The business is owned and operated by Bryan and Heather Hogan of Jonesville.
“The IDA of Lee County is anxious to assist entrepreneurs in either opening or expanding their businesses. We can provide supplemental financing to help bridge the gap between a business owner’s cash investment and their primary financing source. Bryan and Heather have invested a significant amount of their own funds into this business and we are happy to provide a portion of their financing.” stated Michael James, IDA Director.
The proceeds of the transaction will be used to purchase inventory for the business as well as some minor renovations to the store location at 41829 East Morgan Avenue (next door to the IGA Supermarket). “We appreciate the IDA’s help in securing this financing,” stated Bryan Hogan, one of the proprietors. “We are now open to the public and can transform your helmet, fender or gunstock with hundreds of possible designs.”
