THE BROTHERS OF TIMELESS STONE IN BLOOMFIELD
We love small business stories that show the true spirit of the American Dream and this is one of them! Brothers, Jackson and Jalisson Oliveira moved to the U.S. from Brazil when Jackson was just 19 years old. That's when Jackson started working for Timeless Stone in Bloomfield, putting in long and exhausting hours. They soon had an opportunity to buy the business and went for it. Since then, they have built the company to eleven employees and are preparing to open a second, larger location this January! Known for being honest and fair and having exceptional expertise, they specialize in granite, quartz, and marble countertops and can customize anything for your kitchen or bath renovations. Find them HERE or see some of their absolutely gorgeous work below. Contact: 860.242.3300.
COTE GOLF'S RISE FROM BASEMENT TO BIG BUSINESS
Chris Cote's love for golf has driven nearly every business decision he's made to this point. It all started in his North Kingstown, Rhode Island high school where he was an all-state golfer and state champion. Years after school, he started selling golf clubs on eBay from his basement. The business grew so much (and took over the house), he decided to open Chris Cote's Golf Shop on Main Street in Portland. Chris's knack for understanding the needs of golfers led to many accolades over the years, including recognition as a Top 100 Club Fitter by Golf Digest, Golf Magazine, Mizuno, and PING. In 2011, he built a 7,000-square foot facility on Route 66 and the rest is history. From basement to big business, Chris and his wife, Donna, now own five Chris Cote Golf locations. They have ranges in Portland and Southington, two retail shops offering FREE club fittings, and recently opened an indoor golf facility next to their Portland shop that offers TrackMan simulation where you can play on courses from around the world. In July, they launched the Toptracer Range and Performance Center in Portland for Tour Level club fitting and golf instruction. It's a golfer's DREAM! Gift cards work at all locations and would be a great HOLIDAY GIFT IDEA for the golf lover in your family. Click HERE to buy.
