Where are they now? Updates from 2020 REV winners

October 27, 2021

At The Bank of Tioga, small businesses matter and help our communities grow. Hear from the 2020 REV business recipients to see where they are now.

 “The REV experience was fantastic! It allowed our Haugland Insurance Services agency the opportunity to help make a dream a reality! We are passionate about growing our business and our local economy, and this grant helped us to achieve both of those goals.

We used the $3,000 funding to help purchase a sign for our building that promotes our business and office building. This exterior advertising for our business has been instrumental in helping our book of business grow. We have expanded our territory into northeastern Montana in addition to serving our clients here in northwestern North Dakota. 

We are so appreciative for the generosity The Bank of Tioga has provided not only to our business but to our community as well. Thank you for investing back into our future!”

Amber Haugland, Agent/Owner at Haugland Insurance Services

“The REV experience was exciting and challenging at the same time! With the $2,000 funding A to Z Grooming was able to purchase plexiglass for the inside large kennels and purchase walls and ceiling that can be easily washed and sanitized. Receiving funds helped me feel that the community was behind me which in turn boosted my confidence about myself, my business decision and future growth.

The boarding side of the business has grown beyond my imagination over the last year! There have only been 22 days since January 2021 that I have not had at least one boarder. Thank you again for investing in A to Z Grooming!”

Lisa Fredrickson, A to Z Grooming

“The REV experience was great! The $5,000 proceeds went toward the demolition on a nearly 10,000 square foot building! We are nearly complete with the demo and remodel of half of the main floor where Pizza Pie on the Fly is leasing space. Again, I am so appreciative and look forward to the future.”

Becky Kingston, Joyful Living

Additionally, Queen Divas Heavenly Mains Cleaning Services also received $5,000 to help purchase equipment and develop a professional website. This year’s private 2021 REV event takes place Friday, November 5th at the Tioga Theater. Stay tuned to hear about this year’s winners.
