Karen Evans doesn't want families to be bored.
That's why she created Macaroni Kid Ferndale-Royal Oak to help bring families together at fun events.
Evans recently submitted information about the business through the Small Business Spotlight.
Here are her answers.
What does your business offer?
An answer to the question "what is there to do?" and an end to the phrase "mom, I'm bored!" We offer a weekly e-newsletter FREE to families with helpful articles, fun craft ideas, and a calendar of kid- and family-friendly events. We also maintain a website where the calendar is updated daily.
What's your most popular product or service?
The newsletter has been seeing a huge increase in subscribers.
What's a fact about your business that most customers probably don't know?
It's not easy to find all of the area events in one place.
When was the business founded?
How did your business come to be?
After always finding out about fun area events the day *after* they happened, I was inspired to find a way to bring all of the fun family events together into one place. Now I don't have to wonder what's happening -- I have to wonder which event I should choose!
Why did you choose the area you did?
Does "area" refer to geographic area or industry?
I'm a lifelong Royal Oak resident (well, except for the years I spent in Berkley!) so focusing on events in this area made sense.
