Milton's Business of the Month
We’re Off to See the Wizard!
Tool Wizard and More LLC has been selected as April’s Business of the Month for the Town of Milton! Run by Kevin Carmichael, owner, Tool Wizard and More has been up and running since 1999 and has found its home in Milton for the past three years. When asked what this business has to offer, Carmichael said that they “offer U-Haul rentals, small engine repair, tool repair, create custom shirts and hats, create custom cups, and we have new product all of the time.” Carmichael also mentioned that they “are willing to do odd jobs. There’s not much we don’t try to work on.”
While most businesses follow a steady start-up, Tool Wizard and More was created in a very unlikely way. “This business started on a bet” Carmichael said. “It was a $50.00 bet that I couldn’t last a year as a tool repair business and I’m still going.” The growth of this company has been notable and consistent. Carmichael said that he “started this all on that bet back in 1999 when I was working out of my basement. Look where we are now.”
On the topic of growth and expansion, Carmichael was asked what plans Tool Wizard and More has for the upcoming future. “We have new product coming in all of the time” Carmichael said. “We may have plans to start doing custom plates if we get a new machine. I hope that within another year or so that I will have employees here. When it comes to location, though, I’m exactly where I’d like to be.”
Tool Wizard and More understands the importance of community and tries to stay involved. “We do quite a bit for the school. We help out a lot with Project Graduation and also we’re making keyrings for the bags for the kids. When the football team had problems, they brought in footballs that we customized to have the kids’ names, the team . . . and we made custom hats for the coaches, free of charge. We try to do a lot for the community.”
Stop by in person to Tool Wizard and More LLC at 5 River Street or call their number at 802-891-6320 for more information.
