Central Wisconsin Business Gives Back to Community
Providing residential, commercial, and agricultural solutions, central Wisconsin’s Mound View Garage Doors is a local expert on garage door installation & service. Thanks to them, Wildwood Zoo is enjoying new garage doors.
“We started Mound View three years ago,” said Trudy Perlick, co-owner with husband, Ben. “Another company from Neillsville that did garage doors was closing and the opportunity presented itself to start our company up.”
The small business currently has two full time installers, with a third one starting soon. Ben, who grew up working with his dad who was a self employed pole barn builder, does estimates and the sales for the company, as well as installs and service calls.
Last summer, the family was at Wildwood Zoo in Marshfield when they noticed that the garage doors were in poor shape.
“Ben reached out to the zoo looking to see if they were interested in replacing them and if we could offer a labor donation to get them fixed up or replaced,” said Trudy. The offer was accepted and Mound View replaced both doors in the Ludwig buildings as well as one door that is attached to the bear exhibit.
“Our kids love the zoo. We are thankful for such a wonderful public zoo,” said Trudy. “Doing the doors is just a way for us to say ‘thank you’ for all that they do to provide a fun place for the community to enjoy.”
With roots in Central Wisconsin – Trudy and Ben’s three children are the fourth generation to live on the same land – the Perlick family is happy to give back to the community they love.
“We want to be able to help maintain and grow the community so our kids, and other families, can have the same great life we had growing up, if not perhaps better,” said Trudy. “Owning a business gives us a bigger opportunity to help serve in that way. Giving back is a way to say thank-you to our customers for making us who we are today. We’d like to thank the Wildwood Zoo for allowing us to be a part of this project, and all they do for the community.”
