RANDY CURETON: We've been fortunate that our business has grown based on word of mouth. We've started out with a small customer base, mainly neighbors of the ranches that Dad worked on and managed. Now we've got a huge customer base, people that have come to us based off of the reputation of the work that we've done for their neighbors or friends or coworkers.
DALE CURETON: So you work for one guy and he tells his neighbor, and they tell their neighbor. Pretty soon, you're working for everybody.
RANDY: Everything is word of mouth down here, most of our jobs come from the coffee shop. Come from the local cafe or the parts store. Somebody needs something, that's where they go to ask. And if we have a good reputation with those people and have done a good job for them, then we'll get more work.
