(November 2, 2023 – Clearwater, FL) Koozie Group recently celebrated the brand-new look of its storefront at Stavros Institute’s Enterprise Village during a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

A signature initiative of the Pinellas Education Foundation, Enterprise Village is part of a self-contained educational program that provides a hands-on learning experience for area fifth-grade students, who are able to apply the economics lessons they learn in the classroom to a real-world environment.

Koozie Group is one of over 20 businesses represented at Enterprise Village, which features a layout similar to a shopping mall. The updated storefront features new Koozie Group® branding and signage, updated wall graphics, a wall-length mural, and even new carpeting.

Speaking about the new look of the storefront, Koozie Group® Employee Experience and Communications Manager Trisha Joyce said, “After changing our name from BIC Graphic to Koozie Group, it became necessary to update our storefront at Enterprise Village, as well. We are absolutely delighted with the new look of this space and proud to be a longtime supporter of this incredible hands-on education program.”

Kim Jowell, Chief Executive Officer of the Pinellas Education Foundation, said, “We’re excited about the new Koozie Group storefront. Fifth-grade students in Pinellas County learn economic objectives in their classroom before visiting Enterprise Village, which is undoubtedly a favorite field trip among elementary school students. They’re taught things like how to apply for a job, work in a group setting, and balance a checking account. Koozie Group’s partnership will allow students to put what they learned into action by working in roles such as sales associate, manager, mechanical engineer, financial officer, and customer service. They’ll make business decisions, prepare checks, make deposits, and assist customers, all during their one-day visit to Enterprise Village.”
