Lake and Land making magic in Florida
Lake and Land Construction, a disability-owned business enterprise (DOBE) based in Florida has recently experienced business opportunities at the most magical place on earth… Walt Disney World. Lake and Land is a unique construction company because they are experienced in commercial, marine and heavy timber construction. The father and son team of Neil and Bryan Melick have worked hard to solicit and secure business with Disney Parks and Resorts. Neil credits his DOBE certification as a major factor to becoming recognized as a diverse supplier.
“Having our DOBE certification gave us the leverage to compete as a diverse supplier,” said Neil Melick, President, Lake and Land Construction. “We still have to solicit the business, network and provide competitive bids, but certification has played a major role in having the door to Disney open for us.”
