Today we’d like to introduce you to Chris and Jo Peregoy.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Living in Phoenix, we had always wanted to operate our own business. Any vacation opportunity we had, we would drive over to OB with the kids and dog. We loved the community feel and culture that exists here in OB, so when the chance to become business owners in OB presented itself, it was a no brainer!
Has it been a smooth road?
It has definitely been a bumpy road thus far, but as the old proverb goes: Nothing worth getting is easy. We completed a majority of the purchase process from our home in Phoenix, so that made things a bit more challenging. Since the Ocean Beach Business Center has been in OB for over 7 years, we haven’t had to start completely from scratch, we have just taken the time to make it ours. We bring over 30 years combined experience in customer service to the table, and we are confident that will shine through in our day-to-day interactions with this amazing community.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with Ocean Beach Business Center – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
We are a print, copy, fax, shipping company, so we do all of the above. This is what we specialize in, but most think of us as just that. We are more than that. We can make large format banners, business cards, mounted prints, etc. We also offer personal mailboxes, which is different and more flexible than a P.O. Box. With personal mailboxes, we receive deliveries from all major carriers, FedEx, UPS, USPS, DHL, etc. and keep them safe and secure until you pick them up. They are really convenient for those who run a business from their home but don’t want business mail delivered there. Also, in OB, like many beach towns, people move around a lot. How annoying is it to change your address every six to twelve months? Personal mailboxes provide a centralized location regardless of how often you may move.
As a company, we are most proud of our commitment to giving back and supporting our OB community! We support local OB artists like Cards by Michelle, who hand draws and hand blends her post cards and has them for sale in our shop. OB-raised Sammy Rudkus has his first published book on our shelves. Shot From the Hart is a local photographer who produces beautiful OB-centric calendars for our customers as well. We also donated over 200 boxes to the OB Town Council, in support of their annual Toy and Food Drive.
What truly sets us apart is our commitment to an amazing customer service experience while striving to better our surrounding community.
Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
We love how the community rallys together. The sense of community pride is evident on a daily basis. The only opportunity we feel OB has to get better, is finding a resolution to the homeless epidemic.
