George Betancourt, Owner
Grout Busters – South Hillsborough County and Manatee County

Hello, my name is George Betancourt. I am the owner/operator of two Grout Buster territories. I started working for David smith in 2004. I was an employee of the company for 10 years until I decided to open my own territories. I purchased south Hillsborough County, then the next year Manatee County. There are so many plus sides to being your own boss with this line of work! I hired friends and family, I make a very decent living with only a high school diploma, and most important I get much needed quality time with my wife and three children.

I would also like to add that David Smith gave me the opportunity that I am forever grateful for. He has been a great role model and mentor. Anytime I have a question about anything he’s only one call away. I urge anyone that wants to get out of that dead end 9-5 to at least look into the benefits that come with owning a small business such as Grout Busters. For the owner/operator it’s pretty much a plug and play system. You learn the art and everything else is set up for you to utilize.

I am a very proud Grout Buster owner!

Kelly Beaver, Owner
Grout Busters – Savannah, Georgia

I joined Grout Busters in 1995 as an owner. The experience has been extremely gratifying. The support from David and Travis Smith is phenomenal. We are a team and are all working toward the same goal: pleasing each customer while building an ongoing relationship with residual income.

Mark Liptak, Owner
Grout Busters – Lakeland, FL

I have a four-year degree in engineering from a military college and have worked for several large companies in the Northeast for the past ten years. A few years ago, I decided to work for myself so I can have more control over my future and the ability to spend more time with my family. My dad and two brothers live in Florida and own their own business as well. My brother told me about the company expanding into Polk County. My brother and I met with David Smith to talk about Grout Busters. Three years later, my Grout Busters business is doing GREAT! David and his son, Travis, have been there every step of the way. Never having owned a business before, I feel that I am blessed to find a person and business with both honesty and integrity. If you are looking for a business with low startup cost and low overhead take a closer look at the opportunity of joining Grout Busters. You won’t regret it.
