Dedicated to the business community, the Chamber and Economic Partnership (CEP) unifies local business leaders to connect, learn, and gain insight on their individual company tactics and strategies. One of the ways this is achieved is through their exCEPtional Mornings breakfast held each month for all partners. On the third Wednesday of each month the breakfast features a speaker to address issues in business on a local, national, and regional level.

Joel Raney was this month’s guest speaker for the event, and was honored to speak on behalf of Raney’s Inc. to share our story and overall growth through the years! Starting out in two Jim Walter’s Model Homes with a team of four, it was easy to keep the culture light and fun. Now, seven years later with over fifty employees, Raney’s has been able to maintain its same awesome company culture and work atmosphere, which Joel explains is due to our deep-rooted core values. Joel showed his fellow CEP partners videos of our customers and behind the scenes of our team, proving that customer service has remained our number one priority and that our mission statement and core values have not changed.

Through passion and happiness shared with our customers and employees, we have kept our Raney’s spirit alive, and thanks to the CEP, we were able to share our story and inspire other business leaders in Ocala. Do you want to see more of our culture and a behind the scenes look at some of our customers?  check us out here to discover all the fun we have at Raney’s!
