As we continue to encourage all Manatee County residents to #SupportLocal, we think it’s important to get to know the people behind some of the area’s best businesses! Welcome to our first-ever Discover Bradenton Business Spotlight.
We were excited to have a chance to catch up with Scott Monroe, owner of Monroe Plumbing. Here’s what he had to say…
Can you tell us a little bit about why you love what you do? What is it about your business that makes you so passionate?
|“It’s just in my blood to be a plumber. I was the youngest licensed plumber at the age of 19 in the State of Florida when I received my license in 1980. I was working with my father, who was the owner at that time. Now, my oldest son Chris is working with me and getting his license to carry on the business.”|
What’s your favorite thing about owning a business in Bradenton?
“There is no better place in the world to live and work than in Manatee County. We have some of the best people to work with and love being able to help clients get what they need. We feel good about always being able to simply take care of our customers, without trying to upsell.”
What do you want people to know about your business?
|“We have been servicing this area for over 40 years. Being family-owned and operated allows us to give the best pricing and warranty our work. We’re also involved with local non-profits and love supporting where we live. We truly appreciate those supporting us.”|
What’s your favorite way to #SupportLocal?
“We make sure to use local business as much as possible. We always try to look for Manatee County Chamber members, Discover Bradenton members, and local non-profits whenever we need a product or service. Of course, we also love to visit all the locally-owned restaurants. We make it a point to go out to eat a couple times a week.
