Thanks to Channel 12 and Minnesota Business Magazine!

With all the excitement going on we completely forgot to give mention on this page to the two latest media outlets to feature us!

On February 12th Erica Rivera from Minnesota Business Magazine featured us in this online article here:

On Februrary 23rd Alexandra Renslo of from Channel 12 News in the Northwest Suburbs featured us on their news channel.

A huge “thank you” to Minnesota Business Magazine and Channel 12!


The first decoration has arrived.

We’re proud of our family heritage.

All combined we have some Norwegian, German, Cambodian, Chinese, and a hint of Native American.


Above all else.  We are American.  We were born and raised here in the USA.  If America didn’t exist, Tyson’s ancestors wouldn’t have come across the Atlantic from Norway and Germany.  If America didn’t exist Mary’s family wouldn’t have come across the Pacific from Cambodia.  If the United States never existed, Mary and Tyson would have never met.

So it’s fitting.  Before we brought in anything else, we brought in the United States flag.

Buckle your seat belts and hang on.  It’s going to be a fun ride!

We signed our lease!

Today, we took the plunge and signed the lease for our commercial space!

This is incredibly exciting (and scary) for us.  It’s the first big step towards opening up.  We don’t have investors, big bank loans or rich friends helping us out…It’s do or die trying!

We’ll follow up with pictures of the space and our progress as it comes along!

Skål Venn!
