Jonathan Bucci


At 24, Jonathan Bucci has learned firsthand one of most important things for entrepreneurs to remember: success doesn’t come overnight. Apex Property Restoration LLC, which started out as a door-to-door side business is reportedly nearing annual revenue of $500,000. Bucci, who recently won the Governor’s Young Entrepreneur Award, says the next goal is to hit $1 million in sales.

Bucci’s achievements came with patience and perseverance. The young entrepreneur, who also owns Inari Industries and Bucci Studios, says his overall business approach is like a steady drum.

“I internally understand that nothing can be rushed. Any goal worth having, especially in business, is ironed out piece by piece over—usually—a very long period of time,” he says. “The trick is to stay focused and never sway.”

Bucci is a sports devotee who earned six letters at Barron Collier, where he was varsity football captain.
