Tré Bone's Owners Working to Make Business More Successful Than Marriage
Portland, Oregon business owners Carol Ellis and Serge Ouattara discuss how they've made their venture, Tré Bone, prosper and expand despite ending their marriage. SCORE Portland helped the pair develop a solid business plan, replicate that model in a second location and obtain financing.
“Serge had a viable business model and a good track record,” says Joanna Mehaffey, a West Coast Bank vice president. “I was also aware that Serge had worked with SCORE, which can be a very helpful tool for business owners.”
