Extraordinary teamwork is what both Minnick women site as the key to success this past year.

The Mark Minnick family's group of local businesses, ranging from death-care supply to precast concrete manufacturing, was deemed essential by the CDC throughout the pandemic.

In order to keep all operations safe for employees and smoothly doing business as usual, mother and daughter, Alice and Grace, increased their hours and workloads dramatically over a year ago and continue to run at that pace.

For a look at what just what this entailed and how everyone has fared, WBOI's Julia Meek invited the pair into the studio to discuss the experience.

You can learn more about the family's group of businesses at the Minnick Services website.

A Fort Wayne native, Julia is a radio host, graphic artist, and community volunteer, who has contributed to NIPR both on- and off-air for forty years. Besides being WBOI's arts & culture reporter, she currently co-produces and hosts Folktales and Meet the Music.
