Your neighborhood?
Walnut Hills

Tell us more about your business and your origin story.
Originally our team started through relationships as neighbors in Walnut Hills. Seeing a desire in our neighborhood for work instead of labor. As the brainstorm turned into a reality Green Man Twist formed, as a business to truly bring the community together as well as create space for entrepreneurship training through the business. As RH always said “The problem is we don’t know each other.” Green Man Twist is a space that people from all walks of life can come and have a delicious treat and get to know their neighbors.

Share your thoughts on the idea of “building community through entrepreneurship.”
We love to build community through entrepreneurship, we each have different skills and talents and as we come together as a community we are able to use our talents to create something awesome!

Since graduating we have opened our business in the Walnut Hills neighborhood and are celebrating our Grand Opening this weekend.
