COVID-19 Retail Storefront Property Tax Assistance

Kansas SBDC Client Spotlight

Stumpy’s Smoked Cheese is very unique; there are no other smoked cheese businesses in the state of Kansas that are licensed properly to sell to the end consumer or other retail locations. Their process is unique and allows them to smoke cheese in the hot summer months unlike any other! They’ve also supported other local businesses in their success by carrying their products in their retail location. 

Quint and Stacy Cook approached Kansas SBDC to help devise an effective and efficient plan for their business. They connected with SBDC Advisor Karl Klein who walked them through the business plan by connecting them with necessary resources. He also shared with them his knowledge and advice on how to grow their business. The SBDC also helped them create their own marketing material by helping them to hire a graphic designer. “We enjoy working with Karl Klein, he has great resources and brings a lot of wisdom and experience to the table. He is also great at connecting us with his resources,” Quint shared and added, “We wish we knew the ends and outs of running a small business! We’ve had to learn everything along the way, The Kansas SBDC has been very helpful!"

The Cooks were successful in securing adequate knowledge for their business and were successful in opening up their own retail establishment.
