Success Stories

Casey Wanek - Paris in Pembine

In September, my wife, Michele, and I were dining at Paris in Pembine, a wonderful restaurant here in our community. On our way out of the restaurant, Michele noticed the “FOR SALE” sign outside the restaurant. Thoughts of an exciting adventure, no more corporate world, and our empty nest returned us to the restaurant the next day for a tour.



Pat Tallier - Infinity Wood Floors

After just 40 days of production, Infinity Wood Floors (IWF) in Crandon employs 30 people and has shipped over 250,000 square feet of flooring throughout the U.S. and Canada. IWF owner Pat Tallier attributes the company’s immediate success to Wisconsin’s high-quality northern hardwoods, an exceptional sales staff and manufacturing team, and a commitment to the company’s mission: To enhance [its] customers’ success by providing the highest quality precision machined products, value-added solutions and uncompromising focus on customer service.



Stacy Nellen-Kolze - Nell's Wigs and Boutique

Step inside the door of Nell’s Wigs and Boutique in Allouez and you will feel an instant sense of why UW-Green Bay alumna and company founder, Stacey Nellen-Kolze, ‘98, opened this business in the first place. The showroom at Nell’s, featuring an array of products and adorned in local art and words of inspiration and strength, demonstrates the warmth and security which is central to Nellen-Kolze’s mission of caring, compassion, and service.
