Small Business and Entreprenuership

MODE® was founded in 2007 by Ciara Stockeland and her husband Jim Stockeland. Through an opportunity to liquidate a truckload of designer overstock, Ciara and Jim created the MODE brand. Always intending to build a brand, they found the franchising was the best way to grow the MODE brand and bring it into communities throughout the Midwest. The first MODE franchise was located in Bismarck, ND.

Ciara recently testified before the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship and talks to Social Geek Radio hosts about the Coalition to Save Local Business.
