When you start thinking about small business in the Boro, trust us, your head will just about explode. There are so many locally owned small businesses in Statesboro, and they are all amazing, and doing great things. We decided that in this issue, we would spend some time focusing on some of those businesses. We wish we had room to give space to them all, but we picked a few that we think you’ll enjoy reading about.

First of all, there’s Watersedge Design Company, founded and owned by Brandon Jones. The company works with new construction, remodels, space planning and interiors, to create spaces that are creative and functional. 

Great GA Realty is a small but mighty force in the real estate market in the Boro. What began as a potential new career path for owner Jessica Herrmann, the company has become a team that makes a difference in people’s lives as they purchase their first or next homes. They also give back to the community as a team and individually.

Wall Orthodontics is a family affair that focuses on patients first, because that’s where the passion lies for owners Drs. Marie and Michael Wall. Having served Bulloch County for 14 years now, the Walls love getting to know their patients, and giving back to the community they have come to love.

Our cover feature this month is BigDog SnowCones, which you’ve probably seen around town. You may have even lined up for one of their 125 flavors to help you cool off this summer. Owners Ivey and Julie Miller love what they do, and they love their dogs, Oscar and George, who are the namesake for their business. Check out their story, and be sure to check out where you’ll find them next , so that you can enjoy the true taste of summer.

Last but not least, we feature Katherine Whitlock, a recent graduate of Bulloch Academy who has overcome so much in her young life. Born with spina bifida occulta, doctors warned her parents that she may never walk. But Katherine proved them all wrong, and she’s now preparing to enter one of the top schools in the country as a dance major.  

We hope that our stories this issue will inspire you, delight you and make you hungry for more. Take care and thank you for reading!
