West Allis BlueMARK NABERBeing selected and joining Scale Up has been an unbelievable investment for our business. Getting outside perspective and having a small group of peers available to share information has proven to be an incredible resource during trying times in the economy. You don’t have to feel alone in your challenges or successes!

GRG PlayscapesJOHN LaPointe, Co-Owner & FounderThe Scale Up Milwaukee team has been an incredible partner in laying out the path forward for scaling our business. For the first time in 15 years in business I feel like we have real direction. We finally have tools that work and a coach to give us the nudges we need.

Tall Guy and a GrillDAN NOWAK, OwnerTall Guy and a Grill has benefited from Scale Up Milwaukee on two fronts. First, we were able to fully implement the Single-Page Plan to help streamline our workflow and keep our management team focusing on our most important/high impact projects to keep scaling the business. Second, Scale Up helped us create multiple revenue streams to better diversify our product offerings. We successfully launched two sister businesses, Flour Girl & Flame, which is a mobile wood-fired pizza concept, and The Crafted Tavern, which sources craft cocktail offerings for both to-go and in-person events and parties.
