A contractor with a real turnaround story
HECTOR RESTO'S story is one of redemption. Resto, 42, of Ardmore, turned his life around after a 2000 federal drug conviction and eight years in prison. Now on supervised release, he's president of Resto Building Services, a home-renovation and general contractor in Northern Liberties. The firm has worked on single- and multi-family buildings, restaurants and other commercial establishments, and had about $800,000 in revenue last year.
