Then: Owner, The Greek Corner
Now: Owner, The Greek Corner Screen Printing and Embroidery
Jason Parke is still owner of screen printing and embroidery business The Greek Corner, but the size and scope of the company is sure different.
In the last four years, Parke has executed two acquisitions, and one nearly doubled his company’s employees and revenue. His acquisition of Bigfish Screenprinting LLC closed Jan. 1, but not stopping there, by March, he finalized the purchase of a 17,000-square-foot production plant.
“It has been a crazy couple of months,” Parke says.
He’ll move in the staff and integrate all of Bigfish’s operations by April 2.
Also since 2014, his company is a two-time finalist for Small Business of the Year by the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce and Parke is a Leadership Springfield graduate.
Personally, he’s since been to Montreal, Canada – twice on mission trips with Ridgecrest Baptist. A third mission trip took him to Yasothon, Thailand.
On Oct. 27, Convoy of Hope dedicated its new 250,000-square-foot distribution center and broke ground on its next project: a 200,000-square-foot headquarters and training center, which will be connected to the distribution center by a skywalk.
