The 1-year-old company, founded by Joshua Mango and his wife Kimberly Mango, recently moved into the Green Garage
in Detroit's Midtown neighborhood. The three-person company, it also has an intern, has carved out a niche by combining digital marketing and Detroit-based small businesses in need of it.
"We became really passionate about Detroit when we lived here in 2010 in a place in Lafayette Park," Joshua Mango says.
The company has since grown from its first client (dad's plumbing firm) to a roster of a little more than half a dozen companies. Joshua Mango expects to grow that customer base a few more this year thanks to its move to Green Garage.
"We didn't need a big office," Joshua Mango says. "We just needed a place to call home."
