Since 2018, EforAll Cape Cod has provided the critical support that local entrepreneurs and small business owners have needed to achieve success. Here are a few examples of businesses that have been able to grow and thrive as a result of EforAll’s support.
B Free Wellness
With her studio in Harwich Port, owner Ayanna Parrent is able to combine her experience as a licensed clinical social worker and certified fitness instructor to improve people’s lives through movement, mindfulness, and coaching.
A nonprofit, B Free Wellness is focused on supporting individuals whose lives have been affected by trauma, addiction, and oppression. Its group classes included yoga, Zumba, pound, and more.
Fair and Just Kitchen
Not long after Peter Duff was laid off from a job he had held for 12 years, he enrolled in EforAll’s Business Accelerator Program, which allowed him to pursue his lifelong dream of opening up his own restaurant on Cape Cod.
Since 2020, Duff has been operating Fare and Just Kitchen of Brewster, a vegan eatery that is 100 percent plant-based, dedicated gluten-free, and peanut-free. The concept is simple – the food is delicious and prepared in a thoughtful manner that is kind to animals and our environment.
Green Road Refill
CapeSpace members are familiar with Jessica Georges and her eco-friendly startup Green Road Refill. A participant in EforAll’s Business Accelerator Program, Georges is taking huge steps to help reduce Cape Cod’s plastic footprint by helping Cape Codders embrace an eco-friendly way of living.
Her mobile-friendly shop can be seen throughout the region, including CapeSpace, Cape Cod Beer, and local farmers markets in Falmouth, Orleans, Harwich, and Brewster. Here, you can refill your shampoo, lotion, dish soap, laundry detergent and more while purchasing eco-conscious cleaning supplies such as mops, brooms, and sponges.
New Reveal Power Washing Services
Though Fitzroy Jarrett has owned New Reveal Power Washing since 2014, he participated in EforAll’s Pitch Contest in early 2020, garnering second place and earning nearly $3,300 to purchase commercial solar panel cleaning equipment.
Fitzroy’s Dennis-based company takes an eco-friendly approach to power washing roofs, decks, siding, pool decks, and solar panels.
Osterville WiFi & Smart Home
Having spent nearly 20 years professionally designing high-end electronics systems in homes across Cape Cod, Nantucket, and Martha’s Vineyard, Daniel Curtis is using his experience to boost homeowners’ WiFi and enhance the comfort of their homes by enhancing their audio, video, and outdoor sound systems.
Joy of Seeing Entrepreneurs Succeed
While there is much to love about her job, Amanda Kaiser, program manager for EforAll Cape Cod, said the best part is when her organization is able to help local entrepreneurs achieve the type of success these five EforAll graduates have. “We have a lot of folks who have gone through our program and really succeeded in achieving their goals and are continuing to move forward,” she said. “The nice thing is seeing people set goals, meet them, and figuring out what the next step is. It is awesome to see that progression for them.”
