What’s Up Wyoming and the city want to help you re-discover the pleasure of doing business here in Wyoming with local business owners who put their heart and soul into their endeavors. Each week we will bring you short profiles of local businesses in the hopes that you’ll be inspired to shop local and spur recovery in your home town while you’re taking care of your family. Here is the fourth round of business profiles:
It was always a dream to run her own practice, says Emily Shull, O.D. In 2013, she decreased her position from full-time to part-time at the Cincinnati Eye Institute to open Sight Eyecare & Eyewear at 500 Wyoming Avenue.
As a resident of Wyoming, the location made perfect sense, and her dream of providing personalized service and high quality eye products to her patients from her own business could become reality. Dr. Shull says what makes her practice unique is her emphasis on patient care and the chance to build lifelong relationships with every person who walks in the door.
Dr. Shull continues in more specialized treatments of ocular diseases at the Cincinnati Eye Institute and often presents at local professional optometric education programs. She can answer your questions about glaucoma, cataracts, LASIK and many more eye health conditions. She and her team can also help you select eyeglasses or be fitted for contact lenses.
Sisters Caitlin Steininger and Kelly Trush, and longtime friend Karen Klaus, share some strong bonds – with each other, with food, with their families and with Wyoming. All of these important relationships are evident in the two popular restaurants: Station Family + BBQ and CWC The Restaurant.
“Wyoming is where we were raising our families and it felt right to grow our dreams here, too,” says Trush.
Station embodies all their priorities with a casual, family-friendly atmosphere, friendly service, and great food that even the pickiest young eater will love. As Wyoming returns to near-normal activity levels after the shutdown, both restaurants feature an outdoor dining experience centered on the city’s new DORA – Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area. Station offers live music on the gazebo and Wyoming Food + History tours, as well as Last Call Trivia on Thursday nights.

While visiting friend and business associate Brandon Victor at his Wyoming HVAC business Wyoming Heating & Air, J.D. Raphael made a discovery – Wyoming’s business district had no ice cream parlor.
That realization was the motivation to launch Cowboy Cones. Craving ice cream on that fateful day, Raphael saw a potential business opportunity and he and Victor decided to make it reality.
Six months later, the duo launched Cowboy Cones at 508 Wyoming Avenue. The two had worked on the heater in the building earlier in the year and learned the space was vacant. Just a day later, they signed a lease.
Cowboy Cones sells super premium ice cream from The Chocolate Shoppe in Madison, Wisconsin. You can order a selection of cones, sundaes, shakes and floats from dozens of flavors of ice cream, plus sorbet and soy based ice cream.
Watch for a second location in Harrison soon.
