Founders

Joseph McClure

What educational, entrepreneurial or business development programs, if any, have you taken advantage of?
None, so far.

Who was your first customer and where did you find them?
Bars, only place we knew to look and who would give us a shot, a bit more free spirited compared to the grocery industry.

Where did you find your first employee?
Sam Nason, long time family friend looking for a job.

Have you promoted an intern to employee status, and if so how many times have you done it
This will be our first summer having an intern.

Where have you turned to find capital to grow your company and which institutions have provided it?
Home equity loan for $50,000. We are currently looking for institutional help.

What could local leaders do to help attract and retain more entrepreneurial young people to Metro Detroit?
Some sort of incubators specific to the industry. For instance food, Eastern Market's development of an incubator kitchen.

What advice would you give to someone who was thinking about opening a business here?
Good time and location to open up a business, space and opportunity are available if the ideas and funding are there. The ground floor seems to be the best place to start.
