Why did you choose to open your business in New Ulm?
I’ve lived and serviced hair clientele in New Ulm for 10 years. It is a great place to raise a family with so many activities for kids to do. We have some amazing local restaurants and places to get together with adult friends also. I’m glad I can be another business in this community!
How has the New Ulm EDA/newulmbusiness.com helped you with your business startup?
They have been so helpful answering any questions that I had along the way and this grant helped me with remodeling my building!
Tell us something exciting about your business
We actually recycle 95% of the waste created from our services that we do here at the salon. Foils, gloves, color, wax strips and all the hair!
Have you cooperated/contracted with any other local businesses or people during your startup?
We do carry Linden soaps which are handmade in Hanska! We are always open to supporting any other small homemade products.
What advice do you have for anyone else thinking of starting a business in New Ulm?
Do it! All the local businesses are so nice if you have any questions or concerns. There are actually support groups to help you gain knowledge, too. Support local!
