No, there's not a catch. SCORE's experienced mentors will help you take your business to the next level.
When it comes down to it, behind just about every small business is an entrepreneur hoping to turn their passion into a paycheck.

Changes allow gardeners and developing farmers to sell at the Arnold Farmers' Market.
Arnold Farmers’ Market commissioners have revised the bylaws to allow gardeners to sell their homegrown produce at the Saturday event held at the Fox C-6 Middle School property. “This change will positively benefit both established farmers that currently sell their produce at the market and those green thumb backyard growers who are new to the market,” said a city news release issued Friday afternoon. Market customers will also see more seasonal produce sold. Anyone with questions or comments about the changes should contact Arnold City Administrator Matthew Unrein at 636-282-2383 or Arnold Farmers’ Market Manager Terry Long at 636-282-2380 ext.1403.

There are currently eight businesses registered for the Arnold Farmers' Market which is scheduled to open on the Fox C-6 School district property on May 5.

Cici's Pizza is actually sandwiched by two empty real estate spaces.
A few weeks ago ArnoldPatch said that there is a vacant commercial business real estate space at 231 Arnold Crossroads Center. There is another vacant space at 233 Arnold Crossroads Center. Cici's Pizza is located between two vacant business spaces. A new sports bar and grill will open at Arnold Crossroads Center, near the intersection of Hwy. 141 and north Jeffco Boulevard, in the near future. So what type of business should go into the "other" vacant space? The business would have a large corner location with large panoramic windows on two walls. Nearby are fast food restaurants China King, Panda Express, Fazoli's, Arby's, Wendy's, and Steak n' Shake. A sit-down Italian restaurant, Terrazza Grill, the Drury Inn hotel, the Pear Tree Inn …
Polar Opposites will be the second frozen yogurt restaurant to open in Arnold within the last year.
Contractors placed the Polar Opposites, a frozen yogurt restaurant, sign on the real estate space bewteen the Starbucks cafe and Panda Express Chinese fast food restaurant. Starbucks is at 3884 Hwy. 141. Panda Express is at 3880 State Route 141. No date has been announced for the new business' opening day. After inspectors for Rock Community Fire Protection District and the City of Arnold have approved the renovations—and the business opens—Polar Opposites will be the second frozen yogurt restaurant to open in Arnold. Orange Leaf frozen yogurt, at 2259 Michigan Ave., opened within the past year and is located next to Five Guys Burgers and Fries in the Water Tower Place shopping mall.
Hot Shots franchise owners have posted signs in the former Tilted Kilt sports bar location.
