Fayette County Business Spotlight!

Kuennen's House of Power, Main Street Maynard

Fayette County Business Spotlight!

As  is common with many Fayette County's entrepreneurial businesses, Kuennen's House of Power began as a rural, on-farm business and as it grew, found that a location in town was a better fit. Kuennen's has been doing business since 1997, with the last four years from its location in downtown Maynard. Mark Kuennen and his family own and operate the snowmobile, ATV and motorcycle business. Mark is a big supporter of the Sumner Trail Blaz-zers Snowmobile Club and helps groom some 200 miles of snowmobile trails in the area.

Kuennes's specializes in buying and selling used powersports vehicles, and offers repair for all makes and models of motorcycles, snowmobiles and ATV's. Kuennen's keeps a large inventory of parts for their  growing customer base. Regular customers live as far as 60 miles from Maynard, but their flourishing online presence is broadening their market considerably.

The family has been taking and posting exciting videos with a GoPro camera that has really helped draw attention to their business. Their location in Highway 150, "on the way" to so many places, and word of mouth advertising are also helping expand Kuennen's customer base. The company sees growth in its motorcycle sales, and has expanded its line of clothing and accessories too. Check out Kuennen's on Facebook - Braaap!
