“It takes a lot to succeed, and even more to advance, as a small business,” Kristina Joyce, Kentucky Small Business Development Center state director said in a press release. “These businesses prove their strength and commitment to our communities, to their employees and to our Kentucky economy, both by investing in their startups and then by staying the course.”
Susie Robertson, who own Pirogue’s Cajun Food Truck, along with her daughters said it was something they had wanted to do for a long time.
“It’s been a dream for a long time. It’s me and my daughter’s, and of course we all had different career paths up until about two years ago, and we said it’s something we’ve been wanting to do for a long time,” she said.
