"I love being part of a renaissance. There’s so much energy around the architecture and the artists and the community and the new businesses. Cities in rebuilding mode offer amazing opportunities for small businesses"

"The growth potential is there. You can see it. You can feel the energy. There are some really cool businesses happening in Downtown Kitchener these days. Momentum is definitely trending in the right direction."
