Alpha Lion Auto Detailing

As Brian Galvan puts it, “I want to do as best of a job that I can in anything that I do.” This is why in August 2020, Galvan gave up a full time job to devote his energy to his passion – cars. Operating since November 2019, Galvan now works full time for his business, Alpha Lion Auto Detailing.

A mobile service that travels anywhere in the RGV, Alpha Lion provides services such as paint corrections, scratch and stain removal, full interior and exterior detailing for automobiles and much more. Galvan has even expanded his business to include detailing services for boats.

Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, Galvan has found that Alpha Lion has been doing well given his business model of relatively low face-to-face contact. Still, Galvan has made sure to implement certain precautionary measures such as regular sanitization, face mask requirements and cleaning procedures.

“I just always want to do whatever I can to make the people around me happy, and in the case of my business, it’s the customers,” Galvan explained. “I want to be able to talk to our customers, explain things to them and be cognizant of what that person is thinking, because some businesses don’t do that.”

Soard Solutions

John D. Franz runs his company, SOARD Solutions on four core values: Professionalism, Excellence, Integrity and Humility. It’s these values that Franz credits as allowing his drone service and pilot training business to be as successful as it is today.

By the time the first Covid-19 case was confirmed in the RGV, SOARD had been monitoring the outbreak abroad and quickly made changes to their operation.

“We are in the final stages of developing and implementing our remote learning modules,” Franz said. “All of the great training that our students were exposed to in the classroom will soon be available on their computers and mobile devices.”

SOARD Solutions has also been a key player in aiding local communities as they battle the pandemic.

“The drones we sell have been used to map out and monitor Covid testing sites, monitor social distancing, and scan crowds to identify whether any persons are showing signs of fever,” Franz explained.

While working to assist regionally in the last few months, Franz was able to reflect on key details of his business model.

“Covid has reinforced our belief that adaptability is key,” he said. “If it wasn’t for the quick thinking and open communication throughout our team, there is no way that SOARD would have been able to not only survive, but grow during this pandemic.”
