Out on the Patio
Katrina Kohnle and her husband had always talked about opening their own business. So in 2006, the mother of three left her job as a dermatology sales rep and founded Out on the Patio. Initially, Katrina envisioned her store as a place where customers could simply gather design ideas for outdoor projects or connect with design vendors. She soon discovered, though, that with furniture as with flamethrowers, people enjoyed testing items in the store before buying them. Katrina obliged by adding more and more furniture lines to her show room, which now contains everything from tables and bar stools to fire pits and heaters.
