These connections drive the partnerships needed to maximize the potential for economic growth in today’s highly-competitive global marketplace. Some of the major initiatives undertaken by the Chamber today include playing a vital role in the Garland Economic Development Partnership, bringing manufacturers together through the Dallas County Manufacturers’ Association, growing our future leaders through the Leadership Garland program and keeping an eye on the future through the Legislative Affairs committee. Additionally, the Chamber serves entrepreneurs, small business owners and women in business through the on-site Small Business Development Center counselor and the Women’s Business E-nitiative.

BIG THINGS COME FROM SMALL BUSINESS | THE GARLAND GUIDE 2016

Big Steps to Starting Small Morning Dew Massage & Wellness

,,#)((

According to the U.S. Small Business Administration Office of Advocacy, based on the U.S.

Census 2002-2010, small businesses represent 99.7 percent of U.S. employer firms. The 23 million small businesses in America already account for 54 percent of all U.S. sales and while the rate of small business start-ups continues to climb, the rate for small business failures has declined. These statistics indicate that, when done right, small businesses can not only be successful, but sustainable as well. Though the economic climate and U.S. culture both support the idea of entrepreneurship, there is still a great deal of risk and responsibility involved, and the pathway to success can be tough to navigate. Garland is home to thousands of successful small businesses, all of which once traveled the path from a conceptual idea to where they are today. One such business, Morning Dew Massage & Wellness, is no exception, and stands as a shining example of the way vision and skill combine to power the process of a small business start-up. When you walk through the door at Morning Dew Massage & Wellness, it’s

almost as if for a brief, precious time, you put the world on pause. The rush of traffic on Northwest Highway is hushed. The ever-beckoning “ding” of emails and text messages from crowded rooms of brightly-lit screens is silenced. The hustle of tight schedules and lengthy to-do lists begins to feel a little less pressing. As a cheerful, welcoming greeting comes from behind the desk, you know you’ve arrived at a place where you can breathe. For Sernerick Greer, founder and owner of Morning Dew Massage & Wellness, his career didn’t start out so serene. At just 18 years old, he was the youngest employee at an Arkansas

plant of Georgia-Pacific. For twelve years, Sernerick worked in the world of manufacturing, driving a forklift and working on a machine. He did well, but found himself distracted and much more passionate about other pursuits. One such passion was in writing and producing music, which brought him to Texas on a recording contract. He’d been traveling back and forth on weekends for quite some time, when a personal family tragedy altered his perspective on the way he was using his life. “I was at work and I thought, ‘Lord, there has to be something more than just this,’” Sernerick said. “I’d been feeling it


already, that I’m supposed to do more than just this job.” Sernerick got in his spirit that he was supposed to move, and Texas would bring him closer to the music path he thought he wanted to pursue at the time, so he transferred to the Georgia-Pacific facility in Denton in 2009. After only a month, a layoff sent Sernerick back to the drawing board, but this time, he had a slightly clearer vision for what would come next. “While I was working at GeorgiaPacific, I saw a commercial for massage,” Sernerick said. “I knew I wanted to get into the healthcare field because of my background. I had surgery in my arm and had to go to occupational therapy. That afforded me the chance to learn a whole lot about the arm, about the muscles, and while I was in therapy, massage really helped me.” Massage quickly became a new passion for Sernerick once he enrolled in massage school at ATI Career Training Center in Dallas. At the time, the nation

BIG THINGS COME FROM SMALL BUSINESS | THE GARLAND GUIDE 2016

was headed into economic recession and Sernerick found himself surrounded by classmates who were also pursuing a second career. Many had been laid off like he had been. With some excellent instruction and the motivation of supporting a growing family, Sernerick graduated, received his license and immediately applied for a DBA under Morning Dew Massage. To kick off his new career, Sernerick’s first job was at the White Rock location of Gold’s Gym. For four months, he worked as a massage therapist and got a taste of what the industry was really like, but needing some additional income, Sernerick walked into his local chiropractor’s office to ask if they might need a massage therapist to add to their staff. Dr. Williamson of Affordable Chiropractic told him they actually did need someone, so he was hired on the spot and started the very next day. For five years, Sernerick was exposed to the health care side of massage. He went with the doctors to local high school football games and learned about sports medicine and was introduced to the school system where he gave chair massages to teachers. The exposure within the Garland community helped Sernerick gain confidence in his craft and in himself.

In 2011, Sernerick added another specialty to his repertoire as he entered the world of spa massage at Mokara Salon & Spa at the Omni Dallas Hotel. There Sernerick learned from some of the best in the region and was able to test a few of his own modalities; however, his hard work wasn’t necessarily paying off. Sernerick had consistently maintained two jobs throughout his massage career. He stayed with Gold’s Gym while working with Affordable Chiropractic, then left the gym only to get on staff with Mokara, but remained an employee at the chiropractor’s office. In addition to all of that, he’d also maintained his own Morning Dew Massage brand as a mobile massage company. He took his table all around the region to work corporate retreats, spa parties and event massages. In 2013, Sernerick got a paycheck that turned on a light bulb. After a full week of satisfied, well-served clients at Mokara, he only received about 30 percent of what he’d made for the company. As his client base had grown and his modalities had been perfected, his income had yet to reflect his expertise. He was discouraged and began looking for guidance on how to make a productive change in his career. One of Sernerick’s trusted mentors from the music producing world asked him a simple question, “What do you want to

12 | T H E G A R L A N D G U I D E | 2016 COMMUNITY GUIDE AND BUSINESS DIRECTORY

do?” He’d been so busy working multiple jobs, still maintaining a presence in the music studio and even taking a shot at an acting career, Sernerick had lost focus. At this pivotal point in his professional life, he had to make a decision, and his decision was to make a real run at his business, Morning Dew Massage. Sernerick’s motivation, from the moment he enrolled in massage school, was simply to help people. Starting his own business, creating his own atmosphere and customizing his clients’ experience would be what would best allow him to do that. With that mission in mind, the process of opening his own place began with drafting a business plan, which he then brought to SBDC counselor Judith Collins. “I loved Judith when I met her,” Sernerick said. “I was nervous at first, but she made me feel comfortable. She picked my brain a little bit, just to see what I was trying to do and if it was possible.” Judith served as Sernerick’s adviser on everything from choosing a location to acquiring funding and developing strategies that would ensure sustainability. Inspired by his time with Affordable Chiropractic, Sernerick wanted to officially add “wellness” to his brand. Though the relaxation and leisure of spa


massage has great and valuable benefits, he really had a passion for relieving pain and helping to solve physical issues, as he’d been helped through medical massage earlier in life. In the summer of 2014, the planning stages were nearly complete and he found a space that was ready to be transformed into the oasis he’d imagined for his clients. After extensive renovations and a thorough hiring process, Sernerick had the pieces in place and was ready to open the doors of Morning Dew Massage & Wellness in December 2014. His process, with Judith’s help, was methodical and well informed, by both counseling sessions and lessons learned through prior experiences. Through each career opportunity Sernerick had, he gained important insight about what it takes to manage a business well. Most importantly, and perhaps most uniquely, the compilation of lessons learned developed into his company’s values, summarized by the acronym EPIC.

