Shabby Chick Cleaners Case Study

Duncan, Oklahoma 73533
Year 2016
Counties Stephens County
Industries Manufacturing
Product or Service
Certified all-natural cleaners, soaps, and lotions
Challenges
Startup company Shabby Chick Cleaners originally began producing its line of certified all-natural cleaning products at home, but kept growing and selling out at area farmer’s markets. Shabby Chick realized it had a valuable product, but it was unable to keep up with demand at home.
Of Interest
Instead of outsourcing production, Shabby Chick chose to maintain control of its product and approached the Duncan Center for Business Development (DCBD) about locating in the business incubator. Since entry into the DCBD, sales and manufacturing have increased over 300%
Community Impact
Shabby Chick recently signed a lease on a 6,500 square-foot facility complete with offices, warehouse, and factory space.

Of Interest
Once DR2 chose to locate in Duncan, Oklahoma, their 25,000 square foot high security build-to-suit was finished in only 8 months.
Community Impact
In addition to adding jobs to the local economy, DR2 also diversifies the industries represented in the community.
