Talking with AR Workshop Baton Rouge on Passion, Business and Life Lessons!

Local Leaders: The Podcast Season 4 Episode 1

Kelly Webster is a female business owner in Baton Rouge who owns the very first franchise of an ultra popular DIY Boutique called AR Workshop!

This edition of Local Leaders the podcast covers her decision to seek a franchise of AR Workshop and how her fiancé Jimmy Miller provides a ENTHUSIASTIC and positive spin she is thankful to have.

We take you through her early thoughts on covid and how her company transitioned quickly to adapt.

In this episode you also feel as though you have meet Maureen (Anders) and Adria (Ruff). These two are the designers behind the 2010 design company Anders Ruff®, a popular graphic design, party styling, DIY blog and online shop. Anders Ruff® quickly evolved from an Etsy shop, to their own branded e-commerce platform and blog where thousands would visit and shop their online store for printable party goodies. They coined the blog column, “Ruff Draft”, which was a source of DIY inspiration and ideas for many years.

6 years later and many creative ideas completed, these two had demands from fans and clients to offer hands-on workshops where they could teach their skills to others. Their dream of coming out from behind the screen to offer DIY workshops for home decor and other creative skills came true!

The vision was to create an inspiring and charming boutique workshop that not only offers classes but sells unique and beautiful retail items that Maureen and Adria use in their styling jobs and photoshoots for magazines and celebrities! AR Workshop® was born! Their DIY loving audience quickly noticed the AR Workshop® brand and concept, and started asking to open their own locations. Now here they are, over 3 years later with more than 150 franchise locations across the country with a brand new one in Baton Rouge courtesy of franchise owner Kelly Webster!
