Its our year to show you who we are and what we can do!

As a fairly new business in the market, We are optimistic for our growth and popularity in the market. We strive our best to provide the best professional beauty services that we can for our returning and new customers. In order to do this, we have taken the necessary actions to ensure that our customers are receiving the best service possible. Some of these actions include using high quality products in all of our services in order to maintain proper professional service. What we mean by this is when you come into our salon to get any service we refuse to apply and use inferior products on our clients for example our 20-minute Energy Facials use high quality skin products that help rejuvenate and condition the skin in order to give it a very fresh natural look. Its because of things like these that we feel strong about the upcoming year because we know our customers care about what they're getting and they know that their salon cares for them. This is the type of impression that we try to create with our customers because that's what matters, Not just quality services but lasting strong mutual relationships with not just our customers but also our community.

The thing about Gwinnett is that it has become home not just because of our salon but because of the amazing community that surrounds it. The people are just so friendly and supportive that it really just feels amazing to know that your clients are not just coming in and getting what they get done and getting out but they like to ask questions and see how your doing. Its qualities like these that make Gwinnett one of the best places to do business.

I'm optimistic about 2017 -- it is already shaping up to be one of our best years ever for MIS Solutions.

Gwinnett has done an excellent job of attracting businesses that are focused on technology and growth -- and those companies tend to be our clients. Not only that, but Gwinnett has a lot of great resources including hardware distributors, support services, excellent schools, and affordable housing.

Gwinnett is not just where we do business...Gwinnett is our home! We've been here for more than 20 years and have been fortunate to forge strong relationships with a number of people and organizations including the Home of Hope at Gwinnett Children's Shelter, the Girl Scouts, the Boy Scouts and Gwinnett County Public Schools. We work really hard at providing value at every interaction. And that includes with our employees, our clients and our community.

The Best is yet to come in 2017! With as much uncertainty as this past year and election season brought, more people are reaching out for help in creating their Financial Security. Baby Boomers and Millennial alike all need help and advice with their financial affairs and we are positioned to do just that with our services and many products. Our Financial Security Path plan allows us to give out clients a roadmap to get them to where they want to be financially and is a complimentary service we offer to all our clients.

Shauna Mathias - Owner, Bettie Monroe Salon

2017 is going to be our best year yet. Since we opened in 2012 every year we have almost doubled our revenue! Now with a extremely strong team we are looking at even more growth! We went from almost no walk ins and new calls to the phones ringing constantly and walk ins. We are off the beaten path with nothing around us and we have built this salon from nothing.

Mary Campbell - Owner, Kid to Kid Buford, GA

2017 is going to be all about community relationships, support for elementary education and team building with our staff. We are excited to work hard and see the positive results!

Retail trends are moving faster than ever and in order to keep up small retailers need to be adaptable and nimble. Kid to Kid is doing our best to streamline our system and give customers the products they want without having to wade through too much they don't.

Consumers want an easy and personal shopping experience and most importantly I believe they want to feel the retailer is tied to the community and cares about their neighborhood and customers.Our most successful campaigns have been when we partner with community programs and schools. We love these partnerships and hope to find more in 2017!"

We are feeling hopeful, enthusiastic, and excited about 2017...our best year yet! Business at Berens has never been better! (Being named "Best of Gwinnett" has certainly helped) Each year here has been better than the previous year, and we look to continue that trend. Being Atlanta's original frozen custard since 1976, we've seen a lot of ups and downs, but the "vibe" in Gwinnett right now is very good. Who knows, we may even look to open another store or two!

I expect to create positive and prosperous business in 2017! Our positive outlook is influenced by a multitude of factors! Factor #1, our phones are ringing off the hook! Gwinnett customers are seeking us out -- and not the other way around. Factor #2: Swimming Pool Renovation is a specialty that is in high demand. In our market, we've never seen this demand higher than right now. Factor #3: Our economic outlook and long range projection looks better than ever for 2017 - and beyond! Factor #4: We are committed to our customers and our industry. Since our beginning in 2000, we haven't changed our business model... because of that, our word-of-mouth reputation is still our biggest asset, and our customers are our best salespeople! How could we ask for more? In our business world, life is good.

We are very excited about the business climate in 2017. If you listen to them, the political pundits will always tell you the sky is falling and have a long list of problems. However; we work with Gwinnett’s next generation on a daily basis and it is invigorating! Our students are smart, hard-working, driven and even gasp ambitious! Instead of watching the news and fretting about what could or could not happen, we are working with the Gwinnett youth that will make it happen.

I was born and raised in Gwinnett county, and I have always loved the small-town feel we have here. We currently live in Buford, and it's a great location for us to have quick access to both the North Georgia mountains and the city of Atlanta itself. We have wonderful parks nearby, which give us many options for beautiful engagement and family portrait sessions. The historic city centers nearby (Buford, Duluth, and Lawrenceville, for instance) are another favorite. The architectural features of historic buildings are a perfect backdrop.

Maggie Walls - Owner/Lead Instructor, Momentum Dance and Fitness

In my industry, I'm seeing a positive trend towards supporting small, boutique studios over the larger facilities. I think people are looking for that personalized experience, and I think the movement to support our local small businesses is growing.

Gwinnett is a wonderful blend of urban sensibility and small-town charm. We get the best of both worlds here - premiere, quality products and services provided with a smile and conversations about our families.
