Two-fer Tuesday

Tuesday was a Two-fer when it came to Ribbon Cuttings. I like days where I get to network with lots of people, especially when they are excited about showing their new business. Tuesday was one of those days.

Being a volunteer diplomat for the Bossier Chamber of Commerce has been such a wonderful experience. I love finding out all about new businesses in the community. When I drove up, my immediate thought about Perfect Touch Day Spa and Salon was “well this place isn’t new, it’s been around here for years”. I quickly found out that while the business has been around for quite a while under a different name, it is now proudly under new ownership by Charla McCullough. Charla welcomed each of the guests into her new business with a big smile and was ready to show us around.

It’s hard to find anything wrong when visiting a Day Spa and Salon. If I had my choice, I’d spend many hours a week in a day spa. Wouldn’t that be the life?

The Perfect Touch Day Spa & Salon has all of the services that you would expect to find in a day spa and salon. Those services that help renew and refresh yourself. Charla’s staff pride themselves in going the extra mile to give you that one on one time you need to relax and enjoy yourself. Of course my favorite part of any spa/salon are the massage packages. Perfect Touch provides Swedish, Deep-Tissue, Hot Stone, Hand and Foot massages, as well as Therapeutic Body Wraps. Also on the menu, you will find services which cater to women, men and children, some of which include facials, microdermabrasion, manicures, pedicures, waxing, make-up application, anti-cellulite services and a full service hair salon. They offer packages for occasions such as prom, weddings and after hours business gatherings. I was interested in knowing that they even will host birthday parties. How fun is that?

It was a joy to listen to Charla talk about her new business. She has a keen ability to teach her employees to find their passion and do what they love to do. She shared that she had been an employee at the prior business and it had always been her dream to own a day spa. I think she has achieved her dream. Wonderful and Congratulations Charla!

The Perfect Touch Day Spa and Salon is located at 2369 Airline Drive, Suite 400 in Bossier City. Tell them that you read my blog when you stop by.

On to the second ribbon cutting of the day:

When I was a kid I had two loves, playing with paper dolls and SNOW CONES!! I grew up in South Louisiana where it’s hotter and more humid than the northern Louisiana climate. The only thing that could make a hot day bearable was a snow cone. When I moved to North Louisiana, I found something missing. The snow cone stand on every corner. Where were they?? Ben Berela and his wife, Donnie, obviously asked the same question when they got here, but they did something about it.

Nawlins SnoBalls is a great traditional South Louisiana treat. Ben’s wife is a New Orleans native and she missed those wonderful New Orleans snowballs of her childhood. Ben says when the economy dictated that some of his hours would be cut from his job, they decided to focus their attention on becoming small business owners. We are all lucky that they did.

It’s refreshing to see the tenacity of this family. I think they will be around for a long time. I could hear in his voice that they put their heart and soul into their business. He makes a point to remember his customers. In fact, he said he usually will remember your favorite after a few visits. Hey Ben, my favorite is Cotton Candy!! Although, I hear that the Strawberry Cheesecake is pretty darn good.

Ben supports the Bossier City community and offers all government and military employees SnoBalls for $1 while they are on duty. He says it’s his way of giving back.

Nawlins SnoBalls is located at 2225 Airline Drive, in the back parking lot of Central Baptist Church (between Captain D’s and the church). Congratulations and good luck in the future. Stop by and tell them that you read my blog.

See ya around Bossier,
