Cool J’s Apparel is a double minority founded company that was established in May of 2020. Toni Hopkins created this business because she knows there is a need for this in the local community. Her goal is to provide quality, affordable apparel that makes women feel and look beautiful.

Cool J’s caters to all women, but the business’s primary focus is on women who live in areas where there are not many retail options. Toni Hopkins has a strong background in finance, and she has been in the field for 15 plus years.

Toni obtained a Community Advantage loan from Justine PETERSEN for working capital to establish the lease and cover all required start-up operating costs and inventory for equipment and furnishings. Working capital funds will also be used for marketing and advertising.
