Services for Businesses

"My company, Shega Foods, has been in the neighborhood for 18 years. Over that time, I have worked with Redesign on three real estate projects.  I believe that our company growth has directly depended on the consulting Redesign provided, their financial support, including their Hiawatha Revolving Loan Fund, and the partnership we formed to build the new bakery at 2610 East 32nd Street. That growth could not have happened without Redesign’s support."

- Worku Mindaye, owner of Shega Foods
