Meet The Owner - Nick Darby
Looking at the youthful face of Nicholas Darby, one's first impression might be that he is a recent high school graduate. One might also observe that he is a far cry from the stereotype of the slovenly male teenager with his impeccably ironed shirt, precision haircut and blindingly white shoes.
Darby is actually a 23-year-old Army veteran who was honorably discharged this month as a specialist promotable after serving six years in the 1st Cavalry Division. And while it is not at all uncommon for a young soldier to get out of the Army and transition into civilian life, it is rare that he has a successful small business waiting for him.
Darby has exactly that as the owner and operator of Pristine Home and Carpet Care, based in Killeen.
