. Due to Forest Service regulations most of this work has had to be done by hand.
Mario and April have made it a priority to hire local employees. They have eight employees and all of them are from Superior. This is something that they are very proud to say.
“We care deeply for our employees and our community,” Mario said. He credits the success of his business to hiring and caring for the employees he hires.
Managing cash flow is often a huge challenge for most small businesses. His best business advice? “Avoid having a lot of debt, work within the money you make,” he explained.
While Superior Environmental Solutions does not focus on residential landscaping services, they do provide some services for residential customers.
