Coast View Plumbing’s Story
Coast View Plumbing is a Woman-Owned, Small Business in the Construction Industry that is operated by Rickie Moore, the surviving wife of Tom Moore. Tom and business partner, Robert Flick, originally owned and operated the business. Tom later bought Robert out, and became the sole proprietor until early in 2010.
Tom was a very charismatic, and capable owner who brought his best self to his work for his clients everyday. In February of 2010, Tom suffered a massive heart attack, and passed away. Rickie Moore took over the business under much duress at the time. It was a large learning curve, and the road was not simple nor easy. But thanks to all of the wonderful people Rickie has had the pleasure of meeting, and working with along this journey, it has been extremely rewarding.
