Startup Stories: Couple starts a new business and finds ways to attract customers in large numbers after a few slow months.

Jera and Brad Deal of Peoria, Illinois really put the “accident” in “accidental entrepreneurs.” After successful careers in business — he in management and she in marketing — it’s not surprising that Jera and Brad would eventually go into business for themselves.
