Visiting Small Businesses In South Texas

Last week, I visited some Texas-27 small businesses including Venom Outdoor and Oscar’s Pest and Termite Control.
Family-owned and operated, Venom Outdoor in Hallettsville has been providing local outdoorsmen with outdoor products since 2013. It was started by Kevin and Justin, a father-son duo who created the business after looking for a boat motor that would allow them to fish the shallow water of the San Antonio River. They have boats and motors that operate in as little as three feet of water.
I also visited Oscar Torres of Oscar’s Pest and Termite Control in Victoria. Since Oscar started his own business 9 year ago after working in the pest control industry for years, he has had great success. In 2016, his company won the Best Pest Control Company in Victoria award from the readers of the Victoria Advocate.
Both successful businesses show that a good idea coupled with hard work can have great results.
