Business Services, Inc. owner Dale Oestreich (pronounced “A-Strike”) has more than 41 years of entrepreneurial experience with developing businesses. His journey to date involves several companies that he built, bought, grew and sold.
American Delivery Service (ADS)
Founded in 1979, Dale created his courier company that was named number 226 by Inc. magazine’s “Top 500” fastest growing closely-held corporations in the U.S. in 1987. ADS was the recipient of the United States Chamber of Commerce Blue Chip award, and Dale was named “Small Business Person of the Year” by the Small Business Association in 1994. ADS was sold in 2001 to First Choice company.
Office Supplies, Etc.
While managing ADS, Dale created this business supply and printing company, which was ultimately sold and merged with Finley’s Office Supplies, Etc. in 1985.
Dale developed this warehouse distribution and third-party logistics business following the sale of Office Supplies, Etc. The company was sold to TAGG Logistics in 2006.
Franchise Business Services
Dale established his company in 2006 to provide a sales and marketing resource to small and medium-sized franchisors. He closed this business to fully focus his efforts on Precision Restorations.
Created in 2008, Dale’s company provided restoration and customization for antique, vintage and classic cars and trucks. Dale invested $150K in Precision Restorations—which was the result of another restoration company going into foreclosure—to provide the highest level of quality craftsmanship and total customer satisfaction. He developed the business based upon processes, procedures, planning and production. The company was sold in 2021.