“We train our employees to be EPIC,” Sernerick said. “We want them to Educate their clients and never stop learning. We teach them that Professionalism is from the inside out. We make sure they use Integrity all the time. And lastly, you’ve got to be Consistent.” Sernerick and his wife Charissa, who works as COO in the business, employ two massage therapists, an esthetician and two receptionists, each of which has gone through extensive training in how to be EPIC. “Everyone is VIP here,” Sernerick said. “It doesn’t matter if they have millions or if they have one cent. Our clients should never have to lift a finger and they should be able to trust us to do the right thing.” Shortly after opening the business, Sernerick joined the Garland Chamber of Commerce and hosted a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to announce his presence to the community. Since then, he’s been active in Garland wellness initiatives, he’s invited teachers, fire fighters and police officers in

for special appreciation promotions, and he’s even gotten involved in Leadership Garland Class 35. After a full year under his belt, he has a lot of ideas for the future of Morning Dew Massage & Wellness, but his ultimate desire hasn’t changed. “We want to really get out into the community and that’s our focus now,” Sernerick said. “We just want to let everyone know, ‘Hey, this is for you guys.’ We’re not here just to make money, it’s to do something greater. So this is where I’m at, and we’re doing great, but it’s not time to look in the mirror yet.”

SBDC Success Story Each year, local SBDC Counselor Judith Collins shares a unique story of small business success from the diverse and impressive list of clients she serves. Check out this year’s story for a behind-the-scenes look at how SBDC counseling helped ensure the success of a local franchise expansion.

Craters & Freighters Craters & Freighters of Dallas is a fullservice packaging, crating and shipping company offering door-to-door service to any type of business. They provide peace of mind to those who need answers to their packaging, crating and shipping needs by providing trained professionals who work closely with each customer. Choyet Terro and his partners Tony Alleman and Don Theriot bought a Craters and Freighters franchise in 2000. In May of 2002, in an effort to grow and diversify the company, they bought the customer list from a trade show crating company that was going out of business. They hired their key employees and were on their way to establishing themselves in the industry. By 2004, they had turned their business into the largest revenue producer within the franchise organization. The partners were successful with their growth strategies in Dallas. In 2013, when the opportunity presented itself for them to grow and expand in the Houston area, they jumped on it. However, they would need financing. So, they turned to the Dallas Metropolitan SBDC at the Garland Chamber location. Choyet needed help with identifying lenders to meet growth needs such as the building, inventory, and staff of a failing Crater’s & Freighters in Houston. “Judith Collins of the SBDC helped our company by introducing us to lenders in the area who could provide financing for future growth,” Choyet said. Once financing was secured, they realized that half the business had been lost but were confident that they could build back the business by implementing the same growth strategies used in Dallas. “Judith Collins was also a sounding board regarding our growth strategies for the new office,” Choyet said. Their Dallas center provided the additional cash needed to sustain the

Houston operations and in one year’s time, sales grew from $35,000 per month to $70,000 per month. Today, with the acquisition of the Houston location, the partners believe they have positioned Craters & Freighters once again to become the top revenue producer within the franchise organization. All made possible by their growth strategies, expertise, success with their Dallas location, and some help from the Dallas SBDC and the Garland Chamber.

“ Craters &

Freighters is now positioned to become the top revenue producer within the franchise organization.

Profiles of

Prominence In a city like Garland, it’s easy to assume that small-town values like

small business support get lost in the shuffle of 230,000 residents, but fortunately for this community, that’s simply not the case. Our small businesses are vibrant, varied and essential to the growth and sustainability of our community, and the reasons why might be a little bit bigger than you think. It’s likely that when you hear the phrase, “small business,” your favorite little boutique, restaurant or coffee shop immediately comes to mind. The personalized services, warm welcomes and unique flavors of a small business make it special, memorable and irreplaceable. After 120 years serving the community alongside these very businesses, the Garland Chamber of Commerce has

observed yet another important and equally valuable facet of small businesses – quite simply, it’s their owners. We’ve found that more often than not, small business owners are also in the business of giving back to their community. Whether through leadership on a City Commission, volunteerism in a local organization or even by serving as an elected official, we’ve had the

16 | T H E G A R L A N D G U I D E | 2016 COMMUNITY GUIDE AND BUSINESS DIRECTORY

honor of getting to know many business owners who see the immense value in contributing to the overall well-being of the community that supports their business dreams. Regardless of title or recognition, each has taken the prominent role of a humble, dedicated servant for a cause that benefits us all. The individuals you’ll read about here have incredible stories of passion and perseverance as they’ve grown not only as business owners, but as community leaders as well. To these and others who have seen a need and taken the lead, we salute you. Your impact extends far beyond the welcoming doorway of your business and out into a community that continues to thrive as a result of your commitment to inspiring positive change in Garland, Texas.

Marisol Trevizo PILAR FUNERAL HOME

Life is filled with opportunity. At every turn of events, in every circumstance and in every time of need, life is filled with opportunity. But for Marisol Treviso, the opportunity to serve her community doesn’t end when life does. In fact, for her, it just begins. Unlike most in the funeral home business, Marisol came into the industry as an outsider. She’d gone to college, earned a Master’s Degree in Public Administration and spent 10 years pursuing a path toward a role as a city manager in the Dallas area. “I was very fortunate in that the positions I held were positions that I really liked, that I enjoyed; positions in that I grew and learned a great deal and was very successful,” Marisol said. However, in 2004, Marisol’s life and career path took a turn. She’d recently been introduced to the funeral home business through a personal connection who invited her to help out with some services on weekends. It quickly became clear to Marisol that she had a heart for taking care of the families she was able to work with. She was encouraged to enroll in mortuary school, which she did, but it meant leaving her career in public administration behind and diving head first into largely unfamiliar waters. Near the end of the six-month program, Marisol found herself expecting her first child, without a steady income, and with a recently severed relationship. Though she’d graduated from mortuary school and had the right credentials to begin a new career, being with child, she was unable to find a job right away. After taking a hard look at her circumstances and examining the options, Marisol realized that though things had changed, she could see herself continuing on the path, so that’s what she did. While out of work and awaiting the arrival of her baby girl, Pilar, Marisol developed a plan. “I started researching the demographics in DFW, how many funeral

