Jeff Kachuba and Mary Topoleski: Owners of We Rock The Spectrum Kids Gym
What made you open a kids’ gym? Jeff and Mary’s four year old, Nicholas, was diagnosed with SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder) at age 2. Jeff and Mary were driving long distances to facilities with equipment designed specifically to help people with SPD. SPD is a condition where the brain has difficulty receiving and reacting to sensory information. Kids’ gyms with specialized equipment provide sensory integration therapy, which is the best form of treatment for SPD. There was a real need for this type of gym in Ocean County and Jeff and Mary stepped in to meet that need.
What do you like most about being in business? It is great to be able to provide a place for children to be themselves. Being a business owner is exciting and provides new and different challenges every day.
What do you like most about banking with First Financial?
The easy to use personalized service of the Business Development Department is great. Also the fact that they provided the loan to help open up the business was a plus!
