Grand Opening of Rick’s Kustom Design, a Two-in-One Opportunity!
Grant City, MO – Capitalizing on his talent for design, Owner Rick Frese is opening a double opportunity in one location in Grant City, Missouri. The two-in-one business features Kool Kollectibles, which is the half of the store offering a wide variety of antiques and collectibles. The other half is Kustom Design which specializes in vinyl work, screen printing and custom metal work and more. Here Rick will offer signs, banners, truck lettering, vehicle magnets, decals, wall lettering, mailbox wraps, barn quilts, vehicle wraps, vinyl T shirts transfers and four color screen printing.
Rick says,” I wanted the opportunity to work closer to home. I was already doing my custom metal works and adding the screen printing and vinyl equipment. It all fell together naturally. I needed a space to store all my antique and collections so the space on the square in Grant City allowed me to piece it all together and be able to offer the community two new businesses in one location.”
His biggest challenge was that in opening two very different types of businesses, he had to find the balance of giving each the attention it deserved to get up and running. He says, “I just make a daily priority list and worked those items and then started fresh with a new list the next day.” Rick used the services of Keli Morris of Northwest Missouri Enterprise Facilitation to get some marketing advice.
