WARSAW – He was a banker. He is also an entrepreneur and the son of an entrepreneur.
“Growing up,” recalls Adam Fisher, “I always thought I was going to be some kind of business owner because I grew up in a family of business owners. My father’s family owned Fischer Funeral Home, and my mother has owned Fischer Funeral Home since 1990. Owned her hair salon since 2000. Our family has never really had a 9 to 5 job, that’s all I know.
“I’m a financial advisor to JPMorgan and a senior vice president at Coshocton Chase Bank,” he added. “I’ve been in the financial services industry for 15 years and I love what I do every day. But during the pandemic our banks were closed. I’ve always wanted to start an important business and that’s when I realized Dumpster Rentals It’s an underserved market in the region.”
Today, Fischer owns Ohio Dumpster Rentals.
“I started Ohio Dumpster Rentals in June 2020,” he said, “after realizing we needed a local dumpster rental company in our area. There weren’t any dumpster rental companies in the area, so it was difficult to get the dumpsters to us area. I know I can rent bins locally and it’s more competitive.”
Fisher, 38, grew up in Warsaw and graduated from Riverview High School in 2003 and DeVry University in 2006 with a degree in business administration.
“I’m very happy that the business is growing the way it is,” he says. “In June 2020, I started with a truck, four bins, and an idea. I initially wanted to prove the concept. I feel like I’ve It did. We grew exponentially. We rented bins in 7 counties, had 5 employees, 3 trucks, 32 bins, and a full schedule every weekday.”
Heather Parker provides “any background service he may need”.
“I’ve worked with Adam for a while,” Parker said, “and I’ve been impressed by his work ethic and his drive to grow the business. He has big ambitions and he’s going to stick to it no matter what. Wearing a tie, coming home from get off work and changing into overalls, doing whatever he needs to do for the company. Not only is he the face of the business, he’s the brains of operations, director, HR and facilitator. He can really do it all and Seems to be enjoying it.”
“I love the challenge of growing a business and seeing how it grows,” Fischer responded. “Compared to an idea I had in the spring of 2020, it’s very rewarding to see where the business is now.”
