Snow Business Magazine Feature

Remember that photo shoot we did last month for Snow Business magazine?  Today we got our first advance copies of the September issue, and it’s glorious.  You can read the entire article here.  In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek of the cover and feature story.

Sidewalk Technology

One of the things to keep up with in any business is new advances in technology.  And the snow industry has seen plenty of it in recent years, particularly in sidewalk operations.  Learn how new sidewalk technology has revolutionized our business model. Who here remembers the winter of 2014-2015?  We do, quite well.  That year, the Philadelphia region got over 75″ of snow, when typically we only see 30″ or 35″ in a good year.  It destroyed

2018 Annual Team Dinner

This past Saturday, we held our annual team dinner to celebrate the success  of the 2017-2018 winter season.  About fifty of our crew and their family members attended the event, which was held at Scoogi’s in Flourtown, PA. The weather couldn’t have been better (though a few of us were hoping for snow).  We kicked off the night with drinks and conversation outside around our new Snowrator.  After taking a company picture, we all headed

Snow Business Photo Shoot

Suburban Snow Plow will be featured in September’s issue of Snow Business!  It is quite an honor to receive this kind of publicity. Last week, our very own Ian Oelschlegel was interviewed last week as the basis for a cover story on how we do site engineering/verification.  (We think winning the skills competition in Cleveland back in June had something to do with it.)  It is a chance to not only demonstrate the way we do things,

Depending on how large it is and where your facility is situated, many medical facilities are typically designed with a number of common features: Accessibility Everything rolls, from beds, stretchers, wheelchairs, rolling

How to Make a Site Engineering Plan

A site engineering plan is fundamental to today’s snow business — there’s no two ways about it.  Not only does it provide clear expectations with customers, but serves as a valuable addition to your proposals to help you stand out in the crowd of potential bidders.  And while it doesn’t carry any legal weight per se, it will be referenced in the contract and will serve to illustrate a baseline scope of work, so it should

What We Do In The Off-Season

An old joke goes like this: Q: What are the four seasons in Pennsylvania?  A: Winter, winter, winter, and construction.  Contrary to popular opinion, there is no off-season, even for a snow-only company like us.  After the last snowfall, we send out our final invoices and sign the last few checks.  Our equipment goes through a thorough inspection, and much of it gets packed away until the fall.  Our vehicles undergo major maintenance, and many of our employees

Hope everyone had a blessed Memorial Day weekend!  Also, a big thank you to all who stopped by our booth on Saturday.  The weather couldn’t have been better, and we got to meet many of you and also generated several new promising leads as a result.
