State Representative Jackie Haas (R-Kankakee) is continuing to recognize small businesses around her district. Her last local business of 2022 was Frank’s Appliance Center & Sleepsource in Bradley. Rep. Haas presented owners Mark and Joanne Keen with an official certificate of recognition from the Illinois House of Representatives to note their contribution of great service to the community!
Frank’s Appliance Center & Sleepsource was founded in 1961 by Frank and Adella Petkunas—Joanne’s parents, and the Keens took the reins of the operations over from them in 2002. For a longstanding community business, Rep. Haas was excited to present the family with this recognition!
“This is a locally owned and operated business which means money spent here goes right back into our community,” said Rep. Haas. “This is incredible to have a family business transcend over 60 years and I’m thrilled to congratulate them on not only their long-standing service to our community but also their commitment to serving those in need as well.”
Haas’ visit came at the right time—the business is running a promotional sale through the end of January. If you buy a mattress for $599 and up, they will donate a mattress to Sleep in Heavenly Peace, a non-profit organization that provides beds to children and families in need. To date, Frank’s Appliance Center & Sleepsource has donated nearly 300 mattresses this year.
Representative Haas encourages her constituents to check out Frank’s; area residents can find their store at 1035 W Superior Street in Bradley.
The Representative will continue recognizing local businesses throughout the New Year. If you know of a business in the area that you believe should be recognized, reach out to Rep. Haas’ District Office at email@example.com!
