Downsizing is the 'new normal' for many businesses facing a tight economy...but a Klamath Falls company is thriving by helping those businesses make the shift to smaller quarters.
Those kiosks that you see in malls, airports, and casinos aren't just for coffee anymore.
"This is what I hear real estate's going to go to." Notes 'Carriage Works' Owner and President Barbara Evensizer. "The offices are going to close, and they're going to have these in malls, just like this selling real estate. It's already happening in California."
Evensizer adds that she's also working on a government contract...
"These are information booths for the Air Force bases, and it saves a lot of money just putting one of these in, instead of building a new building."
Evensizer hopes that if the government is happy with the product, they'll order more...and that could result in the Carriage Works getting much bigger.
"So I could see us going to a second shift." Says Evensizer. "Building more buildings, and the future is fantastic for this with the military."

The Carriage Works got its start in Klamath Falls about 40 years ago building horse carriages, sleighs, and wagons.
Mobile retail units and kiosks are now the company's core products.