homes there were, where they were located, and I actually wrote a business plan,” Marisol said. Research, coupled with the limited exposure she’d had previously, led Marisol to discover a distinct void in her community, particularly in the funeral home industry. A lifelong Garland resident, Marisol knew Garland had a high concentration of Hispanics, and yet, there was no funeral home in the area that specifically catered to this demographic group. Living in Garland and having the right tools to address the need, Marisol felt confident that this community would be the perfect place for her to pursue her business venture. Her goal became to create a place within the Garland community that her neighbors could enter into and find compassion, relief and understanding, from someone who knew their circumstance and was eager to guide them through this difficult stage of life. “Making funeral arrangements, it’s obviously not something you do every day,” Marisol said. “You go to the grocery store over and over and over, right? But most people may only have the opportunity to plan a funeral maybe once or twice in their lifetime. And so, it’s a very important moment in someone’s life.” Marisol went on to explain that in a community with such a great population of Hispanic families, there are many who either prefer to speak Spanish or exclusively speak Spanish, meaning that a general-market funeral home may not be able to adequately communicate with these clients, much less make them feel comfortable in their time of need. “Think about being in that position where you’re going through one of the most difficult moments of your life where you’re losing somebody,” Marisol said. “I believe that that person is going to feel more comfortable speaking in their native language, feeling like they’re dealing with somebody that understands

them from a cultural background and a traditional background.” This vision of offering unique, personalized service to a specific niche market of the community is what kept Marisol going through the trials and struggles of entrepreneurship, which included tackling tasks like finding a location that worked for what she wanted to offer. Marisol searched for a building for months, finding great buildings in the wrong zoning districts or perfect locations without enough parking spaces. Eventually, with a little guidance from her bank’s loan officer, she crunched the numbers on what it would take to do new construction. “To me, I was already taking on this huge project, I didn’t think I could build a brand new building,” Marisol said. “I ended up finding a vacant lot, getting bids, finding a contractor and this little project that I was pursuing turned into a huge undertaking.” When the dust settled, in 2008, all her hard work paid off as she opened the doors of Pilar Funeral Home for the very first time. “Someone told me when I first opened, ‘It’s going to be hard,’” Marisol said. “If you can imagine, I started from zero. I had to sit here and wait for that first family to walk through my doors; thinking and wondering wow, is this going to work? It was sort of like a leap of faith.” Marisol credits the encouragement of her family and friends, along with some excellent recommendations from some of her early clients, for kick-starting her business in the first months. She also recalled some of the best advice she’d received at the launch of her business from a close adviser, “If you do a good


job taking care of those families that come in here, the finances, the money, that’s going to take care of itself.” “I took that advice and that’s all that I do,” Marisol said. “At the end of the day, I come in here and I give my best to these families.” This genuine spirit of service is what keeps Marisol’s business going strong, but Pilar Funeral Home clients aren’t the only ones who benefit from the effects of her compassion for the community. Marisol graduated from the Chamber’s Leadership Garland program, Class 31, where she was encouraged to find a way to give back. She’s taken on the challenge through serving in several capacities including the City of Garland’s Civil Service Commission. Appointed to the Commission by Garland City Council, Marisol is one of three commissioners who works as an unbiased advocate on academy exam discrepancies for the local police and fire departments. “The biggest thing is, when there’s promotional exams for police and fire, sometimes the candidates that take the tests to be promoted disagree with a specific test question, so they’ll appeal it,” Marisol said. Candidates taking the promotional exams can make an appeal to the Commission that a specific question was too vague and request that the question be thrown out or make a case that multiple answers are equally correct. The Commissioners carefully consider each appeal and vote on the fair and appropriate action to take. Marisol was honored to be asked to serve and takes her position very seriously as she recognizes the importance of these test scores to the future advancement of the candidates. Given her background in public administration, Marisol is also acutely aware of the value in a community that supports the big picture and considers sustainability from a holistic perspective. “I, as a business owner, care about the community as a whole,” Marisol said. “If Garland is a city that’s vibrant, whose economy is growing, a city that’s creating jobs, that obviously is going to turn around and benefit me as a business owner.” Marisol has undoubtedly risen to a position of high stature and prominence in the Garland community, but for her, it

was never about the recognition; in fact, it wasn’t even about owning a business. “I never would have thought that I would have ever been a funeral director or that I would actually end up owning a funeral home,” Marisol said. “So that’s why I say, it was just kind of destiny. I don’t like to use that word, but I think God has a plan for us. I have no doubt that this is what God had in store for me.” Though at times it seemed circumstances were stacked against her, Marisol found a way to take hold of the opportunities before her and fill a void

in her community, something she thinks everyone is capable of doing in one small way or another. So what’s her advice? “Find a cause you really believe in, and just go from there,” Marisol said. “It’s really important. We have to give back and we have to help others as well.” Pilar Funeral Home 650 W. Avenue D., Garland, TX 75040 (972) 276-5100 www.pilarfuneralhome.com

PROFILES OF PROMINENCE | THE GARLAND GUIDE 2016

Robert Selders 3Q FITNESS: CROSSFIT GARLAND Fitness is often thought of in the context of meeting weight-loss goals, being able to run a 5K, or maybe playing a sport. Society tends to view fitness from a strictly physical perspective, but for one Garland business owner, it’s a much more global concept. Robert Selders began his career in the field of engineering. He earned a Master’s degree, moved to Texas for a great job he enjoyed and started a family. This successful businessman seemingly had it all together, but after just a few years on the job, the sedentary lifestyle of working in a lab and sitting behind the computer caught up with the life-long athlete; and in his own words, he’d gotten pretty big. Keenly aware of his physique and looking to make a change, Robert made a wager with his father-in-law as to who could lose 25 pounds the fastest. Robert joined a competition in physique transformation to keep himself motivated and surged to the top of his class to become a sponsored athlete for the company hosting the competition.

Though his prior experiences with personal trainers had been less than impressive, Robert found himself inspired by the science of all he’d learned. He found that the processes of his training were repeatable and that a large majority of the population could be helped by the same sort of things he was learning to do. Robert decided to get certified as a personal trainer, eager to share his new-found knowledge and skills with others, while still working full time as an engineer. “I had my own personal fitness transformation, and I realized that it’s possible to make changes,” Robert said. “I remember feeling very confident and feeling very accomplished at having done that. I was really proud of what I was able to do. It was very meticulous, very thoughtful. It was a process.” After achieving his certification, Robert took a part-time job as a fitness manager at Gleneagles Country Club in Plano. The position allowed him the opportunity to work with youth tennis players, where he found himself

20 | T H E G A R L A N D G U I D E | 2016 COMMUNITY GUIDE AND BUSINESS DIRECTORY

intrigued by the performance aspects of fitness. Around that time, in the early 2000s, California University of Pennsylvania, in association with the National Academy of Sports Medicine, created an Exercise Science Master’s degree program for working professionals. Robert enrolled and before long, he had become completely immersed in the world of physical fitness and sports training. While maintaining excellence at his full-time engineering job and pursuing a Master’s degree, Robert began an internship with Velocity Sports Performance in Allen, Texas. He was taking classes in performance enhancement and injury prevention, gaining hands-on experience, and applying his skills to coach young athletes in volleyball. As his passion grew, Robert knew he was ready to make a change and go all in, but working for the gym just wasn’t going to work for his family. With the support of his wife, he began a slow transition to making personal training his full-time career. “I told myself, ‘I’ll just start slow and I’ll find a little space and just start having clients, just attract a few clients here and there,’” Robert said. “I’d already started working with some of my co-workers. I would work with them and help them and I wouldn’t charge them anything. So I found a small private studio here in Garland and went in and introduced myself to the owners and basically asked them if they would mentor me in being a personal trainer.”


