In 2017, Kevin East, the owner of Ambassador Transportation Corporation asked “you helped us to purchase this business a few years ago, how about helping us expand?” Community Futures Strathcona thought, why not?
Kevin East has decades of experience in customer service and since acquiring Ambassador Transportation in 2010 has grown the business to include eight vehicles and eight transport plates capable of providing service throughout Vancouver Island. Recently the business has recognized the demand for small groups to experience unique outings throughout the Comox Valley and Mr. East has created special events that include Sip and Savour Tours, Wine Time Tours, and Brews Cruise Tours. Each event is offered weekly throughout the summer and includes stops at local wineries, breweries, and award winning restaurants.
Community Futures not only got our business off to a great start but it provided the support needed to build a great base to raise a family in a new community. It is seven years now and our business has grown from 3 employees to 15 employees and counting. Thank-you Community Futures. Kevin East – Ambassador Transportation
