Small business is a big deal in Minneapolis. It is important to the business owners, their customers, and the neighborhoods in which they’re located. The Wells Fargo Works for Small Business®: Neighborhood Renovation Program Contest is about helping small businesses thrive. Wells Fargo and Rebuilding Together Twin Cities, along with a team from MSR Design, recently renovated four small businesses in designated economic development focus areas in Minneapolis.

Hope and Healing Family Counseling, LLC was the Grand Prize winner of the Wells Fargo Works for Small Business Contest. Rebuilding Together Twin Cities and employee volunteers from Wells Fargo enhanced this important small business by turning the office’s unfinished space into three new therapy rooms and building an accessible and ADA-approved entryway.

Three additional finalists also received assistance with renovations: Mississippi Mushrooms, Ibrahim Restaurant, and Wendy’s House of SOUL.  To read more about this program and the winners, please click here.  Congratulations to all four small businesses and thank you to Wells Fargo for supporting their work!
