What's Asheville's secret? There's no question that its entrepreneurial community is thriving. New businesses open their doors each week, helping keep our community alive with fresh ideas and initiatives. There's so much business news, it can sometimes seem impossible to keep your finger on the city's pulse. And the vibe isn't Asheville's alone — as a whole, the metro area and Western North Carolina have become a hub of biz spirit.
So for this week's Open for Business issue, Mountain Xpress gives you a chance to get better acquainted with these businesses, their owners and what they’ve been up to — they're part of what makes Asheville and WNC unique and vibrant. They have the podium in these pages to introduce themselves and so you can learn more about them.
