About the Owner: Michael Di Marzo
The name Blue Wagon comes from the company's humble beginnings when the owner, Michael Di Marzo, started cutting grass for neighbors as a young boy with a small blue wagon. As he grew older and the business expanded, the blue wagon evolved into trucks, but the company kept the name to honor its roots and the hard work and dedication that went into building it. When you hire Blue Wagon, you become a part of the company's story by supporting a local student-owned business while receiving top-quality service and a lasting commitment to your satisfaction.
