Jennifer Rose has been a bartender for 12 years, and at her latest location Kraab Up Ballaz Sports Bar for four years. It hasn't been a bed of roses, but rather a journey of ups, many downs, grit and determination.

“I started out selling phone cards underneath a bus stop and saved towards the purchase of a container. From the container I would throw parties and continue to save.

I finally rented a small bar. I got robbed several times and was brought down to my knees. I was determined, however, to rise above each setback.

I am here now and use excellent customer service and competitive prices to stay in the game... patrons want to know that their dollar can stretch!”

Indeed, they do!
