Kudos to Memphis entrepreneur Gregg Overman, who has received the 2012 Memphis Rising Star Award from the Tennessee Small Business Development Center.
Overman is the owner of River City Soap Co. and was named this year’s winner because of his business success and his continued use of TSBDC services. The facility, which is located at Southwest Tennessee Community College, offers a variety of services to small business owners.
Financed with credit cards, Overman’s soap business opened in 2006 with two employees. River City now employs five, and annual revenue exceeds $1 million, the business development center said.
The company makes automotive cleaning products, floor waxes and industrial detergents for sale to business-to-business clients.
