Verizon Small Business Customer: Top Star International

Employee Emeritus Employee Emeritus ‎09-04-2015 09:01 PM

With summer just around the corner, people’s thoughts turn to vacation and travel. As an avid traveler myself, I was eager to speak with Leo Zheng, owner of Top Star International in Flushing, N.Y., about his business, how he got his start and how Verizon’s small business services help him run his agency.


Leo’s firm can book airline tickets, cruises or tours to anywhere. He gets many of his customers the best packages to Asia or Europe – the most popular destinations.


Located in the heart of a diverse neighborhood, Leo is proud to serve his customers in both Chinese and English. He added that, while he advertises his business in local papers, he gets most of his customers by referrals.


During my visit, Top Star International’s phones were ringing off the hook, and Leo’s team was constantly online to check the latest packages and prices. It was clear that reliable voice service and a fast Internet connection from

Verizon were crucial in helping Leo operate his business.


Leo shares more about his travel agency and what sets his business apart in this video.


Verizon's Customer: Eddie's Custom Cleaners

My colleague, Bob Elek, recently met with Richie Alverio, owner of Eddie's Custom Cleaners in Tampa, FL. Richie gave Bob a tour of his facility and how his business handles the cleaning and pressing of clothes. I found it facinating, but don't take my word for it - check out the video.


Richie also shares how Verizon FiOS Quantum Internet helps him run his business better, allowing for the ease of tracking customers' orders and more.


Small Business Ready is more than a catchy phrase at Verizon - it's a commitment to helping our customers achieve their goals.


Verizon's Small Biz Customer: !melk

I enjoy meeting Verizon’s small business customers and learning about their business. I’m especially interested in how they got started, what sets them apart and how they are using Verizon’s small business services to help them run their business.

My visit to !melk, a landscape architecture and urban design practice, was delightful. Located in downtown Manhattan, the environment was open, bright and fun.  Jerry Van Eyck, the owner, met me with a sparkle in his eyes and a friendly smile. His team of architects and designers were welcoming and eager to show off some of their latest designs.

They depend on the fast speed of FiOS Internet as they share their blue prints, 3-D models and files with their clients and prospects. Verizon’s speedy, reliable services enable the team at !melk to focus on being creative, and Jerry to focus on running his business.

Check out Jerry’s interview to learn about !melk’s projects in NYC, Las Vegas and around the world.
