Downtown business invests more than $30,000
TIFFIN, OHIO – May 9, 2022 – Renaissance of Tiffin owner Dave Spridgeon announced today the expansion of the Renaissance of Tiffin on Wheels with the purchase and renovation of a new party bus, the third in its fleet. This expansion will include a $30,000 investment and the hiring of six new employees. The new bus will be available in early June.
Spridgeon was pleased with the announcement, saying “We started this business in 2020 to attempt to survive the shutdown, but this business has filled a need and is thriving in Tiffin.”
The Renaissance of Tiffin received the state Heritage Ohio Main Street Business of the year award in 2021 for their growth during the shutdown through the party bus business. The service often hosts community members for events like casino trips, winery stops, bachelor and bachelorette parties, retirements parties, weddings, birthdays, proms, and more. The trips often take people to major cities in Ohio from Toledo and Cleveland to Columbus and Cincinnati.
Tiffin City Mayor Aaron Montz said, “We would like to congratulate Dave on the expansion of a successful business and are pleased to see this endeavor continuing to grow in Tiffin.”
