Three years ago, Jeff Kaufman and Jody Cutler opened their whole foods store with a $200,000 loan backed by the Small Business Administration, and lots of hope that Roots Market would grow in the community. Today, the 11,000-square-foot store in Clarksville employs 40 - up from 25 when it opened - and the business has grown appreciably each year, so much so that the owners are hoping to open a second location in Montgomery or Baltimore county. With three years in business, the grocery store has been named an Entrepreneurial Success by the Baltimore District office of the SBA, which will present the award during the Maryland Small Business Week Awards ceremony next month.
