If you’ve ever seen a driver navigating a scooter, maybe a Vespa, around town, perhaps you thought, that person looks ridiculous. Or maybe you thought, ah, they know the score.

“It’s exactly the type of business we’re looking for,” said Krystal Souvanlasy of SSHD. She said they’re looking for unique businesses that will attract new folks to the area.
