The owners of Evergreen Beauty College have thought for years that they might like to open a new location east of the Cascades. They just didn’t know where.
All it took was a visit to Yakima a couple years ago and the Trieu family was sold.
“We went out to Miner’s and saw a bunch of families eating together, which you don’t see very much on the west side,” said company president Joe Trieu, who runs the business with help from his two brothers, his sister and their mom.
“We started thinking that our culture fits well with the family culture in Yakima, and my mom said, ‘we should open a school here.’ So we started looking around at some possible locations and finally found the right one.”
