VanNatta added “I just want to pass on a healthy business to my son. “My goal in the next couple of years is to make sure that we’re still doing the right things to make him successful moving forward. With Amazon Business, I’m finding items at significant savings—for example, I recently bought latex gloves for pizzamaking and saved a bundle—and I get things delivered faster with Business Prime.”
