Byron and Chris Ariyaratnam were all smiles this evening when I stopped by the location of their new business, Great Kutz, in Valu Plaza on West Main Street. Byron was busy training the new staff, who will be ready to start cutting hair in the morning.
Chris and Byron are partners in The Mane Attraction, and Byron is a partner in Mr. Wine and Liquor. They're the kind of local entrepreneurs Batavia needs. And they are proof that there are plenty of business people who believe in Batavia and are willing to invest both their money and their effort in building a sustainable Batavia business community.
