BUSINESS SUCCESS STORIES

Glaze N Glass

The first time Evelyn Peloquin heard of Western Dairyland Business Center was in a radio commercial advertising the "Woman in Business" Conference that was held in the spring of 2014. The conference was hosted by Western Dairyland and Evelyn went, realizing there were a lot of services that Western Dairyland could offer her.

When she attended the conference in April of 2014, Peloquin was just exploring the possibility of starting a business. With the positive attitude, support and abundance of information provided by WDBC for women in business, she felt she could continue on with her idea of starting a paint your own pottery and glass fusing business. 

Peloquin had never started, owned or even managed a small business before and she needed assistance with writing a business plan, funding outlets and obtaining the correct permits. She attended several other courses offered by Western Dairyland before she contacted a specialist to meet with. 

The specialist that Peloquin worked with was Ken Pearson. She met with Pearson in January 2015, and after a couple of months her business plan was ready to be presented to banks, credit unions and other sources of financial lending. "Ken helped me to develop a business plan-- I had no idea there was so much involved in developing a business plan-- and made it seem manageable and not so overwhelming," Peloquin said. After getting financing, Pearson helped her apply for her FEIN, WI LLC Articles of Incorporation and her WI Business Tax Registration Certificate. On October 18, 2015, Peloquin was able to open her doors to Glaze N' Glass Creations in Eau Claire.

Peloquin says it's been a soft opening, as she has yet to do any type of mass advertising. Her plans include having a grand opening soon and then offer monthly specials on different nights of the week. Her hope for Glaze N' Glass Creations is that it becomes a relaxing and fun place to come and be inspired to create your own personal work of art. 

Peloquin offered this quote to people who may not, in fact, be artists: "You don't need to be an artist to have fun and create; I have several techniques I can teach people that will surprise even them when they see how beautiful the project turns out once it is fired. Glaze N' Glass Creations: a fun place to fire up your creativity!"
