Our clinic was started to help people experience evidenced based chiropractic care. We want to provide the people of Sun Prairie with an opportunity to experience a different type of care, one that does not sell long care treatment plans that can be financially crippling to people in need. We are a sports chiropractic clinic that combines chiropractic care with strength and conditioning to help people achieve their goals fast and provide them the tools they need to stay healthy on their own. We offer chiropractic care, physiotherapy exercises, dry needling, cupping, scrapping, Normatec compression therapy, and strength training. We are located right next to the Bank of Sun Prairie football stadium off of West Main Street.

7/21: Frank's Fruit Trees

1. Give us some background on your business/organization. What makes your business/organization stand out? What are your products/services? How many staff? Where are you located?

Frank’s Fruit Trees was founded in June 2022 by my husband Frank and me (Taylor). Frank has had an interest in indoor citrus trees for years and began collecting them when he was in college. He has since learned how to graft trees, root cuttings, and care for the trees to get them to produce fruit while growing in a container!  We noticed there was a large gap in the market for indoor citrus trees, but many people are interested in them. Plus, enjoying fresh fruit from a tree that you have personally cared for is so gratifying and exciting, not to mention delicious! For these reasons, along with Frank’s passion for growing and collecting citrus trees, we decided to open our local business. 

We are now the only citrus nursery in the state of Wisconsin! We are both graduate students and work full time, so our business is run out of our home in downtown Sun Prairie. While we do not have a storefront, all of our trees are available for local delivery in the Madison/Sun Prairie area, nationwide shipping, or free pickup. We do not have any staff, so Frank and I manage all aspects of the business! 

 

2. How long have you been a member of the Chamber? Why did you want to join the Chamber?

We have just become new members of the chamber, and are very excited! We know that the chamber has a lot to offer and we are excited to network with other small business owners in the area. We are also looking forward to participating in local events, such as the Sweet Corn Festival in August and the Sun Prairie Farmers Market! 

 

3. What are your organization's core values?

Our core values are honesty, transparency, and integrity with our customers. Our mission is to be a local business that our community can trust. It is important to us that as we grow, we do good in our community (not “do well,” “do good”). 

 

4. What are your business's goals and overall mission?

Our main goals are to provide excellent quality trees and customer service, and to get involved in our local community.  

We take pride in personally caring for our trees to ensure that each one is healthy, thriving, and pest-free. We will never sell a tree that we have not personally cared for and grown. In addition, we make ourselves readily available both before and after a purchase for any questions or concerns that our customers may have. We want to make sure that the tree is an investment that pays off and produces quality fruit, so we provide a detailed care guide to every customer and have free information on our website as well. Lastly, we only use organic, non-toxic pesticides to ensure that it is completely safe to eat the fruit from our trees. 

We also prioritize getting involved in our community. We have greatly enjoyed participating in the Sun Prairie Farmers Market this summer and will continue to do so, along with running a booth at Corn Fest! As our business grows, we are actively looking for ways to give back and hope to run fundraisers and other events to benefit Sun Prairie and our surrounding community. 

 

5. What are some reasons you enjoy being a part of the Sun Prairie Chamber of Commerce?

Since we have just joined the chamber, we do not have a lot of experience yet. However, the interactions we have had so far have been overwhelmingly positive. It is clear that the chamber is here to help businesses succeed in achieving their goals, and we feel that we will benefit greatly from being a member. 

 

6. What does the Sun Prairie community mean to you?

Sun Prairie is the first town that we have ever really settled in, and we feel very much at home here.

Sun Prairie is the perfect place for us to begin our venture into the small business world. 

 

7. What more would you like to see the Chamber do?

We are very much looking forward to networking with other small business owners, as well as finding ways to get involved and represent our business in the community. As a new business, we want to get the word out about our awesome trees! We are hoping that the chamber lets us know about these types of opportunities! 

6/16: Reach Dane

1. Give us some background on your business/organization. What makes your business/organization stand out? What are your products/services? How many staff? Where are you located?

Reach Dane provides Head Start and Early Head Start services to children ages 0-5 living in Dane and Green County. These programs provide high-quality early childhood programming and comprehensive family services to families living at or below the poverty line, homeless, or foster care. Nearly 1,000 local children receive our care each year thanks to the compassionate staff and supportive community devoted to giving back to a vulnerable community. In our center-based and home-based programs, children receive an educational foundation alongside the social, emotional, physical, thinking, and communication skills to succeed in school.

Our main office is in Fitchburg, and we have over 13 locations in Dane and Green Counties. We recently combined our two Sun Prairie programs in a newly renovated building on Main Street. This has been a tremendous update from the two buildings that formally housed the programs.

 

2. How long have you been a member of the Chamber? Why did you want to join the Chamber?

We joined the Chamber over a year ago as we continue to grow our Sun Prairie programs. There are several social opportunities to connect with the community on a deeper level with this membership.

3. What are your organization's core values?

Our agency Core Values are building positive Environments, Relationships, Trust, Communication, Equity and Social Justice. We value healthy, creative, nurturing environments for children, families, and staff that model dignity and respect.

 

4. What are your organization's goals and overall mission?

Our mission is to change the lives of underserved children and families through education and supportive services. We practice positive guidance and trauma-informed care with a focus on parent engagement. Unlike other education centers, our policy prohibits expelling or removing children from our sites or programs due to behavioral issues.

As an agency, we practice trauma-informed care (TIC) in our programming, operations, and leadership models. All staff complete trauma-informed training and are encouraged to access the social-emotional resources built into operations. We are continuously finding ways to increase our reflective time, staff wellness and lead from our Core Values. A growing program called Your Journey Together works with children and families using reflective work to build resilience and self-regulation.

TIC is interwoven with social justice and equity and has helped support our work on this core value. We provide social justice training and reflective affinity groups to support this effort. It is imperative that the partnerships we choose to pursue are deeply aligned with our social justice goals.

 

5. What are some reasons you enjoy being a part of the Sun Prairie Chamber of Commerce?

Being a Sun Prairie Chamber member has been a welcoming experience. The Chamber staff have recognized us, some staff even by name, and continue to take an honest interest in the work that we do. There is a quality of family and warmth that was noticeable from the start. Notably, our participation in the Sun Prairie Corn Festival is always a fulfilling opportunity to mingle with other Chamber members and share updates about our agency.

 

6. What does the Sun Prairie community mean to you?

Sun Prairie community reminds us of our own attention on high quality over sheer growth. It is clear when visiting Sun Prairie that the businesses, public spaces, and residents value their community and have a sense of responsibility for how they show up within it. Particularly during the onset of the covid-19 pandemic, many staff and families shared a sense of belonging in the Sun Prairie community. The cohesion and strength really shined through at a challenging time.

 

7. What more would you like to see the Chamber do?

We would love to learn more about how other organizations and businesses are addressing poverty and community-wide vulnerabilities and how the Chamber can help support these goals. If a chamber member would like to provide philanthropic attention, we can help to connect them to our agency and similar organizations to fulfill those goals.