Robert also drew from his experience working with clients at the country club years earlier, explaining that his clients there had different expectations. They expected a certain, higher level of service, which pushed Robert to step up his game to make sure his clients achieved great results. As an independent contractor in the Garland studio, he treated his clients the same way. That’s all he knew. Repeating this model in surrounding communities, Robert got some advice from a trusted mentor that he needed to, “get somewhere and sit down.” He needed a spot, a home base, where he could get established and be seen. In 2009, he officially left the life he’d known in engineering and settled into a spot in Downtown Garland. Robert quickly set about the work of revitalizing the run-down space and once construction was complete, he took on his very first client, which was a familiar face from his time at Velocity who needed some pre-college volleyball training. He continued to offer private personal training and performance training in the new space, then got Crossfit certified and added that to the mix. Though business was great, it hadn’t quite developed into what he knew it could be. “At one point I realized, maybe within two to three years after opening this facility, that I just basically owned a job,” Robert said. “If I didn’t work, the business didn’t make money. That became sort of the thought in my head - I’ve got to figure out a way that my team could run this business without me physically being there. So we’ve started to move in that direction.” Several popular business authors, Robert Kiyosaki and Michael Gerber in particular, had taught Robert a lot about building a sustainable business. Desiring to pursue the same high level of performance in his business that he coached his clients toward in fitness, Robert sought out the “friction points” in his company. As he learned to be a better technician, he also developed managerial skills and brought on employees that shared his passion and vision for truly helping people improve their lives through fitness.

“It wasn’t necessarily that I thought, OK, I want to own a small business,” Robert said. “It was that it was sort of the vehicle that allowed me to pursue what I feel God has purposed me to do, which is to help people and help impact their lives in a positive way through their health and the quality of their life.” Robert has been exceedingly successful in modeling the 3Q Fitness mission, which stands for qualified fitness professionals helping clients to achieve quick and quantifiable results. However, fitness doesn’t start and end at the gym. For Robert, it’s a holistic approach that truly makes a difference in a person’s life. He talks about a concept called the continuum of health, where a person has fitness on one end of the spectrum and sickness on the other, with wellness somewhere in the middle. This sort of bell curve model lends imagery to the idea that simply being well isn’t enough. “If your pursuit is wellness, and you get hurt or something happens and you can’t actually continue to do the things that will keep you well, there’s this slope that happens that takes you back in this direction toward sickness,” Robert said. Pursuing performance, which is at the highest level of fitness, is what Robert and his staff focus on with clients, and it’s not all about working out. Fitness begins with understanding yourself as a person, what drives you, where you want to be, and that can be emotionally, academically, or relational. Physical fitness is only one piece of the puzzle. In Robert’s life, service is a big component, and he’s found a unique way to use his specialized skills to impact the Garland community as a whole. “Service is a way to connect everybody,” Robert said. “I think people are so disconnected from each other and they don’t realize that they have more in common than they might think.” In 2012, Robert got connected to his fellow business community leaders through participation in Leadership Garland Class 31 and was exposed to the wealth of need, opportunity and success in the city of Garland. As a Garland ISD parent, who was only familiar with the individual campuses his own children attended at the time, he was particularly

impacted by the programming of Education Day. “Going through Leadership Garland just kind of opened my eyes to how big this school district was and how many programs that were happening and all this great stuff happening in the school district and I was just like, wow, that’s amazing,” Robert said. He’d been participating on the School Health Advisory Council as a parent co-chair for a number of years and witnessed some of the things that were going on in the district from a health standpoint. He knew Garland, and Texas as a whole, weren’t the healthiest places to be, but he felt as if things could be different. From his perspective, if the District could get students thinking about health and developing healthy habits, then maybe the parents would get on board too. Robert saw no reason why Garland couldn’t develop a new identity centered on fitness. With these possibilities in mind during the Leadership Garland program, Robert watched the School Board and thought, “I want to do that.” Knowing his children would be in the District for a while, he saw an opportunity to serve at a higher level; so when a seat became available, he ran for a place on the Board of Trustees and was elected in 2015. In every aspect of life, Robert is focused on positive change. Whether making decisions on critical school district issues, keeping clients accountable to their fitness goals, or in his own pursuit of performance, his enduring philosophy is that in order to truly serve a purpose, you’ve got to make a difference. “My perspective is more solutions based,” Robert said. “I’m all about listening to the problems that you have, but then I’m going to ask you questions about how to help solve them. At that point, you need to be ready and willing to be part of the solution.”

PROFILES OF PROMINENCE | THE GARLAND GUIDE 2016

Jan Furtick THE PAYTON GROUP

Joyful, creative and full of life – these may not be the adjectives you’re used to hearing for the introduction of a leader, but for “Jolly Jan” Furtick, there’s really no other way to begin. Jan often plays the role of the woman behind the curtain, or the woman behind companies’ creative branding strategies to be more precise. Her local business, The Payton Group, is a family affair where she and her husband, Steve, find unique solutions for each client’s marketing goals. Whether it’s mass quantities of ball point pens, specially designed t-shirts, laserengraved office accessories, or anything in between, the Furtick family has dedicated their careers to making sure clients select the exact branded product that will deliver the ideal result; and they’ve been vastly successful at doing just that. Jan’s personality is so perfectly suited for the promotional products business, it’s tough to picture her in any other field, but she didn’t set out to be a small business owner. In fact, Jan was headed down the path to become an attorney. While in high school, and for a total of close to 10 years, Jan worked for a local law firm. One of the attorneys, Ms. Peters, saw her potential early on and made an offer that if Jan would go to college, she’d pay for it – provided Jan made A’s. Jan agreed and soon started at Eastfield College.

