Mr. Poronga exists and is in the United States

We tell you the story of Federico, who created a business with a very particular name.

Argentines around the world

It started as a joke and ended up being a prolific business. Federico Muñoz is a Mendoza who emigrated to Detroit, Michigan, 15 years ago with his parents and siblings, and created a plumbing company. His venture would have nothing particular if it were not for the name he chose to baptize him: Mr. Oh, Poronga.
“ Mr. Poronga uncovers it to you... and also the plumbing,” says the advertising slogan that can be heard on local radios. According to Federico, it all started as a joke between him and his brother. Soon, they realized that the drain cleaning business was very lucrative in that city, and they launched themselves with everything. Today they have 5 vans and 8 people working for them.
While most customers have no idea what that strange name means, they were pleased to play with Argentinian irony far from home.

Lol, Creo que no usó cualquier otra palabra por el gran número de gente hispanohablante en EEUU para ser más sútil. En mi familia usamos esa palabra para que los demás no entiendan.

Puede ser una falta de respeto del “groncho argentino” pero para hacer negocios en el sistema capitalista hay que ser creativo. Incluso da trabajo a 8 personas. Prefiero que en argentina todos tengan nombres “gronchos”y no que hagan lo que hacen en Loma negra por ejemplo, empresa de comercial del plata en donde presentan balances con suculentas ganancias y a sus empleados le dan 4.000 pesos y esperan la ayuda del gobierno. Eso es realmente una falta de respeto. “El groncho”Argentino es el ventajero, no el que pone nombres graciosos.
