support Rooted Salon During covid-19
My wife Katelyn and I, opened Rooted Salon, three years ago this March. In all the planning and researching we did before opening its doors, we never in a million years anticipated that we be mandated to close, with an unknown reopen date. Our salon is a four-chair salon, where on any given day, will be hustling- and bustling from open to close. Our "employees" are our family and they are some of the hardest working women you will ever come across. They are dedicated to their craft and their guests, working long shifts and standing on their feet.
We established our business in 2017, and have based our business model on a few simple principles:
-To "Stay Rooted" in business, life, and love
-To give back to the community
-To take care of those around us in any way possible
In this uncertain time, we now are asking for the help of our community, big businesses, and the government.
We are blessed that our clients have been gracious in their purchasing of gift cards and products to help the salon stay afloat, but that will not sustain the expenses we still face, for an unknown amount of time. As a small business, we have been extremely fortunate in our ability to provide health coverage to our team and their families as well as disability insurance. We are trying our hardest to maintain these benefits throughout this period of mandated closure. Any funds raised will go directly into their health benefits and ongoing business expenses.
We know we are far from the only business facing these problems with this pandemic and we are going to continue to give back in any means possible once this mess is behind us.
We have to remain positive and remember that this is only temporary.
With much Gratitude & Warmth,
Brandon + Katelyn Quigney
