Today we are interviewing Mark Landers. Mark is a good friend, neighbor and Serial Entrepreneur. I’ve known Mark for more than 20 years both personally and professionally.
A Serial Entrepreneur
Mark is an owner of East Pattern & Model Corp, a rim injection molding company, Rapid Laserwash and Perinton Express Rapid Car Wash, a growing family of car wash locations in the Rochester, NY area. He is currently evaluating a third location to continue his growth strategy.
As impressive as Mark’s success in business is his ability to overcome adversity. At the age of 44, Mark faced a life threatening medical condition while he was in the midst of expanding his second location, Perinton Express Rapid Car Wash. While there is never a good time for a serious medical condition, it was certainly compounded with this large business expansion.
His business partner and wife, Michelle, had to keep their business running for over three months while Mark recovered in the hospital. I personally impressed with Mark and Michelle’s ability to overcome overwhelming odds and push through the most challenging set of life circumstance you could imagine. I’m not kidding when I say you could even think up such a scenario.
This interview is a tribute to Mark and Michelle and their perseverance through life’s most difficult times. They are the embodiment of Entrepreneurial Spirit!