“I’d take one class at a time and I’d get my A and she’d pay me,” Jan said. “She’d write a check to Eastfield and she really encouraged me.” A classroom education wasn’t the only thing this attorney wanted to impart on young Jan. In the early sixties, Peters invited Jan to participate in the Business and Professional Women’s Club of Dallas, Inc. Through her involvement with the club, Jan began to experience the power of networking and be inspired not only by Peters, but also by the exposure to talented, determined, successful women. These early experiences undoubtedly laid the foundation for what the future would hold as Jan would grow to empower and inspire others through her own leadership and success. As her life and career continued to develop, Jan moved on to marriage, children and a new role in hospital administration. In 1983, her husband was teaching school and had taken on specialty advertising as a part-time side business with just a handful of clients. The business slowly grew and before long, Steve took on The Payton Group as a full-time job. Then, through a series of unexpected family circumstances, it became necessary for Jan to leave her full-time job with the hospital, allowing more time for what remains her number one priority still today – her family. Jan began helping Steve with clerical tasks, running the business side, while he handled sales, orders and client relations. “We didn’t really grow the business at that time. We maintained it, with the family as the first priority,” Jan said. “Then, in 2001, we were able to change gears.” That year, the Furticks’ youngest child graduated from high school and Jan was able to shift her focus back to business.

22 | T H E G A R L A N D G U I D E | 2016 COMMUNITY GUIDE AND BUSINESS DIRECTORY

Through almost twenty years of playing a support role for the company, Jan had grown to really have a passion for the mission of what they were doing, which was to serve local companies in developing unique, dynamic and fun branding products. Remembering all she’d learned early in her career, Jan had the confidence and the skill to really run with it, but the transition to becoming the face of The Payton Group was one of Jan’s biggest challenges. “Going from being in the background from the business perspective to being the one that went out there, that was really connecting and trying to grow the client base and the company brand and all that kind of thing, that was a challenge,” Jan said. “I was completely changing directions of what my responsibilities were, while still doing the clerical part I might add.” For the first four years, Jan and Steve maintained the office in their home, but their expansive growth begged for a dedicated space and together they agreed Downtown Garland was the perfect spot. Soon, they opened their office on State Street, just off the square, where they not only carved out a place of their own in brick and mortar, but also became part of the fabric of the close-knit downtown community. As she’d done all her life through whatever avenues were available to her, Jan began to get involved, this time in the business community. She’d gone through the Chamber’s Leadership Garland program, Class 21, served as Class Advisor following her own graduation, and joined the Garland Downtown Business Association where she took charge of various initiatives. In


a few short years, Jan Furtick had become quite a recognizable name, and a wellrespected name too. Though her rise to prominence was quick, it was far from unexpected. The Chamber of Commerce leadership saw her great potential and as she completed her consecutive terms as Class Advisor and Steering Committee Chair, she was asked to serve as the Executive Director of the entire Leadership Garland program. “I said, ‘Absolutely!’ but I wanted to do it as a volunteer,” Jan said. “At that point, there wasn’t anyone dedicated to advancing the program. I could just see this need to do more.” Jan had the vision that was required to launch the program into a new phase, and her first year to serve as the Director was with Class 25 in 2005. She maintained her status as a volunteer so she was able to continue running The Payton Group simultaneously, which turned out to be a perfect match. “When we do the Leadership Garland program, we don’t promote business,” Jan said. “What happens is, through Leadership Garland you develop such a good relationship and understanding of people. It’s difficult over that nine-month journey to completely fool people. So once you finish that journey with people, then people know whether or not they want to trust you, whether or not they want to do business with you. So people come to me. It’s because of my opportunity to share with others through the Leadership program that they can decide.” However, it’s important to note that for Jan, Leadership Garland really isn’t about finding clients or pitching her business. Her goal from the very beginning, and still today, was to make an impact in the community she calls home. Jan had a vision to make the program more dynamic, more relevant and offer the very best training possible to emerging leaders in Garland. “The program goes through a natural evolution because times change,” Jan said. “It needs to remain relevant so you constantly stay on your toes and look for ways to introduce concepts and ideas.” For a decade now, that’s what Jan has done in Leadership Garland and in The

Payton Group. She has so immersed herself in the community she serves, she’s able to make connections, analyze trends and find solutions for leadership training techniques as well fresh new marketing concepts. For her, it comes down to a balance of skill and passion. “It’s just really what I’m good at and I get to serve others,” Jan said. “This business, it’s something that helps others along in whatever they’re doing, meeting their goals. It’s an uplifting type of business.” As her business has grown, Jan has continued to renew her commitment to serve as the volunteer Executive Director of Leadership Garland. Her work keeps her busy an average of 10 to 12 hours each day, which she actually enjoys, but much of her joy comes from what she calls, “the extra stuff.” Leadership Garland is a big part of what she finds so fulfilling, and she’s continually honored to be a part. “God giving me this chance was crazy,” Jan said. “I just can’t thank the Chamber enough for allowing me to do it.”

True to her servant’s spirit, Jan desires nothing more than to see her community rise up and serve alongside her, in whatever capacity that may be. Know yourself, know the community, and see where your skills and talents match up. That’s the message Jan shares with each person that goes through the Leadership Garland program, and a message she fully embodies in her own pursuits. “I just believe it’s everybody’s individual responsibility to be a part of the whole,” Jan said. “If we all get in it, then it’s going to represent all of us. We all need to buy in to this. We all need to help. People are so valuable, and if we show them that, maybe they’ll branch out and make a difference.” The Payton Group 618 W.

Getting Garland On the Map with Google Since 2011, Google’s Get Your Business Online team has been on a mission to make it fast, easy and free for businesses to get online. Garland first got involved during a presentation at the National League of Cities, when Garland’s own Mayor Douglas Athas was inspired. Struck by the statistic that only 37% of businesses have claimed a local business listing on a search engine, he knew he had to do his part to help Garland businesses get online. Since that time, the City of Garland and Garland Chamber of Commerce have been dedicated partners with Google in spreading the word about this valuable program. “With Google’s support, we’ve been able to expand opportunities for a lot of different businesses all over town,” Mayor Athas said. In 2014 Google’s initiative, Let’s Put Our Cities on the Map, launched with a small group of pilot cities across the country, one of which was Garland, Texas. The Mayor’s office and Chamber worked diligently to help local businesses increase their online presence by using Google’s online verification tool found at www.gybo.com. The verification process allows local business owners to review their Google Search and Google Maps listings to ensure that the 97% of customers who search for business information online find exactly what they’re looking for. “Local businesses are vital to America’s economic future. In fact, small businesses comprise half of the U.S. GDP and create two-thirds of all new jobs. And although nearly all consumers look online for products and services, many small businesses do not have any web presence at all. We believe every small business should be found online and we offer the ability to do this through Google products like Google Maps – for free.” – Posted on www.gybo.com Through interactive workshops teaching

Led by Executive Director Jan Furtick and committees of program alumni, participants in each annual class are exposed to information about Garland’s history, government, social needs, opportunities and existing processes for improvement through interactive experiences with topnotch facilitators. Upon graduation, participants are encouraged to actively engage in activities which contribute to the growth and betterment of the Garland community and the

region. However, before the program is complete, each class, as a whole, must complete a class project that encompasses what they’ve learned and demonstrates their investment in the community they’ve collectively committed to serve. In 2013, Garland Gives was launched by Leadership Garland Class 32 in response to the Executive Director’s challenge of establishing an on-going project that could be built upon by each annual Leadership class. That year, Class 32 launched the concept of an annual event, to be named Garland Gives, during which class members would put together a full day of community service projects. For the project’s inaugural year, Class 32 served several non-profit organizations with the labor of current class members. In 2014, Class 33 invited the Leadership Garland Alumni group to participate alongside them for the day of service.


