Kristin Billings is the owner of Kristin’s Kafé located in Mishawaka Indiana. Kristin came to the Indiana Small Business Development Center in September of 2011 seeking business startup assistance. She wanted to lease a building on 4th Street in Mishawaka and buy the contents of a restaurant that had been closed for some time. The Small Business Development Center helped Kristin create a startup list for her new business, and helped point her to the proper agencies for her business license and entity formation. The Small Business Development Center also helped Kristin set up her accounting and day-to-day bookkeeping.
Kristin did a great job of utilizing the resources of the Small Business Development Center and in October 2011 opened Kristin’s Kafe where she employs three people in her business. She has since exceeded her revenue projections and continues to grow by paying attention to the small things that people look for when they visit a small diner. Kristin continues to grow her business by utilizing social media techniques that she learned at the Small Business Development Center. Kristin and her staff have created a fun and friendly atmosphere, with quality food that keeps people coming back again and again. For more information visit Kristin’s Kafe’s Facebook page.
