According to IBISWorld, a leader in providing business information since 1971, the snow plow services is a 14 billion dollar a year industry!
There are almost 300,000 people who make their living removing ice. That doesn’t count those who do it a side cash job or just to help out, but actually employed as snow removal professionals.
