Manos amasado panadería consigue el nuevo hogar lejos de casa
5 de mayo, 2017 por Ronda Hawkins
Gabrielle Short de Russellville ha ampliado recientemente su negocio de una operación basada en el hogar de su primera tienda, con la ayuda del Centro de Desarrollo de Pequeñas Empresas de Arkansas y Tecnología de la Universidad de Arkansas Tech.
El propietario de la panadería de amasamiento Manos compró una antigua tienda de la torta a ser el nuevo hogar de su negocio. Kneading Hands celebrated its grand opening April 29.
While selling her baked good at area farmers markets, Short began working with the center at ATU more than a year ago on a brick-and-mortar location. She received market research and one-on-one consulting while searching for a building that would be ideal for her bakery.
When The Cake Place property came on the market, Short looked to Business Consultant Ronda Hawkins for help with the purchase, the loan process, and her business setup. She received a loan from Simmons Bank.
Short continues to work with Hawkins on marketing, bookkeeping,g and other operational questions.
“The benefits of working with ASBTDC and Ronda Hawkins are more than I could begin to explain,” said Short.
“If it hadn’t for the many hours that Ronda put in helping me build a business model and financial analysis, I would not have been in the position to purchase the business when the opportunity was presented. With her help through the purchasing process, I was better prepared for all the ins and outs of running a business. I could never thank ASBTDC for all they have done for me and our business!"
Kneading Hands Bakery specializes in cupcakes, cookies, and cakes for weddings and other special occasions. Also available are pies, scones, breads, espresso, and balloons.
Ubicado en 411 En. Parkway Dr. in Russellville, the bakery stays open until 9 on Friday and Saturday evenings.
