DAVACO Services Fulfill Facilities Management Challenges

Dallas, TX, June 20, 2008 --(PR.com)-- DAVACO, Inc., the national leading provider of retail services, announced today that the company continues to respond to national retail and restaurant clients’ requests for assistance in executing high-volume initiatives in “open” stores. The company says that their current capabilities and retail/restaurant expertise, combined with their over 700 employees located across the country, makes them well-suited to execute these specialty programs for their clients, while minimizing disruption to guests.

“Many retailers don’t have their own internal team to implement special programs across their entire store fleet, so they typically have to partner with outside resources at each location. At DAVACO, we are not a facilities maintenance provider, but we do provide a better solution for those high-volume programs that impact every store. With one point of contact we make sure everything is being done correctly and consistently, coast to coast and from store to store. At DAVACO we have our own W-2 employees to assure a high-level of accountability, professionalism and quality execution,” said Rick Davis, CEO. “DAVACO’s approach is unique in that our employees are retail experts, with a unique understanding of the dynamics of working in an open-store environment.”

DAVACO can manage a wide range of high-volume facilities maintenance programs like rollouts, special projects, deferred maintenance, demolition/removal of store features, reinstallation of new store components, consolidation, demerchandising/merchandising. Projects are tracked via dedicated client portals and online reporting that includes photos, drawings and store information. The company can begin by providing an initial site survey to determine existing conditions, then utilize that information to determine scope, price and schedules to develop the most efficient and economical deployment.

“The advantage of using DAVACO to implement these programs is that we can coordinate with multiple divisions within a retail or restaurant company, so that we can execute concurrent initiatives in one store visit,” said Rick Davis. “Our employees have a variety of skills and extensive experience working with different industry segments – including specialty retail, restaurants, drug/convenience, and big box, to name a few—so we are able to assign dedicated teams that are equipped to manage any multi-unit program, no matter the scope.”
