Ready! Get Set! Go!

photoIt’s amazing to see brilliant, innovative introduction of modern businesses to our marketplace. It’s even more amazing to see the business owners follow through not only on their plans but their promises.

A little over six years ago this July a young man, Vince Sedio, saw a need and decided to build a company to fill it. He put his money where his ideas were . . using the money his parents had set aside for his college fund. He did his research, built a solid business plan, and with the help of his father, who had an engineering background, built the company. Today, that company is Palomar Broadband and they are serving all of North San Diego County with their High Speed Wireless Internet Service . . . and serving the entire country with their nationwide DSL service. Their service includes email and troubleshooting networks.

One of many things that makes Palomar Broadband unique is that you actually get to talk to local technical people whenever you have a question or a problem. You will not be talking to someone in India, or Pakistan, or some third world country. You’ll have direct and speedy access to local, highly trained technicians who speak your language! And you can expect on-site service, at no charge. Yes, everything is supported locally!

While the primary focus of Palomar Broadband is their high speed Internet Service, they are rapidly expanding their company into their Nationwide DSL network. Their eight employees are highly trained specialists who know how to get things done. You can sign up on their website or over the phone for DSL. With the high speed Internet wireless service, they will promptly come to your home or office and do an onsite installation. Wireless service is usually finished within one to two days, DSL within three to five days.

Wireless service starts as low as $39.95 per month, DSL as low as 19.99 per month. Palomar Broadband has the lowest cost DSL packages available so get with them for their service. Visa & Mastercard accepted; for information, go to their website: www.vcweb.org - or call 760.749.1335

The Little Company That Could . . . . .

Remember that childhood story about the little train that tried to go up a steep hill and kept saying to itself, “I think I can, I think I can . . .?”

Well, Randy Taylor, that smiling gent who owns and operates Escondido Mattress Factory, assumed that same attitude 54 years ago when he moved to Escondido. He felt if he could build quality mattresses the market would respond. The market has, indeed, responded. They have learned that Escondido Mattress Company translates to Quality Mattresses. They do not follow the mass mattress market by selling mattresses with only a single side. Escondido Mattress Company only builds and sells mattresses with double sides. What does this mean to you? It means that both sides of this mattress passes the Fire Barrier test (the National Industry Standard requires mattresses to resist a torch test for 30 minutes. One sided mattresses are nowhere near as safe as a double sided mattress). Plus, when you turn the mattress (as you always should) you always have a comfortable firm mattress. If you buy a “cheap” mattress by buying a mass market mattress,
you’ll find when you turn the mattress you will not have the support you need . . . nor will you have the fire barrier.

“We see it all too often,” says Randy. “Someone thought they were saving some money by going to a mass marketed mattress company . . . and now they find that only one side is padded. It’s neither fire safe nor comfortable. They wind up buying a mattress from us, built to Industry Standards . . . and one they can rely upon. And sleep on.”

The proof, they say, is in the pudding. Randy Taylor is selling mattresses to the children of parents he sold mattresses to 20, 30, 40 years ago. They know that these are mattresses and people that can be relied upon.

It’s not a big operation. Stop in and see for yourself. Usually, it’s Randy and his friendly little elf, Raul Villapando, who has been with him for 10 years. Yet this two man team turns out a whole showroom of quality mattresses of every size and description.

Have a special need? Perhaps an antique bed you need a mattress built for? A baby crib with a special mattress? King size? Queen size? Twin beds? You name it and Randy and Raul will build it for you. Or, possibly they already have it in stock.

If you’d like to see a dream come true . . . a business which, just like the little train, said, “I think I can, I think I can . . .” and went out and did it . . . come on in! Tour the showroom and factory yourself. Meet a couple of really fine human beings. Randy Taylor and Raul Villapando. At least give them a call . . . at 760.745.5336 or 746.5336.
