When it comes to the new year, local business owners hope to either maintain or improve their current businesses.

As 2013 begins, many are looking to find new and better ways to serve customers in and around the area.

“I’m going to try to be more equipped for smaller jobs,” George Wilson of George Wilson’s Tree Service, said.

Though based out of Wadesboro, his business serves various parts of Union County. In 2013, he hopes to upgrade his current equipment in order to better serve customers and compete with other tree service businesses in the area, he said.

Warlick Trucking focuses on grading services and other related work. Owner Randy Warlick hopes for 2013 is another good year for the business.

He hopes to continue with a steady stream of work in the new year, Warlick said.

Todd Hess, who owns PostNet in Wesley Chapel, looks to improve in 2013.

“I think we just have to develop new things to help grow our business,” Hess said.

Lately, they have focused on the printing aspects of the business, especially its digital printing services, he said.

Parker Mills, who owns Mills Cleaners, said there are not any current plans for changes or improvements to the business in the new year.

“Just keep with what we have and vie to maintain it and move forward,” Mills said in reference to his hopes for the business in 2013.
