Via Twin Cities Business
“Among scuffed and broken shoes, Chris Bixby saw opportunity to modernize a traditional business. He started Shooli, a mobile shoe repair service for the Uber era.
“We brought modern convenience to what we call ‘the timeless craft of cobblery,’” says Bixby, who earned a Harvard MBA and worked in marketing at General Mills before making the leap to entrepreneur. The idea for a concierge-style shoe shine and repair business was born during brainstorming sessions with Bixby’s financial partner and investor, Hemisphere Cos., a Twin Cities–based investment firm.”
