Four years ago, after talking to a friend who owned the Rolling Stone franchise, the Kosecs decided to try their hand at selling cookware.During the spring and fall, business is a little slow but in a couple of weeks, when the snow starts falling, business will pick up again, Judy said.Like so many businesses in the valley, Rolling Stone is seasonal and takes off in the summer and winter.The Kosecs work out of their home so balancing family and business is critical.”Working out of our house works well,” Judy said. “I get a little tired of having product in the garage instead of a car, but oh well.”Rolling StoneOwner: Mike and Judy KosecAddress: 1562 and 12th Street, RifleOpen Hours: 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays through FridaysPhone: 625-8018Fax: 625-8019E-mail: mjkem@sopris.netYears in business: fourNumber of employees: None.
