Dan Landucci

President and Owner, Paddles Up Poké

Learn more about Dan

Paddles Up was founded in August 2016 by Dan Landucci. When you heard the name you may have said, “Why Paddles Up?” Well, to answer your question, when you’re rafting, putting your paddles up signifies to get into attack mode when approaching rapids. The term stuck and putting your paddles up has become a life motto for the Landucci family. In August, Dan decided to put his paddles up and attack his lifelong dream of owning a restaurant. Dan partnered up with his longtime friend, Jordan Tapangco, and together they have built a spot where Idahoans can go to refuel for their next adventure in life.

 

Kelsey Miller

Owner, SHIFT Boutique

Learn more about Kelsey

In March of 2015, somebody asked me, “If you could do anything or have any job, what would it be?”, I said that I would love to open a clothing store with my sister. We had always talked about starting a business but we both lived full lives in different cities and never really spoke of it in any seriousness. It was the weekend of my 30th birthday in late August 2015 when our dreamy discussions became a real-life question of “Could we really do this?”. The answer was “Yes.” Fast-forward to March 2016 and we opened the doors to SHIFT boutique for the first time. We quit our jobs, moved to Boise from bigger cities and opened a scrappy retail boutique with the help of family persuaded by beer and pizza. SHIFT boutique brings quality fashion to downtown Boise. It also brings women together in an environment that is respectful, playful, and engaging. We have a dynamic family, we are part of the community, and tend to not take ourselves too seriously.
