DCEDC, in association with the UW-Green Bay Small Business Development Center, announced today that Dr. Zach Paul, owner of Integrated Health Services of Door County, is the winner of the $1,200 cash award for the best business plan originating from the 14th annual Door County Entrepreneurial Training Program course conducted earlier this year.
Located at 6214 Highway 42 in Egg Harbor, the mission of Integrated Health Services of Door County (IHSODC) is to improve the health of Door County by providing the latest in chiropractic, nutritional and muscle rehabilitation services. IHSODC is a healthcare based business that includes service, selling of nutritional products and education. Integrated Health Services of Door Country is a patient-focused healthcare facility that can provide services for multiple age groups with multiple health related issues.
Integrated Health Services of Door County offers chiropractic services for individuals of all ages but focuses on families, aging patients who have Medicare coverage, and athletes looking for rehabilitation services. The nutritional aspect of the clinic treats patients who need weight loss services, patients diagnosed with Type II Diabetes, and patients with food intolerances/allergies. IHSODC also treats patients who are sports-minded and are looking to improve athletic performance.
Zach Paul was among the fifteen students representing twelve start-up or existing local businesses in the class sponsored by DCEDC and the SBDC. The eight-week course covered such topics as Research, Marketing, Organizational Matters, Financial Planning and Projections and Managing Growth, and culminated with each of the participants writing a comprehensive business plan. This was the fourteenth year DCEDC has co-sponsored and offered the Entrepreneurial Training Program course in Door County.
“Zach wrote a very thorough, well-written plan, focused on growing his businesses to the next level” said DCEDC Executive Director Bill Chaudoir. “All of the people who participated in the class are winners, however. By taking the time to learn the skills of business planning, they have each greatly improved their chances of succeeding in whatever business venture they decide to pursue now or in the future.”
The $1,200 award was generously sponsored by Associated Bank, Bank of Luxemburg, Baylake Bank and FirstMerit Bank. The award is to be used for business expansion expenses. The Entrepreneurial Training Program course will again be offered in Door County beginning January 2016. Contact the Door County Economic Development Corporation for information about the class.
