Local San Diego Girl Scout Visits Bill Howe Family of Companies in March

San Diego plumbers received a special guest at the March company meeting and assisted her in reaching her cookie goal and send cookies to troops overseas

March 15, 2014 San Diego, Calif. – The Bill Howe Family of Companies is one of the largest low cost, family-owned and operated service companies in San Diego. Plumbers, HVAC technicians and water mitigation specialists all work seamlessly through the three divisions offering a one stop shop option for San Diego residents. Part of the success of the company has been their involvement in community events, services and youth outreach. Bill and Tina Howe have always supported a variety of organizations, and during their March company meeting, they added a local Girl Scout to the long list of beneficiaries of the Family of Companies.

The Girls Scouts were organized in 1912 and founded on the tenants to build girls of “courage, confidence, and character, who make the world a better place.” Although Girl Scouting offers a wide variety of activities and opportunities for girls, Girls Scout Cookies have become the American Icon of the organization. In San Diego, Girls Scout Cookie Season begins February 1 and lasts through March 16 teaching girls five essential skills: goal setting, decision making, money management, people skills and business ethics.

Girl ScoutTaylor Cole from Girl Scout Troup 8928 contacted the San Diego plumbing company with a perfect cookie pitch. “She was detailed and convincing, providing me with three very specific ways in which our company could help,” said Julie Riddle, Marketing Director for Bill Howe Plumbing. “I was so impressed by her professionalism at such a young age, I wanted to help her reach her goal and Tina was on board from the very beginning.”

Taylor arrived early on March 12, 2014 to meet with Bill and Tina Howe and set up. She and her mom jumped right in mingling with the employees and sharing breakfast before the start of the meeting. When she was introduced, she took the stage with confidence and explained who she was and how our company could help. Taylor was able exceed her goal by several hundreds of dollars in Girl Scout Cookie sales in San Diego. Plumbers rushed to her after the meeting adjourned helping to support Operation Thin Mint and even buying her last remaining boxes.

“She will make one great businesswoman,” said Tina Howe Vice President of the Bill Howe Family of Companies. “She was a natural, and I know it is not very easy to stand up and address a room full of strangers, especially when the majority of them are men. She did wonderful, and we were so thrilled to have her join us and be a part of our meeting.”

What David says about us

Service for new garbage disposal. My ancient garbage disposal quit working, went online to get Bill Howe’s number, immediately received and accepted chat to describe my needs. Prompt call back to schedule an appointment, service tech Allen was out same morning, which was important to fit my work schedule. Job estimate was clear, work done fully to my expectations, area left clean, and price was very fair.
I was not surprised — I have used Bill Howe plumbers for several other tasks in the past. I have always found their staff to be helpful, attentive, and the plumbers very courteous and capable.

What Mira says about us

Bill Howe never fails us! We had a drain overflow, and Scott came (on a Saturday) to look at it and offer solution. He was punctual, professional, and extremely helpful. I should also praise the main office for always being helpful and always finding solutions. Very grateful to have you in San Diego!

What Ed Gohlich says about us

Cory was our technician on this job. We had a time sensitive repair issue and Bill Howe understood and assisted with getting the job done quickly.
Cory was on time to start the job and finished it quickly. Upon his leaving our home he’s was courteous, very knowledgeable, explaining what the problem was and how he fixed it. Very good communication and this is the way it’s has always been when we use Bill Howe plumbing.
Great company to work with.
Thanks Cory.

What Bridgett says about us

I am extremely happy with the service we received from Bill Howe Plumbing. We were given an incorrect diagnosis of our main sewer line from another vendor, but Bill Howe’s servicemen came out for a second opinion, correctly diagnosed our problem and resolved our back up issues. We will continue to use Bill Howe for all our future plumbing needs!

Thank you Bill Howe Plumbing.
