As I was walking through Lowes Home improvement hardware aisle, I notice these containers on the shelf in which you can hold and store hardware. I also notice the little American flag on the plastic container which caught my attention. I had to go and look up for more information on this company named Buddeez Manufacturing. Of course the first thing I notice was a picture of Buddeez Flying the American Flag. I read further and was interested in the history and all the products they manufacturer. One of the products I actually use to store my dog food.
Buddeez Manufacturing is a nationally recognized plastic injection molding company. Their employees have a combined 200 years of experience in molding and tooling. Some of their certifications include NSF Compliant Facility, certified Walmart Global Secure Facility, Approved co-packer for Mars Pet Care and others. Buddeez Manufacturing building is a 75000 square foot of warehousing. It is located near interstate 44 and interstate 70 where they can bring materials in and finished products out, according to their about us on their website.
If you read their about us page you can also learn that Charlie Hall had a vision. ” Make good American Made Products that people can really use. Make them well – make them here – make them affordable.” Another example of a great American business who had a vision and proudly flying the American flag.
A vision is how most businesses start. One person with an idea can solve a problem, start a new trend or improve your life. This is what makes America great, the freedom to have a vision and guts to implement it. Great companies like Buddeez should inspire others to start a company and make something in this great U.S.A. like they did.

Fazzio Has Almost Everything
Fazzio started some years ago with just a house and a small building. The founder would buy from companies that were going out of business mostly hardware and industrial businesses. He would simple resell that product. After years of growing it was very common for one to say try Fazzio’s they have almost everything.
I believe I heard though others who know the founder that he really had a small farm and sold produce. Joseph had a vision, most people in that area had farms so he had a vision to buy from used and new products from hardware stores and resell sell it. Read a good article in inc.com about vision. Like Joseph he had a vision but he executed it.
I was in El Paso,Texas again for a few weeks. As I was there we stop at a Steak restaurant. As we pulled up to the restaurant the first thing I notice was American Flags flying in the outside dining area. I took some pictures of the outside area. We walked inside and order a steak burger because it was just too hot outside in Texas in July. Original Great American Steak are know for their steaks and steak burgers. I ordered their well known steak burger, and to my surprise I was served a juicy burger with a little American flag.
If you go to their web site www.originalgreatamerican.com you can read their about us page where you can learn how they are family own company and their company history. While you are on their website look at their menu. If you are in the area check them out, very good food with a great view.
A great place for family, great food and a great view from the Franklin Mountains.
I can drive around and see many diners with American Flags flying but usually not restaurants. I only have one post of a diner flying the American flag because I was just starting to post American Flag Sighting and that was a diner near my home town
Just another example of a great American business and proud enough to fly American flag. well in this case flying many American Flags.
Driving along Route 26 headed to the beaches in Delaware I noticed all the American flags Flying in front of businesses not because it’s Fourth of July but because these businesses fly proudly all year long.
From small a small Deli named Ocean view Deli to condo’s I passed by the usually flag flying businesses like fast food restaurants, car lots and Banks. But I love seeing the hundreds of other small businesses of American Flags along Route 26. I wish I could stop and get a history of their business. How they got started and what or who inspired them.
You know the old saying, want to buy beach front property in the desert? Well what about a boat business in the desert? As I was at Elephant Butte, New Mexico I notice another business proudly flying their American flag. there in the middle of vast miles of New Mexico’s terrain ( desert is what it looks like to me) sits a small boat business.
Boating is popular at the Elephant Butte reservoir so somebody had had to start a business for boat repairs and marine shop. See the flag proudly flying at this business?
An Inspiration quote from Michael Jordan
“I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life and that is why I succeed.” –Michael Jordan, NBA Legendary Basketball MVP
