WINSTED, MN Five months after purchasing Winsted’s Road House Coffee Shop, Taylor Bachman is excited to announce her ownership of a second business Winsted Floral & Gifts.
Both businesses are located in the same building on 6th Street North, and both will be tied together for full-service event planning.
“We’re expanding on what we already have,” said Taylor, a former Winsted Holy Trinity student.
Joining Taylor in this venture is Lester Prairie native Mollie Piehl.
“I came on officially as co-owner Oct. 1,” Mollie said.
Mollie’s background includes sales, marketing, fashion retail management, and event planning.
The new owners have been renovating the floral shop, and it will reopen to the public Friday, Oct. 25.
New and Crazi
The new name of both businesses is Crazi as in Crazi Cakes and Coffee, and Crazi Flowers and Events.
“It’s catchy, it’s fun, and it’s different,” Taylor said.
“And, we’re all kind of crazy,” Mollie joked.
Taylor and Mollie are giving the floral and gift shop a rustic/modern ambiance, and they’re adding new gifts for all ages.
“It’ll be more like a boutique,” Mollie said, explaining that fashion scarves, organic household and beauty products, candles, seasonal home décor, and hair accessories are a small sampling of what’s in store.
Events of all kinds
Crazi will also be a one-stop shop for event planning of any size funerals, weddings, new births, graduations, anniversaries, and more.
“There’s nothing we can’t do,” Taylor said.
To start, customers can order professionally decorated cakes for special occasions, as well other unique desserts like mocha cupcakes, red velvet cheesecake bars with Oreo crust, and pumpkin pie croissants, to name a few.
Flowers, tuxes, invitations, and catering are also available.
“We will have packages with options of what’s included,” Mollie said.
The current hours for the coffee shop are Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sundays from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The flower shop will open at 8 a.m. Monday through Saturday.
