Kera detailed some of her vision for Zing Rental to The City Menus.
“I want my business to be a full service event rental company,” says Kera. “I want to expand the company into other departments including DJs, event planners, hair stylists, bartenders, party buses, limos, speakers, stages, porta potty and showers, photography, catering, and more.”
Kera notes that she wants Zing Rental to be a full-service rental company with a full staff. She hopes to assemble and train a full team to operate the business, as well as help team members gain valuable professional experience.
Kera also says she hopes to be able to give back to her community through Zing Rental.
“I want to be able to provide happiness and fulfillment in giving back within my family, church, and community,” says Kera. “I will have annual programs sponsored by Zing Rental. Family will include my employees. I want to provide annual retreats for my employees to enjoy. By department, they will enjoy a weekend getaway.”
Kera also plans to take Zing Rental’s services across the nation.
“My ultimate goal is to have a warehouse for the full service event rental company in each region of the United States including Texas, Colorado, Illinois, Maine, and Georgia,” says Kera. “I will be adding small amounts of real estate investing into the company. All the properties will be for Zing Rental’s benefits and usage for more revenue not like normal a real estate company that buys and sells houses. At each location, I want to include event spaces and vacation rental house. I want rental properties as well for a program that. I am creating and very passionate about: Zingless Program. This program will be focused on homeless people and house them, give them a job, and mentor them into their fullest potential.”
