A husband-and-wife team purchased luxury portable bathroom business The Oval Office Mobile Luxury Restrooms, Inc.

Nick and Kimberly Rocca flushed out a deal with previous owners Brian and Courtney Risinger to take over the mobile restroom company aimed at catering weddings, fundraisers, birthdays parties, and more.

“The demand here in Fresno is more than I had expected before I started to investigate into what this business is to the Valley,” Nick Rocca said. “I think it has to do with a lot of how closely tight knit our community is and how much they love to have events, whether they’re indoors or outdoors.”

What Makes a Portable Bathroom Luxurious?

Rocca says the bathrooms are like those in homes.

“They are air-conditioned, private, and clean,” Rocca said. The trailers are equipped with porcelain toilets, mirrors, granite countertops, and running water.

The bigger trailers have two men’s rooms and two women’s rooms.

Rocca emphasizes how clean they are kept, saying it’s a way of setting an event apart.

“When it’s a 100-and-something degrees outside, it ends up being a subconscious relief you don’t have to sit inside of a hot box and go to the restroom,” Rocca said.

Rocca Expands to Central Coast, Eyes Arizona

Rocca’s wife, Kimberly, first became acquainted with The Oval Office through her event planning business, Kimberly Joy Events + Design.

Rocca is a farmer by trade, growing grapes and a boutique pumpkin patch called Dakota Acres.

Rocca said she would contract with the previous owners regularly for the corporate events and weddings she organized.

“We jokingly called it a vertically integrated business model. It kind of went with the brand,” Rocca said.

They have 10 Oval Office trailers, and Rocca says they are in the midst of expanding to the Central Coast.

In five years’ time, he’d like to also be in Arizona, with 10 trailers for each market.

The business the Risingers built has kept the new owners busy. They were sold out every weekend of May and even some days during the week, Rocca said.

“The reputation that Brian has built of this business over the last 10 years” has propelled the Roccas to a fast start, he said.

“And so, you know, we show up. And so it’s been wildly busy. I’ll say that for sure.”
