Scherba’s Great Floors has been in business for 50 years, and on September 20th we wanted to celebrate the staff and customers who have made the growth and longevity of our small family business possible. We hosted a day of golf, contests, laughs, and the occasional Caesar at the lovely Firerock Golf Course in Komoka.
Our 70 competitors, and their guests, traveled from all over South Western Ontario to take part in our celebration. Although the main focus was fun and festivities, we engaged our guests’ competitive side with a putting competition throughout the day.
During the dinner portion of the evening, Dave Scherba, the eldest son of founders Tony and Evelyn Scherba, gave a speech to thank customers and staff for their loyalty that has allowed us to be in business for 50 years.
He told the story of Great Floors: In 1967, Tony and Evelyn started the business in their home as a carpet cleaning company. It has grown since then, now with three locations and spanning three generations. Dave’s brothers, Arlen and Mark, were also in attendance to celebrate the milestone.
Jeremy and Amanda, Dave’s children, also work running the company. They presented Dave with a beautiful engraved watch to celebrate his semi-retirement and to thank him for all his help over the years, and for teaching them everything they need to know about the business going forward.
We want to take this opportunity to acknowledge all of our loyal staff, customers, and family members who have put the Great in Great Floors over the last 50 years. Thank you for supporting local, family-run businesses like ours.
