Buzzazz and now its sister company Local Search Force were incubated in a 3,000+ orders per week telephone company owned by the Kintzel brothers in the 1990s. Although they were actively engaged at that time with their telecom company, they had the foresight to envision the early advantages of playing a game within the wonderful world of the web.
Their early inspiration came from the frustration of being able to locate decent local web design vendors.
After spending close to ten thousand dollars on a few websites for themselves, they decided to start their own company to offer a better service than what they were able to find. So like many ventures, Buzzazz began with a simple decision to build a better mousetrap and then offer this service to other business owners as a tool that could help them expand as well.
Prior to launching Buzzazz, the Kintzel brothers had started their business careers together in 1987 directly out of college with the help of their Father selling airplanes throughout Southern California. Those early days turned out to be very educational for them as they went on to launch and build a ten million dollar per year telecom company called Buzz Telecom/Business Options. Their telecom company was licensed throughout the United States as a “Switchless Long Distance Carrier”. It had a similar purpose to provide quality telecom service to small, medium and large Corporations such as “Tootsie Roll” in downtown Chicago and across the nation to help the businesses have more money for their bottom line.
BROTHERS & PARTNERS
The Kintzel’s varied & successful background within the world of direct sales provided a tremendous “launching” pad for their activities. Even today, Keanan and Kurtis Kintzel continue to work together expanding a very successful Internet Marketing company they founded together in 1999.
As far as they are concerned, there will always be a need for the American entrepreneurial spirit that helped them assist hundreds of thousands of American businesses and consumers save money for the valuable commodity of communications. As long as they are able, they will continue to help the American economy continue to lead the world in productivity.
And that is exactly what Buzzazz and the Kintzels have done the past ten plus years. They flourished in childhood, as young adult businessmen and throughout their entire business careers. Their current plans dwarf anything and everything they have accomplished to date. Stay tuned, the training and technologies they have created and implemented into their services, along with their strong purpose to help other businesses thrive are creating new ways of helping others succeed that will help President Trump achieve his overall goal of Make America Great.
From airplanes, they evolved into direct sales of other merchandise and products. From 1992 to 2006 for almost fifteen years they successfully sold large volumes of telecom services as a nationwide switchless long distance carrier. At one point, their enterprise consisted of helping consumers with low cost long distance telephone service, real estate brokering of homes on contract for those with credit troubles, and digital marketing for businesses.
With the 2005 beginning of a large recession that affected most of America, it also had a deep impact upon the Kintzels business too. As the world of telephone service transitioned to cell phone technologies, and the implosion of the real estate markets, they made the decision to focus on their best asset which was helping other businesses expand through digital marketing. Buzzazz has and continues to help thousands of businesses with their marketing needs.
During that recession and transition period of mid 2000’s, there was great turmoil throughout America and the rest of the world. The Kintzels were not immune and negotiated out of their real estate holdings and sold their telecom client base too. Unfortunately, some of the real estate relationships and the Telecom buyer decided to not honor agreements (written copies are available as needed) and failed to pay key vendors and suppliers which created a very bad effect for all.
In 2006 while generating 3000+ customers per week, the Kintzel’s sold its telecm customer billing base. The new owner routed all customer service lines to a voicemail system that was never checked or calls returned, which created nearly 2,000 complaints with th e FCC and state public utility commissions. This regulatory issue took several years to sort out, which was accomplished by providing the FCC with tape recordings of every customer purchaing the service by answering a 25 question verification script.
It is an unfortunate part of the internet that people and organizations and news outlets are allowed to put forth a mixture of sometimes verified and sometimes not verified truths and lies. And sometimes in an unverified manner or without appropriate response. We see this now more than ever, and whether you agree or dont agree with President Trump, he definitely has a valid point about all of the current “Fake News” being put forth by the media merchants of chaos in an awkward at best attempt to sell more ad revenues.
Since graduating from Arizona State University and Indiana University in 1987, Keanan and Kurtis Kintzels purpose of helping businesses and communities thrive has never wavered. While pursuing this objective over the past three decades together, quite an accomplishment in itself, they have certainly encountered their share of success and failures. As most people can attest, the road to one’s dreams is normally strewn with a variety of interesting stories created along the way.
Since 1987 the Kintzels have employed thousands of productive American citizens, sold & delivered millions in various services, and strived to make society better wherever they could. As time marches on, the good works that our company and executives and owners have done will continue to be celebrated.
Kurtis Kintzels lifetime passion for helping youth baseball as a coach and tournament organizer (www.bombsquadtournaments.com) is well documented. He has assisted thousands of midwestern youth achieve some of their athletic dreams. Some of his former athletes are now enjoying collegiate and professional careers.
Not only did Kurtis Kintzel help these kids with their sport, he also constantly educated them on the potential travails of drug abuse.
He consistently and generously provided the www.drugfreeworld.org materials to his teams and tournaments with the sole purpose of helping the kids grow up without the negative effects of a drug induced life.
Keanan Kintzel has always had a philanthropic bent. While a member of Phi Delta Theta at ASU, Keanan was House Manager and Chairman of Philanthropic activities. That particular year, even though PDT members were normally known for athletics, they also brought home the inter fraternity trophy for philanthropics. Whether fundraising for the repair of the Statue of Liberty or educating fellow citizens on various issues at hand, if you probe very far you will easily discover that community involvement is at the top of his priority list.
He is an active member of Concerned Businessmen’s Alliance of Tampa Bay, the Clearwater Chamber of Commerce, The Cleveland Street Business Alliance, The Downtown Clearwater Development Board and an active member of his church donating large amounts of time and money to social betterment campaigns. One example is www.youthforhumanrights.org which helps educate society on the travesty of human trafficking, copyright infringement, etc.
