Longtime friends Tony Pechacek and Greg Lackey started new business Kinni Kayak this month, debuting it with a float during River Falls Days.
The new company offers kayak rental and shuttle service to the “lower Kinni” float that begins at the Glen Park landing and ends just past the County Road F bridge near Kinnickinnic State Park.
They charge $35 per kayak on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, $25 per kayak Monday-Thursday. Pechacek said he schedules the trips then the partners meet clients right in Glen Park.
Eventually they may get a permit to do more out of Pechacek’s Park Street home; right now they’re storing the company’s eight kayaks there.
The men say they don’t intend to grow the business very large. The future may bring as many as 14 kayaks, but that’s about as big as they plan to get.
“This is just a sideline,” said Pechacek.
The partners and fellow UW-River Falls students also own Showtime Entertainment, LLC, a DJ company they started in 2001. The DJ business will remain their central focus.