“ The vision for Garland Gives is that the event will become an annual, city-wide day of service. In 2015, the day grew once again as Class 34 took on a record 10 projects with teams of five or more, consisting of current class members, alumni, and friends and family. Projects completed to date include a range of activities that motivated leaders to get involved in service and brought awareness of the event to the community as well. Picnic tables have been built and stained, rooms have been cleaned and painted, donations have been collected and organized, and people in need have been clothed and fed, all at local non-profit organizations as a result of Garland Gives. In 2015, two new project concepts were created to add to the day. In order to assist local victims of domestic violence in finding employment, a group of Class 35 participants collected interviewappropriate clothing, provided résumé reviews and conducted mock interviews with the women at New Beginning Center. Another group of Class 35 participants put together a photo scavenger hunt race, with a charitable donation entry fee, that invited Garland-area residents to learn more about the city’s history through a series of clues that led them to historic sites around the downtown square. Both new projects saw great participation and strengthened the firm foundation for future Leadership classes to build on. The vision for Garland Gives is that the event will become an annual, city-wide day of service. As the event grows, it will continue to be led by the year’s current Leadership class, joined by a large group of Leadership Alumni, and will eventually invite other members of the corporate community, churches, and citizens to take part. It is the collective hope of Leadership Garland program participants that in the coming years, the entire community will

take part in some level of service on Garland Gives day, and with exponential growth in the first three years, these local leaders are well on their way to making an impact in the community they serve.

AFFORDABILITY ADVANTAGES | THE GARLAND GUIDE 2016

Garland’s Affordability Advantage for Business The North Texas commercial real estate market is booming, but with more than 200 distinct municipalities in the Dallas Metroplex area, deciding where to invest can be challenging. Competition for prime office and industrial space drives prices up in both fast-growing suburbs and established downtown areas, while developing on open land in the outskirts of the Dallas region often involves expensive investment in new infrastructure. Among all these dynamic market shifts, Garland has emerged as a community with a distinct Affordability Advantage. Garland is a large and vibrant historic suburb of Dallas and, when compared to other fast-growing Metroplex communities, it becomes a uniquely attractive community for commercial investment.

Available Facilities

Garland has many types of land available for lease and purchase. There were 395 acres of land listed for sale in September of 2015 and more than 700,000 square feet of building area was available for purchase. In addition, more than 3.6 million square feet of industrial property was available for lease or sublease and 340,000 square feet of office space was available. Retail space is also abundant, with more than 1 million square feet available for lease .

Garland was recently ranked as the 2nd most affordable city in the country, as measured by its median housing price divided by the population’s median income. Garland also is ranked nationally as a top city for working parents and as a community offering workers one of the highest starting salaries. This reputation as one of the most affordable and attractive large cities in the country naturally extends to commercial and industrial investment opportunities. The East Dallas market for office space, in which Garland is included, is one of the most affordable in the region. An average asking direct lease rate for office space in the East Dallas submarket is $17.34 per square foot. That is the 3rd lowest among submarkets measured by the North Texas Commercial Association of Realtors and 25 percent less than the average lease rate across the Metroplex ($23.09) . In addition, the East Dallas submarket for industrial property, in which Garland is also included, contains the 4th lowest asking direct lease rate for industrial property .

Closer research of recent lease and sales data specifically within Garland show highly competitive prices for commercial and industrial properties. Sales comps for industrial property in Garland for 2015 reveal a median price per square foot of $38.00 and an average price of $57.39. Those property costs are equal to that of the larger City of Dallas, but are also $15-20 less per square foot than comparable communities. Businesses interested in leasing space in the Metroplex have affordable options as well. In Garland, the average annual lease rate for office space in 2015 was $14.00 per square foot. That amount matches the office lease rate in nearby Richardson and is far less than the rates found in Irving, Arlington, McKinney, Plano, Dallas, and the average rate for the Dallas Metro as a whole. Garland has a thriving industrial and manufacturing economy and those interested in leasing industrial land have attractive options. Industrial lease comps for 2015 show a Lease Rate of $6.40, less than the average for the Dallas Metro as a whole and nearly equal to other industrial areas of the City of Dallas and City of Irving.

Catalyst Areas / Redevelopment Opportunities

Garland is recognized as an ‘innerring’ suburb that is almost entirely built out. Communities of the size and type of Garland are limited in how they can develop open land, but there are plentiful reinvestment opportunities for key commercial and industrial areas. Over the past several years, the City of Garland has developed a comprehensive plan called Envision Garland. Envision Garland directs strategic investment


Tax Rates & Affordability to focus districts called Catalyst Areas within the City. Catalyst areas are meant to concentrate limited public resources in select areas for positive economic ripple effects that will improve surrounding neighborhoods and corridors. Garland’s Catalyst Areas have ample property along with access to major arterial routes and highways. These areas are also host to high profile community assets, and offer many affordable and marketable development opportunities. The City of Garland has completed or is developing strategic plans for each of these Catalyst Areas that could include incentive programs that make commercial investment in these areas even more financially attractive.

Existing Infrastructure

Garland prides itself on its history and heritage. While it is an older community, its infrastructure is highly maintained. Companies and investors can take advantage of Garland’s existing infrastructure network when budgeting their development dollars. While providing traditional municipal services, the City of Garland also operates its own water, wastewater treatment, and electric utilities. The City maintains and operates a regional landfill facility and offers both residential and commercial solid waste collection services. Garland Power & Light is Garland’s own electric utility. GP&L has a generation capacity of 529 MegaWatts, 325 miles of overhead lines, and 552 miles of underground lines. Garland’s Water & Wastewater system includes 1,086 miles of water mains, 985 miles of sewer mains, and a storage capacity of 44.35 million gallons.

Incorporated in 1891, the city of Garland is home to more than 234,000 residents, making it the fifth largest city in the DFW Metroplex and twelfth largest in Texas. In spite of its large population, residents value Garland’s small-town feel and outstanding city services.

