Biography

Cigars, Tobacco and Accessories

“Community and people are key,” Jonnette Kraft said. “Treat them right and they’ll treat your right.”

Kraft has owned the Smoking Dog cigar shop for nine years, almost all of that time in Maple Shade.

“We offer hand rolled premium cigars with experts to help you enrich your experience,” she said.

Kraft served for 21 years in the Army National Guard and Air National Guard and it was there she was turned on to cigars.

While she was on duty at the Fresh Kills Landfill there was a group of military and other personnel that would smoke cigars together and they introduced her to the art of cigar smoking.

“It was quite funny when I came home on my day off and told my husband we had a new hobby – smoking cigars,” Kraft said. “He was shocked because I hated smoking.

“I had to explain to him this is so much different,” she added. “It is a relaxing meditative breathing not really smoking at all.”

Kraft said she would recommend Maple Shade to someone looking to open a business here.

“This community is very supportive,” she said. “The township is very supportive and that is huge.”

Kraft said the greatest challenge the Maple Shade Business Association faces is “big government hurting small business.”

“Big government hurts us with their rules and regulations,” she said. “They project their morality on us as a business.

“People enjoy having a cigar once in a while and it is not up to the government to regulate us out of existence or tax us to the point that the state and tobacco businesses lose money to Pennsylvania and Delaware,” Kraft added. “The sin tax and regulations are not equal in anyway with any other business.

“They attack legal substances,” she continued. “If they hated them so much make them illegal.”

Kraft said the MSBA is not affected by the regulations she mentioned.

“I am sure our association is not in jeopardy from big government as it is very well run and everyone does a great job working together in the township,” she said. “I really am so glad we opened our doors in Maple Shade – everyone has always been so supportive.”

Kraft grew up in Kansas and Texas and graduated from Sweetwater, Texas.

She and her family have called Westampton home “for 20 lovely years.”

In her spare time, Kraft enjoys gardening, art, quilting, knitting, and smoking cigars.

Biography

Specialist in Printing and Promotional Items

“It’s all about likability and customer service,” Karen Radie said. “You can offer the same product at the same price as many other businesses but clients come on board and stay because they like you.”

Radie owns ASPIC, Inc., which has been in business for 16 years, all of that time in Maple Shade.

“I always wondered how companies got their logos on hats, coffee mugs, etc. It just so happened that two friends worked in this field and asked if I would be interested in the research and graphics side of the business,” she said. “Having been a former graphic artist I couldn’t resist.

“I learned all sides of the promotional products business and after a few years felt confident enough to go out on my own,” Radie added.

She said what’s unique about her business is “the personal touch we try to give every client.”

Radie said she and Barb, who has been with her for all 16 years, truly enjoy the promotional products business.

“We get paid for shopping, what could be better!” she said. “Of course there is the satisfaction of taking and idea and turning it into something tangible.”

Radie said she would “certainly” recommend Maple Shade to anyone interested in opening a business here.

“It’s a small town with a good reputation for encouraging new businesses by offering help through our zoning board, business association, banks, and other business owners,” she said, noting how helpful the Maple Shade Business Association is.

“It’s good to know your fellow business owners and get together with them for new ideas, networking, even problem solving,” Radie said. “The MSBA offers its members a way to reach their business potential in town.”

She has lived in Maple Shade for 31 years and enjoys traveling, gardening, theater, “but most of all” spending time with her grandchildren.

Biography

Investment Brokerage

“Live your rock-solid values even when no one is watching,” Mike Bollinger said. “Be genuine and work towards earning someone’s trust.”

That is one of the things he has learned in his 27 years in the financial service sector.

Bollinger, now a financial advisor, has been with Edward Jones Investments going on 22 years.

“My first job out of college was as an infantry second lieutenant leading a platoon of men,” he said, noting he served in the army a bit over 20-years. “One of my hobbies while in the service was saving and investing and trying to teach my soldiers to do the same.”

Bollinger said, when it comes to finances, there is something for everyone.

He said he has established educational funding plans for 3 month-old babies and has attended two 100 birthday celebrations for his clients.

“They were not only celebrating life but that they still had money to give to their grandkids,” Bollinger said.

He said Edward Jones Investments has been in the Tall Oaks Corporate Center since the beginning of 1998.

Bollinger said he would “wholeheartedly” recommend Maple Shade to potential business owners.

“It’s a friendly town willing to give even outsiders a chance at success,” he said.

“Business owners form the heart of our entrepreneurial system,” Bollinger added. “They are genuine and usually put their heart and soul into their business and relationships.”

The South Dakota native served in MSBA leadership positions early in his career at Edward Jones and said the biggest challenge to the association is achieving “sustained growth that is meaningful.”

A graduate of West Point Military Academy, Bollinger has lived in Medford since 1993.

In his spare time he enjoys travel, reading, training for triathlons, and being with his family.

Member Spotlight

Owner and creative director at Amped to Dance Dana Marie Randolph said the most important thing she’s learned when it comes to business is persistence.

“Never give up,” she said. “Even when enrollment is low and quotas are missed as long as I keep believing and working towards the vision everything will work out.

“I can’t give up because there is no plan B,” Randolph added. “I must continue to put everything I have in making the dream I have a reality.”

Amped to Dance opened in Maple Shade in July of this year.

“I’ve been professionally training in various styles of dance since the age four,” Randolph said. “After years of teaching at community centers in Philadelphia my passion for music, movement, and teaching collided together as the vision of helping people express themselves through dance came to life.”

So, what’s unique about her business?

“Amped to Dance is the dance studio where passion meets movement,” Randolph said. “We pride ourselves on fostering self-confidence and creativity through dance in each and every person we encounter.

“Amped to Dance is more than a business, even more than a dance school,” she added. “We are a place that encourages self-expression, healing, and love through creative arts.”

Randolph said she would recommend Maple Shade to someone looking to open a business here “because the town is very welcoming.” Also, she said It was a fairly simple process to get started.

She said it has been pleasant being a member of the Maple Shade Business Association.

“I am a member of MSBA because I’d like to learn and grow as a business owner in this town,” Randolph said. “I want to ensure the success of my business and what better way to be a part of a community of like-minded people.

“There are also so many qualities that I possess that may meet the needs of my fellow business owners,” she added.

Randolph grew up in Philadelphia and graduated from Temple University with a BA in communications and Lincoln University with a MEd degree.

She said she and her family have lived in Maple Shade since May 2019.

In her spare time, Randolph enjoys spending quality, “silly” time with her family, exploring new restaurants, reading, and writing.
