Owner Jimmy Banks got his start in the septic business with another company. He worked hard until he could afford to buy his own pump truck, and then started doing his own work on the side. He started out doing septic tanks, and eventually made enough money to quit his job and strike out on his own. Working out of his mother's house, he built a name for himself in septic tanks.
It wasn't too long before Jimmy decided he wanted to get into portable toilets as well. He knew someone in Arkansas who was willing to give him 16 toilets on credit. Jimmy borrowed his brother's trailer and hauled them back to Tyler. The man who gave him the toilets believed he would never get paid for them, but of course Jimmy eventually did.
Growth was slow at first. Without an advertising budget, virtually all of Jimmy's work came from referrals. There were days where he would check the phone cord to make sure he could still receive calls. He took jobs wherever he could get them. But once the word got out about the quality of his services, business picked up.
With only three portable toilet companies in the area at that time, there was plenty of opportunity for growth. With more than $16,000 of business done in the first year alone, they grew quickly. 16 portable toilets eventually turned into more than 1,000. Jimmy expanded into grease and grit traps, and started bidding on projects for churches, fast food restaurants, and other restaurants.
AAA Sanitation had enough capital by 1992 to grow into concrete and utility services. They were established enough to get their own bonding, and started bidding on multi-million dollar projects.
Today, the company employs 38 East Texans. Jimmy attributes to the success of his company to the excellence of his employees and the support of his loving wife, Flora.
