Carriage Works Expanding

While many businesses are downsizing, a Klamath Falls business is making plans to expand, and hire more workers.

‘Carriage Works’ president Barbara Evensizer says business is booming…

“We are going to go to a second shift, and we are looking at hiring at least ten more cabinet makers, welders, and craftsmen.”

The Carriage Works builds those kiosks that you see in malls, casinos, and theme parks. Carriage Works has actually been able to benefit from some businesses downsizing. Moderate mall outlets have been moving more to the kiosk form, which doesn’t take up as much of a footprint,with much less rent.

Evensizer notes that a lot of money can flow through a 30 thousand dollar booth…

“You can make up to 300 thousand dollars a year off that one kiosk.”

That kind of money has many private individuals buying kiosks to open their first business. Carriage Works account executive Lori Butler thinks it reflects a trend…

“The economy is improving – but also, people are finding unique, innovative ways to capitalize on the retail environment.”

And that’s providing needed jobs at the Carriage Works for people like Dan Padgett…

“I found this place needed some cabinertry work and applied, and they were gracious enough to hire me right away – so I’m happy.”

Barbara Evensizer is happy, too…

“It is booming – we cannot believe what’s happening in here.”
