G. Adams Restoration

Selina Kedziora, owner of G. Adams Restoration is a woman of the community. She had spent much of her time in the Philadelphia area, as a child growing up and as a young adult obtaining her Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Temple University. She has always felt that it was her duty to help embellish the community in which she was raised and to ensure that there was constant progress being made. One way she saw fit to do this was by starting a business that would upgrade her community and help current residents.

Selina found her passion for restoring blighted homes in 2003. The amazing part was that she chose to use her passion to help impact the lives of others. Selina felt that she could have a significant impact and began purchasing, rehabilitating, and reselling destroyed houses to low –income families. Selina gained valuable experience over the years and officially founded G. Adams Restoration in November 2009, a certified Woman-Owned Small Business and a Certified SBA 8(a) firm. G. Adams Restoration was built on a reputation for restoration and renovation has grown to market itself as a full-service general construction company with an expanded service base.

Selina came to the Widener Small Business Development Center (SBDC) in 2011. She was looking to procure more government contracts and sought assistance with finding opportunities. She began working with the SBDC’s government marketing consultant. Through her connection with the Widener SBDC and the PTAC program, she learned about the Bid Match service, which informed business owners about new government procurement opportunities in order to increase their revenues.

Selina has been very successful since becoming a client of the Widener SBDC. She has used PTAC resources and worked closely with her consultant for advice on a number of issues. Through her hard work she has obtained numerous contracts and has even become a qualified developer through various governmental programs including the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP). In 2014, Selina experienced sales growth of 700% and expects to top the highly sought after $1,000,000 gross sales mark in 2015, with $629,000 of that revenue stemming from contracts with the federal government. Most recently, the firm was awarded a Multiple Award Task Order (MATOC) for maintenance, repair, construction, and design build services in support of Tobyhanna Army Depot in Tobyhanna, PA.

Looking ahead, Selina wants to continue to grow her company and obtain more contracts while also maintaining her roots as someone who is not only in it for herself but for bettering communities and helping those who are truly in need, especially through the creation of new jobs.
