A labor of love for entrepreneur activists Sara Hand and Stan Schultes of Spark Growth, the journey to getting the doors open involved many months of meetings and long hours of work. A big thanks goes to the City of Bradenton for use of the historic firehouse at SR 64 (7th Ave E) & 9th St. E for this endeavor.
