Time to Primp!

Michele Henry & Wesley Uthus will be opening two more of their successful Primp stores, adding to their current cache of 7 stores. Sioux Falls will open next in June on Phillips Avenue and Mankato will open in the next 60 days in the Tailwind building, located downtown. To the envy of most of their competitors, we’re sure, they do it 100% debt free!

And the donut wars begin . . .

The Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal is reporting that the first Dunkin’ Donuts lease has been signed in the Twin Cities. Franchisee Kod Kod Enterprises will be opening in New Hope at the intersection of 42nd and Winnetka, near the new HyVee supermarket. Java Properties will demolish the Gas N Splash car wash currently on the site and construct a new building with a drive-thru for Dunkin. Kod Kod Enterprises was represented by Molly Townsend and Ted Gonsier of Colliers. Construction should start in June.
