Jamey and Raquelle Felsing are part-time, Totally Nutz franchise owners operating out of the Las Vegas, Nevada area. They celebrated their one-year anniversary with Totally Nutz in October of 2018. Our leadership team asked Jamey to describe why he chose Totally Nutz and about his first year as a business owner.
“The most important factor that led me to my Totally Nutz franchise was the desire to have a business to call my own”, said Jamey. “I am still working full-time in IT; however, I wanted something that I could start out gradually and then ease into it full-time when the time is right. In the meantime, my family and I are working events on the weekends and making gift boxes year-round.”
“I like the flexibility of the Totally Nutz franchise model. I don’t have to commit to a certain timeline for going full-time, nor do I have territory restrictions,” added Jamey. “I can work when and where I choose and make decisions around my other commitments”.
“I run just about every aspect of my business, from booking events, doing accounting, and creating marketing for gift box sales,” stated Jamey. “My family, mainly Raquelle and mother-in-law, Robbin, help me by working with me at events. The three of us will set up, sell and tear down”.
“If the event is big enough, we will get other family members to help as needed. We all get together to make gift boxes when we have large orders. We make a day of it most times and it is fun family time well spent,” concluded Jamey.
After spending 4 years in the Air Force, Jamey has worked in IT for the past 20 years. Raquel has been in the civil engineering field for the past 25 years. The Felsing’s have been married for 22 years in January of 2018. They have two adult daughters.
