Sweet Signs for Gaby et Jules

In spring 2019, Lori and Fred Rongier, founders and owners of Gaby et Jules, opened an additional location in East Liberty for their much-loved macaron shop. The owners worked with URA’s Siena Kane, entrepreneurship investment specialist, to finance its storefront renovation work.

"Entrepreneurship involves calculated risk and a ton of passion. Thanks to the innovative programs at the URA, we have been able to build not one, but 2 successful businesses in the past 10 years. Thank you to the URA for sharing my passion!"

-Lori Rongier, Co-owner of Gaby et Jules
