Virtual-Strategy Magazine:

Putting everything on the line was not just Shauna and Ed Sharpsteen’s investment for their family, it was an investment into a dream of business ownership. As Stratus Building Solutions Master Franchise Owners, along with their daughter and son-in-law Emily and Jared Thomas, they have met the goals they set for themselves. In their third year open as a franchising business who services professional buildings with green facility services, they operate at 5258 South Pinemont Drive, Suite B-280 in Salt Lake City, Utah and are available at 801-266-2200.

Coming into the industry with little experience was initially thought to be a challenge, but ended up to actually be a benefit. It allowed them to adhere to the system, which is how they have produced such striking results. As co-founder of Stratus of Salt Lake City, Jared Thomas, shares, “We feel our success has come from approaching our business as though we knew nothing. We follow the Stratus system and depend on our corporate contacts and colleagues to teach us what we need to know.”
