TROUP COUNTY, Ga. (WRBL) – Two businesses in Troup County took off because of the COVID-19 pandemic despite the difficult circumstances. Burrow Warehouse and Modern Floral Preservation began business in the midst of the pandemic and have continued thriving this year.
Owners of Burrow Warehouse, Kesha and Michael Coniglio, bought their event venue the last day of 2019 before things took a sharp turn in early 2020. The couple was in the process of remodeling the building when many businesses shut down due to COVID-19.
“All the brides, all nonprofits that usually have events to help generate revenue for the year had stopped. All city events for Christmas parties, things like that, everything just came to a halt. That’s when we started to kind of panic a little bit. We started to try to reach out to see if there was any help and there was none, for us,” said Kesha Coniglio, Co-owner of Burrow Warehouse.
