By PRWEB | Simi Valley, California May 09, 2013 Coast to Coast founder continues success by partnering with new company dedicated to helping people.
Coast to Coast Computer Products has generated its financial success
and consistent growth through giving people second chances. At Coast
to Coast many of the employees are former convicts and recovering
addicts. Giving people second chances and changing lives has paid off
through the years. Currently Coast to Coast distributes over 50 million
dollars a year of ink and toner products to corporate accounts
nationwide, employs 200 people, and has shown growth 26 of the 27 years
they have been in business.
CEO and founder of Coast to Coast Computer Products, is no stranger to
addiction himself. Roussin created Coast to Coast when he was 24 years
old and only 60 days clean from drugs and alcohol. In 1985 when Roussin
created Coast to Coast he decided to give people with pasts similar to
his own an opportunity. He provides his employees with the best
compensation plan in the industry while creating a culture dedicated to
the personal growth of each person. New hires are often found through
half way houses and are put through rigorous training and coaching, with
many of them coming out on top.
started working at Coast to Coast in 2009 and like many of her
coworkers is a modern day rags to riches story. When Henrich started
she was 37 years old, on food stamps and living in her parents’ house
with her 10 year old daughter. Henrich now makes nearly a quarter of a
million dollars a year, purchased her first home, has a 401k and drives
“I myself was strung out on drugs and alcohol at a young age. My own
road to recovery taught me that many talented, good people might end up
down the wrong path and deserve a second and sometimes a third or
fourth chance,” said Roussin. “People who may be caught up now need to
know there is a solution and hope for them too. Of course there is a
risk associated with hiring people with a tainted past, however overall
the good far outweighs the bad.”
Coast to Coast isn’t Roussin’s only venture committed to making a difference. In 2011 Roussin partnered with Jenifer Rose
to create It’s My Community Store, an office supply company that
donates up to 10% of every order back to the charity of the customers
choosing. It’s My Community Store is located in Northern Nevada but
supplies customers and partners with charities across the nation.
“Rick has a highly motivational, positive attitude, with a
don’t-quit-until-you-win expectation and amazing energy level. I’ve
actually never seen anyone like him,” said Rose, CEO of It’s My
Community Store. “Rick has been successful in helping people stay clean
and sober and now we plan to be successful at raising money for
charities through a product category businesses are already buying every
day. We are excited to provide continued support to our elderly, our
sick children, our veterans and thru the many wonderful causes that
During the development of It’s My Community Store Rose
knew that Roussin would be the perfect partner. When she was ready to
launch, Rose made the phone call and Roussin did not hesitate to help
build another company that would change people’s lives.
With the help of Roussin, It’s My Community Store has been very
successful in its first year. Now the company offers more than eight
thousand products and gives back to more than 67 non-profits in five
states. Rose says the company is continuing to grow and reach across the
country helping more and more people every day and continues to win
bids from large companies like the Non Profit Purchasing Group (NPPG), a national buying group containing over 800 members.
“It is no longer about a Post-it note or a toner cartridge, it’s
about that same Post-it note, helping a child with cancer or a veteran
get the help they need,” said Rose.
“We’ve helped a lot of people stay clean and sober at Coast to Coast,
we are experiencing great success and plan to continue for years to
come. I’m excited at the opportunity to grow a second company committed
to giving back,” said Roussin.
Roussin is committed to giving people second chances and helping them
stay clean and sober, while Rose is committed to creating a steady
revenue stream for charities across the country. Two people partnered
together to build companies that are based on the simple principle of
supporting people and communities.
