Two new women-owned businesses have come to Southern California, supported by the Kimco KEYS business incubator program. Glynnes Pruett has opened Comic Book Hideout at Kimco’s Fullerton Town Center in Fullerton, Calif.; and Krystina Cabrera and her mother, Julie Crumidy, have opened Bella by Krys Day Spa at our Melrose Village Plaza in Vista, Calif. These ladies are some of the first entrepreneurs to get their businesses out of their dreams, and into Kimco shopping centers, through our KEYS program.

Both retailers held their grand openings in November, and we were there to catch the action on camera. Watch our footage to learn how Comic Book Hideout and Bella by Krys came to be, the role the retailers felt KEYS played in their business launches, and their goals moving forward. We hope these videos give you insight into how our program is going, who’s participating in it, and why.

Glynnes Pruett’s story might look familiar to you. We featured a podcast with Glynnes about her Comic Book Hideout grand opening on our blog, which you can click back to for more details. We also have a podcast interview in the works with Krystina Cabrera, and we’ll be publishing it soon on our blog to give you deeper insight into the Bella by Krys story.

There will also be more KEYS news where this came from. Keep your eye on our Kimco KEYS program tag for the latest KEYS tenant updates, openings, and stories.
