Jennifer Brown and Steve Kudron are preening their business for what they hope to be a year of flying high.

The pair specializes in rubber ducks of all feathers – from devils, to referees to monkey and cow ducks – at their soap shop-turned duck dealership, the Quacker Gift Shop, in Englewood.

In December, they moved their business and thousands of ducks out of the basement of their home and into the 3,000-square-foot warehouse and storefront, following a year that saw more than $95,000 in sales.

Kudron and Brown started their business – formerly called The Soapbox Co. – in 2005, selling homemade soaps, some of which contained loofahs and rubber ducks. When customers began asking to purchase the ducks, sans soap, the idea for the Quacker Gift Shop was hatched.

The couple got help from Jim Olp at the Metro Denver Small Business Development Center, who they say has helped them every step of the way, to push their fledgling idea out of the nest.
