Press Release Summary: Oakwood Center announces the opening of four additional businesses in the Portage County Business Park

Press Release Body: Stevens Point, WI – (March 13, 2008) – The Veranda, The Pink Boutique, Designers II and Stodola-Maas Construction are open for business in Oakwood Center in the Portage County Business Park.

The Veranda is a cafe and coffeehouse that offers sandwiches, soups, salads, a kids’ menu, local microbrew beers, Wisconsin wines, a Friday fish fry and a number of healthy choice items. The Veranda is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and also offers live music and features many area performers. It is owned and operated by Mark and Kristine Klish of Almond, Wis.

The Pink Boutique is a women’s clothing store and is owned by Jaime Stepan and Melissa Kedrowicz. The Pink Boutique specializes in women’s fashion services and offers designer denim, dresses, tops and tees, purses, belts and other accessories. The store opened in 2005 and was previously located on the Highway 10 east corridor in Stevens Point.

Designers II is a design studio specializing in residential and commercial interior design. Owned by Gayle Geiger and Marsha Sowle, Designers II was previously located in downtown Stevens Point for 25 years. In addition to its design services, it offers furniture, wall coverings, window shades, draperies and accessories.

Stodola-Maas Construction is a construction services provider specializing in negotiated, design/build and construction management solutions. The company is headquartered in Fond du Lac and has offices in Green Bay and Hazelhurst, Wis., in addition to its new Stevens Point office. Established in 1988, the company specializes in commercial, industrial and multi-family construction. Jessie Johnson is director of business development and oversees operations at the Stevens Point office.

According to John Schultz, principal owner of the Oakwood Center business park and a local financial advisor, the latest round of business openings at Oakwood Center affirms the popularity of the business park’s collaborative model.

“We provide tenants with shared resources and technology to help control costs and support business growth. With our continued strong leasing performance and the very positive feedback we’ve received, we firmly believe that we’re offering something that businesses value,” Schultz said.

Schultz said the Oakwood Center business park model is especially popular with entrepreneurs and small businesses because by sharing common expenses they can keep their costs down in the early phases of their business’s development. He added that by spreading out costs among tenants, each Oakwood Center building becomes more productive and efficient.

In addition to the facilities that are currently open, Schultz said eight more buildings are scheduled to be built for an eventual total of 10 buildings. When completed, the Oakwood Center business park will cover nearly 10 acres.
