When you open a sign business, you may imagine or wonder if your son or daughter might someday work with you and eventually take over the company. Familyoperated sign businesses are fairly common and it’s a good thing to see your business pass along to the next generation.
That’s how it’s working out for Mike and Jay Szczoczarz, better known as Mike Z and Jayzee. (“Everyone in our family goes by Z,” explains Mike, “thanks to all those Zs in our last name.”) The father-and-son team has worked together for over 27 years.
Their shop is in Seekonk, Massachusetts, which is right on the border with Rhode Island, and has two 30-by-50-ft. bays. One is divided into a small showroom, a computer room with the printers and plotters, and the CNC router room. They do most of their 3D sign production there, too. The other bay is for trucks and graphics. There is an office upstairs.