In 2015, the Garland Chamber of Commerce kicked off the first year’s objectives of a carefully-constructed, collaborative strategic plan. Developed with the input of community stakeholders, City leaders and member businesses, the Chamber set goals in place for the following major focus areas, each of which will continue to grow and evolve through specific tactics that suit the needs of the Garland business community. Workforce Plan Goal: The Garland Chamber of Commerce will act as a liaison between local employers and educational institutions to facilitate the training and continued education of a qualified workforce. The Chamber worked with Garland ISD Career and Technical Education staff in 2015 to develop a task force for the purpose of planning and managing initiatives like Job Shadow Day, the Student Career Expo and internship opportunities with local companies. In 2016, employers can also expect to see a robust job matching system through the Chamber’s partnership with Workforce Solutions Greater Dallas. Small Business Plan Goal: The Garland Chamber of Commerce will drive local small business owners to specialized resources and programming focused on long-term growth and sustainability. The Chamber continues to expand its suite of resources specifically designed for the city’s small business community. By adding an online “Hall of Fame,” supporting growth initiatives like Google’s “Let’s Put Our Cities on the Map,” and creating a simple, easy-to-follow plan for entrepreneurship, local business owners continue to gain access to the newest, most-relevant information Garland has to offer.

Business Retention Plan Goal: The Garland Chamber of Commerce will work to maintain a clear understanding of manufacturers’ needs and facilitate growth opportunities through efficient business practices. As a part of the Garland Economic Development Partnership, the Chamber maintains primary responsibility for serving and retaining Garland’s existing business base. Through initiatives like Dallas County Manufacturers’ Association forums, Manufacturing Day and the development of a comprehensive resource guide, industryleading companies have come to expect customized support from the Chamber. Marketing Plan Goal: The Garland Chamber of Commerce will be the trusted source of timely, relevant information regarding opportunities for involvement and growth in the local business community. Through sharing relevant stories of local business success and advancements in economic development, the Chamber pursues a goal of maintaining purposeful, informative communication with Garland businesses. Satisfaction and interest research continue to inform the Chamber’s strategy in reaching the community.

GETTING SETTLED | THE GARLAND GUIDE 2016

Customize your education

Not many districts across the nation offer open-enrollment options for students, and none have a choice plan as far-reaching as Garland ISD. While other districts use attendance zones to determine a student’s campus, GISD parents are able to choose the school their child attends. Explore the opportunities to customize your education. There’s something for everyone—from three years old-12th grade.

Putting Students on the Path to Success College Readiness

Garland ISD offers numerous dual enrollment and Advanced Placement courses. This allows students to earn college credit while in high school, which can save families thousands of dollars. The district also pays for juniors to take the SAT entrance exam and all eighth through 11th-graders to take the PSAT practice test.

Career Readiness

From audio/video production to automotive technology, business to building trades, culinary to cosmetology and horticulture to health sciences, Garland ISD offers approximately 200 Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses. This allows students to explore career interests and gain employable skills. They can also earn certifications and licensing to be able to start a career or earn additional college credit upon graduation.

On-the-job Experience

GISD IN THREE Take three minutes to learn about three new initiatives in Garland ISD.

Family and Community Engagement (FACE)

The district launched a new Department of Family and Community Engagement, pooling all its staff who focus on outreach. A goal of GISD’s Strategic Plan, FACE will strengthen relationships with families, community members and businesses. Its future includes workshops and seminars for families regarding mental health, best practices in parenting and important issues in society. Academic support for families at home, as well as increased business partnerships and community mentorships are also in the works.

Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM)

STEAM is an educational movement turning students–as young as kindergartners–into real-life inventors, architects and entrepreneurs. GISD hopes to prepare students for an in-demand career field by developing critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration and communication skills. During engineering challenges, all K-12 students design and construct towers, bridges, egg-drop devices, roller coasters

and catapults. Robotics competitions also pit student-built machines against one another as they race to pick up objects and transport them to a secondary location. In addition, maker/creator conventions and science fairs challenge participants to use their imagination to make an impact on society. Yearlong learning culminates in a student showcase called STEAMposium, which is open to the public.

CONTINUING EDUCATION

Montessori

Eastfield College

Considering Montessori? Choose GISD. Herfurth and Luna elementary schools will roll out the prekindergarten through fifthgrade program from 2016-17 to 2020-21. Montessori offers individualized, integrated instruction. The classroom environment contains multisensory materials rather than textbooks, and children move around the room at their own pace, studying art, geography, history, language, math, music, science, etc., at the same time. Grouping grade levels together, Montessori classes form communities in which older children spontaneously share their knowledge with younger peers. Primary classes consist of three and four-year-olds, as well as kindergartners. Additionally, lower elementary includes first-third grades and upper elementary fourth-fifth.

DIVERSE COMMUNITY. SHARED VISION. EXCEPTIONAL EDUCATION. A district of 57,000 students, 7,500 employees, 71 campuses and three communities, Garland ISD ranks as the second-largest district in Dallas County, fourth-largest in Dallas-Fort Worth, 12th-largest in Texas, and is among the 70-largest in America.

only a tool—the surgeon is performing the operation. The robotic instruments simply overcome the anatomical limitations of the human hand by enhancing access and precise maneuverability within a small operating field. Abdominal surgery is where robotic surgery really proves itself, by taking “minimally invasive” a step further. For example, “We can take the three tiny incisions required in laparoscopic gallbladder removal and make that one tiny incision by using the robot,” says Dr. Arze. Also, for some gynecological surgeries, new minimally invasive options at Baylor Scott & White-Garland are becoming possible thanks to the robot.

A Close Watch and Added Convenience

Opened in October 2014, the spacious new 24-bed clinical observation unit is for patients who require more care or observation time than the emergency department can provide, but don’t need extensive hospitalization. The unit allows caregivers to keep a close eye on patients– continuing important treatments and diagnostic tests–without admitting them for a lengthy stay. Before the unit opened, all patients who required observation had to be fully admitted through the emergency department, and that meant a longer stay. The new unit allows patients to be discharged as soon as they’re ready. “This allows patients to receive continued patient care and monitoring in an environment outside of the emergency department without being admitted as an inpatient to the hospital,” says Joan Sabin, RN, interim chief nursing officer for Baylor Scott & White-Garland.

