New York City Small Business Services
features Snappy Solutions
Meet Maureen Fairlie, the founder and owner of Snappy Solutions, Inc., a New York City certified Women-Owned Business Enterprise (WBE) supply company that is growing through NYC government contracting and supporting NYC.
After years of working in the industry, and with an entrepreneurial spirit, Ms. Fairlie began her business in 2006 selling janitorial supplies. Two years after beginning her business, she decided to get certified. With WBE certification, Snappy Solutions has won multiple contracts with the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), the Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR), the New York City Police Department (NYPD), the Fire Department of the City of New York (FDNY), the Department of Correction (DOC), the Department of Transportation (DOT), the Office of Chief Medical Examiner (OCME), and the Department of Investigation (DOI).
This alone has propelled Snappy Solutions' business to new heights; expanding their services to include sourcing industrial, water treatment, construction, maintenance, and safety supplies.
As an LGBTQ+ New Yorker, "I tell people it took me 9 years to become an overnight success. Meaning it took 9 years to make our first million dollars in sales. That’s 9 years of a lot of hard work, right and wrong turns, and staying in the ring no matter how tough the fight."
As a firm believer of the assistance provided by SBS, Ms. Fairlie has some thoughts for vendor’s interested in becoming certified:
“Do It! You have everything to gain and nothing to lose. Sign up for every class and every event. SBS has been an invaluable asset to Snappy Solutions, Inc. Their educational programs helped launch us into new levels of success. SBS is a support system for M/WBE firms. They are always there to provide guidance and direction and to get you in front of the right people. Put the power of SBS behind you!”
