With the intention to further enhance their internet presence, the Brewers began meeting with the Alaska Small Business Development Center (SBDC) in Anchorage. “Allan, our adviser, guided us and pointed us towards several resources that allowed us to redesign and customize our website to match our vision. Allan made the process extremely easy for us and was there every step of the way for questions, ideas, and creative input. We were also able to consult with him on ways to increase traffic to our social media sites which was extremely helpful and has strengthened our social media following! We highly recommend SBDC, they are always honest about what will work best for our company, and their support throughout the whole process was very refreshing.”

Their business advisor, a coffee enthusiast himself, shared, “We worked on revising the previous website and learning Wix to design an even more welcoming one. Not only did she [Lori] create a great site that was completely modern, but she loved building it herself and gaining the knowledge to keep it updated as changes come.”
