    We’re excited to highlight The Big Elephant Kitchen, a Fijian Indian restaurant that opened in May of 2017. Owned by Saleshni, Deon, and Deepak Sundar, the business is a family undertaking. The owners decided to go into business for themselves after gaining experience managing other food businesses. They wanted to bring their unique and delicious cuisine to Portland. During the process of opening the business, they convinced their mother and father to join them.  Rajni, their mother, is working magic in the kitchen while Shailendra, their father, can likely be found searching for breadfruit or some other unique ingredient.

    Summit Wood Creations is a local small business specializing in hand-crafted custom wood furniture. The owner, Reyna Badillo, started building custom furniture largely because of her childhood experiences seated at a handmade dresser. Gifted to her by her grandmother, the dresser holds a lot of sentimental value and has been in her family for four generations. When Reyna realized that she can create the furniture through which clients’ own special memories might be made, she discovered her passion. She turned this passion into a business back in 2001. While the business previously focused on residential custom furniture, they have expanded into custom furniture in the commercial arena.

     

    In any conversation about her business, it is quickly apparent that Ms. Badillo is doing what she loves. Her work is more than furniture, it is functional art. The use of local wood like walnut and maple makes each piece feel at home in the Northwest.  In the future, she hopes to expand the line to 10 key pieces that can be promoted online for customers outside of Oregon.

     

    Ms. Badillo understood that proper legal documents are part of the necessary foundation for a small business and sought out the Small Business Legal Clinic when she was restarting her furniture business. The business first came through the SBLC in 2014 for help with two contracts. Since then, they’ve received legal support for lease review, creation of a vendor agreement, and most recently assistance drafting employment agreements and handbooks.

    NW Ferments is a new up-and-coming Portland-area business. Sue and Wendy have fermented foods for many years as a hobby. When the fermenting company that they worked for decided to move to another state, they decided to open their own company that would bring fermenting to every type of person. They came to the Small Business Legal Clinic in early 2016 to start their own businesses and negotiate the end of their work with the previous business.

    In 2012, the Office for Victims of Crime began funding the creation of legal assistance networks across the country to provide holistic, wraparound, no-cost legal assistance to address the full scope of victims’ needs.  Six Networks were funded.  In 2014, OVC funded a second group of Networks.  By mid-2017 seven of the 10 Networks have completed a methodical process of identifying needs and gaps and designing a Network structure that effectively provides responsive services to victims.  In the first half of 2017, these seven Networks and their 86 partner agencies were available to help 4,075 victims seeking assistance.  The remaining three Networks are beginning services shortly!