Innovative Care Concept Expands Services for Garland Community

In November 2014, Select Medical opened the doors to a new long-term acute care hospital (LTACH) on Baylor Scott & WhiteGarland’s renovated third floor. The LTACH treats medically complex and critically ill patients whose condition may require a much longer length of stay than those patients treated in a traditional acute care hospital setting. It is owned by Select Medical and operates as a hospital-within-a-hospital. The concept reflects a new model of care for hospitals in a rapidly changing health care landscape. It allows hospitals like Baylor Scott & White-Garland to better serve communities by collaborating with other health care providers to provide access to a wider range of patient care services. It’s a concept Baylor Scott & White-Garland continued in 2015 when Garland Behavioral Hospital, a Universal Health Services (UHS) facility, opened a UHS-owned and operated hospital-within-a-hospital psychiatric facility on Baylor Scott & White-Garland’s campus. The hospital focuses on providing quality adult and geriatric inpatient psychiatric services. “Working with established, highly respected providers like Select Medical and UHS to give members of our community access to a wider range of specialized health services is critical to our mission and to effectively meeting the future health care needs of the people we serve,” says Tom Trenary, president of Baylor Scott & White-Garland. *Physicians are members of the medical staff at one of Baylor Scott & White Health’s affiliated medical centers and are neither employees nor agents of those medical centers, Baylor Scott & White Medical CenterGarland or Baylor Scott & White Health


Getting Around in Garland The city is connected to the world through the DFW International and Love Field Airports, both of which are less than 40 minutes away. Garland also has two rail stations of the Dallas Area Rapid Transit system, DART bus service and an extensive network of major highways and interstates. Located at the crossing of two key heavy freight lines and both regional and interstate transportation corridors, Garland is a powerful part of the regional economy.

Regional/Interstate Roadways

When considering commute times to many major employment areas and local attractions, Garland is a practical choice for residents. Bordered by two major highways, President George Bush Turnpike (190) and Lyndon B Johnson Freeway (635), residents have quick access to the entire region. In recent years, the NTTA completed the final phase of a project that extends the western PGBT terminus south to Interstate 20 through the city of Grand Prairie, forming a half loop around the city of Dallas. Open to traffic in October 2012, it now provides a link that extends the existing PGBT from south of SH 183 south to I-20. With the opening of the newest portion of the roadway, the 11.5-mile western extension, the entire length of the PGBT has increased from 40 to 52 miles. Long-term plans are for the turnpike to form a full outer loop around Dallas, dubbed Loop 9. The competitive advantage of Garland’s central location will be further enhanced

STRETCHING FROM NORTHERN DALLAS CTY. INTO SOUTHERN COLLIN CTY., GARLAND, TX, OFFERS THE BEST OF WHAT THESE DIVERSE NORTH TEXAS REGIONS HAVE TO OFFER.

over the next several years with the completion of the President George Bush Turnpike Fourth Lane Project, which will include widening the PGBT from Interstate 35E to State Highway 78 to four lanes. The project will be built in two major phases. According to a September 2015 NTTA progress report, construction for Phase 1 began in May 2015, which includes PGBT between U.S. 75 and Dallas North Tollway and westbound between Renner Road and U.S. 75. Construction is estimated to last 18 months. Phase 2, which would include the segment between SH 78 and U.S. 75 is anticipated to begin in late 2016 with a 30-month duration. Completion of the entire project is anticipated in 2019.

Heavy Rail

Before the Great Depression, the Santa Fe (now Kansas City Southern) and MK&T Railroads (who later merged with Union Pacific) wrote the history of Garland’s business expansion, primarily centered on the distribution of cotton and onions, and telephone/telegraph services. Heavy rail and passenger rail lines continue to play an important role in Garland’s future development. The development of the Union Pacific Inland Port in Southern Dallas over the next 30 years promises to increase Class I rail traffic throughout the Union Pacific system, including shortline feeders such as the Dallas-GarlandNortheastern Railroad.

Public Transportation Options

Garland has two light rail stations linking residents and employees with the region. Located in the heart of two of Garland’s largest employment centers, the Forest/Jupiter and Downtown Light Rail Stations serve more than 3,000 riders each weekday. The City continues to encourage higher intensity residential, retail and employment uses adjacent to the stations for its near and longterm economic growth. Adding further connectivity and convenience, in 2013, Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) opened the eastern extension of the Blue Line that connects Downtown Garland with Downtown Rowlett. In August of 2014, DART celebrated the opening of the last Orange Line segment to the new DFW Airport Station, which linked the country’s longest light rail system to the world’s third-busiest airport. The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) Mobility 2030 Plan also recommends study of the Kansas City Southern rail corridor north from Downtown Garland to Lake Lavon to accommodate future passenger rail needs (Wylie). This could ultimately give Garland three DART rail stations, further interweaving the city into the center of the Metroplex. Garland also features an extensive bus service which connects to the surrounding DFW Metroplex.

A New Way to Reach the City Garland Launches New App for City Service Requests EAssist, a new app available from the City of Garland, is an easy way for residents to connect with the City to submit service requests, access news and information, and see other nearby requests in progress. Approximately 30 different service request types are available to residents, with more to be added in the coming months. “The number of service request types that are available from the launch date is amazing,” Kevin Slay, Director of Customer Service, said. “We will keep looking for ways to expand and improve the mobile app. Today, the resident simply enters the request type and selects the location using their device’s GPS capabilities, and then it automatically routes it to the City department for resolution.”

Once the app is downloaded, users will be required to create an account using an email address or linking to their Facebook accounts. Once created, users can set what type of notifications they receive, how they are delivered, and several other customizations. Some Garland Power & Light service requests also require registering the user’s City of Garland utility account, which also can be done through eAssist. “EAssist empowers our residents,” Scott Bollinger, Neighborhood Resources Manager, said. “This mobile app creates a direct link from the resident to City Hall in a simple, streamlined way.” EAssist Garland is available now for free download at the Apple App and Google Play Stores.

ENTERTAINMENT & ATTRACTIONS | THE GARLAND GUIDE 2016

Hawaiian Falls

After 10 years, and six additional parks throughout Central and North Texas, Hawaiian Falls Waterpark continues to be the family favorite for attractions in Garland and surrounding areas. With an annual attendance of nearly 200,000 guests and providing more than 200 summer jobs each season, the “flagship” of the Hawaiian Falls parks has experienced steady growth since opening in 2003. More than 80% of the park’s guests travel from outside Garland to enjoy its refreshing attractions. With the goal of “bringing families closer together,” Hawaiian Falls Garland opened with a Lazy River, a multi-level rainforest play structure with a 1,000 gallon bucket, a 6-story slide tower with two speed slides and two twisting tube slides, a multi-lane mat racer slide and a four-story Hawaiian Half-Pipe slide. Over the next decade, the park added many attractions such as a football field sized wavepool, a twin-tube Torpedo body slide, a multi-sensory slide experience called “The Rush” and more. It’s a great environment for reunions, company picnics and church outings or just a leisure family get-together. Today, Hawaiian Falls operates waterparks in Garland, The Colony, Mansfield, Roanoke and Waco, with new parks in Pflugerville and White Settlement, which opened in 2014. www.hfalls.com 4550 North Garland Ave. Garland, TX 75040 (972) 675-8888
