Old Town’s Rizzi Designs
is growing once again, but this time in a whole new way. The design firm recently announced the purchase of Perspective2
(P2), the 6,800 square foot events venue, also in Old Town.
The project began when former P2 owner Lynne Brown contacted Rochelle Rizzi to see if she was interested in the expansion opportunity.
“I get presented with opportunities to grow or invest or donate every day,” says Rizzi, owner of Rizzi Designs. “I had to sit back and say, ‘Is this something that could make sense?’”
Ultimately, the answer to that question was, “Yes.” Under Rizzi Designs, the venue will soon receive a new name and become the home of RD I Do, Rizzi’s bridal branding division, as well as their special events division.
“It turned out to be a very affordable way to get these divisions to make sense on their own,” says Rizzi. “It’s going to be a sister company of Rizzi, so what we’re creating is a small family of businesses.”
In addition to the firm’s physical expansion, Rizzi Designs continues to add new staff. Two new hires have recently been added, with two more hires expected before the end of the year. Rizzi anticipates the firm’s growth to continue in 2013 as the new venue begins to evolve.
