This Saturday is small business Saturday.
Leading up to that day we are profiling small businesses here in Cheyenne.
Cowboy Supply House began in a small Laramie apartment in 2005.
"A few cases of product. My wife and I, and I just started calling on people and working my way up," said Joe Ries.
Joe Ries moved to Wyoming to play basketball at UW, began his business and hasn't left the state since. He's not surprised by how far his business has come in a short amount of time.
"I wouldn't have started something if I didn't' see what I wanted to do in my life, but I always dreamed of it," Ries said.
What started out as a modest business in a Laramie apartment has grown exponentially in just eight years. A 7,000 square foot warehouse and trucks that deliver all over the state.
"Everywhere from Riverton, Lander, Casper, Cheyenne, Laramie. I even have Grand Teton National Park as a customer," Ries said.
He believes their success comes down to treating their customers how he'd like to be treated.
"We'll do anything for our customers. We'll help them as far as training. We'll help them as far as product knowledge. We'll help them as far as if it's budgeting concerns and they need to fix their budgets," Ries said.
Ries believes in supporting small businesses which is why he sells products made in the United States, helping employees at businesses like his, stay employed.
"Small businesses, they create the most jobs in the world. As we grow we hire people that are your neighbors, your friends, your family," Ries said.
