BUSINESS SUCCESS STORIES

Lynn's Chatterbox Cafe

Lynn Bednar knew she wanted to create a unique restaurant in Eau Claire, but she didn't know how to get started. She came to Western Dairyland with a plan, and they helped her establish Lynn's Chatterbox Café. A quaint, little restaurant in the heart of the city, Lynn's Chatterbox Café is the first "dementia friendly" restaurant in Eau Claire. Thanks to Western Dairyland, Lynn's dream of helping the community by doing something she loves has come true.

With the Western Dairyland Business Center's help, Lynn was able to obtain state and federal tax ID numbers, as well as the necessary licenses and permits. She also received help in getting registered on the Wisconsin Department of Revenue site, a crucial step in creating a local business. Western Dairyland also showed Lynn how to organize and set up her business record keeping.

With the success of her business, Lynn enjoys giving back to the community by serving the public, working with the recovery community to help rehabilitate individuals through the provision of jobs, and offering a senior dining site in collaboration with the Aging & Disability Resource Center. They even have a "Bible Mission," which offers free bibles to anyone.

Lynn has always wanted to do something that would help others, and Western Dairyland has enabled her do that by offering her support and showing her how to properly and legally start he own business.
