In 1994 Steve Shook was laid off from his job with a contractor. He decided to get some business cards printed so he could solicit work on his own. “I didn’t have an idea for a business name, but it had to be short because you paid by the letter,” he laughed.
Rarco Contracting was born. The name reflects the business, Repair and Renovation Company.
Rarco Contracting is the Hardy County Chamber of Commerce 2020 Small Business of the Year.
The company started in Alexandria, Va. and 12 years later Rarco was doing $3.5 million annually in revenue.
