Meet Me on Monday - Featuring Mathnasium

Bridges_MondayBIOS_mathnasium.png

Every Monday, the Bridges introduces you to a new location and helps you get to know them a little better. This week, we are proud to feature Mathnasium. Mathnasium is owned by Matt and Susan Manes of Sioux Falls. They have been here since 2015 (they opened on “Pi Day,” which happens to be March 14. Here are a few fun things to do about this great asset to Sioux Falls.

MathnasiumFamilyPicture_crop.jpg

Why did you decide to come to the Bridges?

We were still living in Tennessee when we decided The Bridges was a perfect location for Mathnasium. Susan saw a friend from college post on Facebook about shopping at The Bridges and we both thought it looked like a great place that families enjoy. We then looked into the location further and knew it was a perfect fit with its convenient location and the opportunity to be neighbors with other small businesses.

You help kids maximize their math skills. How are you different than other methods?

We do our best to create a fun learning environment that breaks the stereotype that math is “boring” and something kids dread. We love hearing parents say their kids are asking to come to Mathnasium. We are locally owned but also part of the franchise, so students also get to learn using Mathnasium’s amazing curriculum that builds students’ confidence and makes parents’ lives easier.

What is one thing people don’t know about you that you would like them to know?

We are here to help students of all ages and abilities with math. We create a plan for each student, so we can help those who are behind or those who excel in math. Students who are ages 1st grade through 12th grade can be part of Mathnasium. We also have a great program for ACT and SAT math prep.

What are some ways you give back to the community?

We are always looking for ways we can support the local schools and teachers whether it’s donating classroom supplies, donating towards scholarships, encouraging teachers or being part of events at the schools.

What do you love most about owning a local business?

We love working together as a family and serving families of Sioux Falls. It gives us so much joy to get to know each family who is part of Mathnasium and see each student thrive.

What is your biggest challenge?

Many families don’t realize that they can join Mathnasium at any time and that we can help all levels of math ability. We do all we can to be flexible and accommodate the needs of each student.

How do you work to better serve your customers?

Parents and teachers work so hard to help their students and we do all we can to support them and listen to their feedback so we can help each student. We work hard to create an environment where each student feels valued and cared for and leaves with a greater confidence in their abilities.

Meet Me on Monday - Featuring Club Pilates

Each Monday, the Bridges at 57th Street profiles a different business so you can get to know a little bit more about them. This week we proudly feature Club Pilates, which opened at The Bridges in August 2017.

The owners of Club are Michael and Tricia Safranski. Take a little time to meet them this Monday!


Why did you decide to come to the Bridges?
The Bridges offers a nice array of locally owned boutique and lifestyle shopping options and has a great location at 57th and Western, which can be easily and quickly accessed from I-229.  We felt that The Bridges was the ideal location for Club Pilates Sioux Falls as it is a boutique fitness studio that complements the other boutique and lifestyle businesses in the center.


Tell us about Club Pilatea?
Club Pilates Sioux Falls offers the best value and widest array of Pilates classes in Sioux Falls and is open seven days a week.  We teach eight different class formats and have four varying levels of difficulty to accommodate all fitness levels.  Every participant receives a full body Pilates workout in every class on brand-new state of the art equipment.

 

What is one thing people don’t know about you or your business that you would like them to know?
Club Pilates Sioux Falls offers a comprehensive Pilates teacher training program wherein all training occurs in the Sioux Falls studio. The teacher training program is a great opportunity for individuals who are seeking a new career path, a second source of income, or just looking to further their Pilates practice.

 

What are some ways you might give back to the community?
Club Pilates gives back to the community through hosting events such as canned food, sock and toys drives in which the items collected are donated to local charities and shelters. 

 

What do you love most about owning your own business?
We love interacting with people in our community and being able to provide them with a quality, full body workout in each 50-minute workout.  However, one of the most rewarding aspects of the business is hearing directly from the members how the studio has helped them achieve their fitness goals and overcome aliments and injuries that they’ve been dealing with for years in some cases.   

What is your biggest challenge and how do you work to overcome it?
One of the more challenging aspects of business is educating the community that Pilates is for EVERYBODY, not just women.  People of all ages and fitness levels can experience the benefits of a regular Pilates practice.  We spread the word by posting educational and informational articles on the Club Pilates Sioux Falls Facebook site as well as sponsor and attend local community events that target varying demographics. 

Do you have a favorite product that you sell?
We sell a full array of fitness related retail merchandise from leggings and tanks to massage balls and muscle rub.  However, our favorite item that is sold are grip socks from ToeSox and TaviNoir.  Grip socks are required for Pilates class, but are also used by many members in their homes to prevent slips on hardwood and tile floors.
 

How do you work to better serve your customers?
Our instructors continuously seek to develop creative class flows to keep their Pilates workout fresh and exciting with the right amount of challenge.  We also listen to our members to determine how we can best serve their needs.   

Meet Me on Monday - Featuring Dakota Seafood

Bridges_Monday_dakotaseafood.png

Each Monday, the Bridges at 57th Street profiles a different business so you can get to know a little bit more about them. This week we proudly feature Dakota Seafood, which opened at The Bridges in December 2017.

Travis at Dakota Seafood.JPG

Dakota Seafood’s General Manager is Travis Petersen, one of the nicest guys around. This is what he has to say about Dakota Seafood:

Tell us about Dakota Seafood and what makes you different?

We offer clean fresh seafood from both coasts, and local products made right here in South Dakota. All of our fin fish is line caught, or sustainably farmed. It is important to Dakota Seafood to only carry fish that has a positive impact on the environment. We also have fresh oysters, shrimp, lobster and the best crab cakes around. We have many ready to eat options: Sushi rolls, Salads, and Poke Bowls. For people looking to make a beautiful meal for friends and family, we have really simple and easy ready to cook seafood options as well. There is no one else around like us. 

What is one thing people don’t know about you or your business that you would like them to know? 

We will cook the fish for you! We have a really talented staff that has been trained in the culinary arts. You can enjoy it right on our patio, which offers a great view, or you can take it with you.  We also do wholesale to restaurants in town.

What are some ways you might give back to the community? 

We donate our leftover fin fish, trim scraps and shells to the Sioux Falls Butterfly House and Aquarium to help feed their fish. We also donate our leftover bread to help those in need. 

What do you love most about managing a locally owned business?

Sharing the very best the water has to offer with South Dakotans. We have unique, healthy, flavorful options. It’s a great honor to be part of the dinner shared with loved ones.

What is your biggest challenge and how do you work to overcome it? 

Not too many people in South Dakota have much experience cooking ocean fish, so educating our customers on how to prepare our tasty fish is important. We offer recipes, cooking instruction or we will cook it for you.

 Do you have a favorite product that you sell? 

Crab cakes! They are so amazing! 

How do you work to better serve your customers?

We listen to our customers and we take suggestions. We can special order for customers as well. We are constantly educating ourselves with new products and tastes to share with people.
