When Zachary Romano graduated from the College at Brockport two years ago he was looking for something he could really enjoy.
“There was a few jobs out there, but nothing I really liked — lots of sales positions and I really didn’t want to do sales,” said Romano, 22, who has a bachelor’s degree in business and finance. “I couldn’t really find anything I wanted to do, so I decided to open up a business.”
Romano’s company deals in pennies, nickles and thousands of discarded cans and plastic bottles customers drop off by the bag-full or truck-full at a Fairport store for redemption of the state’s 5 cent deposit.
Can Kings is a business of slim margins reliant on generating great volume, but Romano is slowly growing the company, like many others expanding into eco-friendly markets across Rochester and the nation.
