Small businesses that focus on natural products and food are making tweaks and improvements worth noting.

Rebranded

Botanical Indulgence in Neenah changed its name to the Natural Boutique. It’s a specialty tea, aromatherapy, natural beauty products and jewelry shop at 1162 Westowne Drive.

“We’ve been expanding some of our marketing outside of the area and people were confusing us with a florist. We’ve always been a natural boutique,” owner Sandy White said. “In flipping the name, it gives a better idea of what we are.”

The store celebrates its rebranding and 11th anniversary this week. See more at thenaturalboutique.com or its Facebook page.

Evolved

The bustling three-part chicken/ice cream/Mexican pastry shop at 2563 W. College Ave. is now a two parter. The Chicken Palace and Michoacana brand ice cream shop are open as usual, but the bakery shelves are now gone.

“We needed the space for more tables,” bakery employee Carlos Lopenz said. “We still have our bakery on Oneida Street.”

That original Reyes Bakery is at 2305 S Oneida St., Appleton.

Expanding

An organic produce delivery service from the southeast part of the state is expanding into the Fox Cities, Oshkosh and Fond du Lac. Brewers Organics has been dropping off boxes of produce at customers’ homes and offices every week for the last two growing seasons from its Milwaukee base. Owner Amanda Ferguson said her company supports and partners with local organic farmers. See more at www.brewersorganics.com.
