INDIAN RIVER — Local custom branding business, Baytees, is moving from its current location at 1601 Standish Ave. in Petoskey, to 6742 S. Straits Hwy. 

Co-owners and married couple Joe and Julie Beattie are the team behind Baytees. They have rented space in the Petoskey location since 2017 and recently closed on a building of their own, where they will not only work, but also live.

“We set an appointment and took a look at (the building) with the Realtor that was selling it. And we said, ‘you know, it’d be really cool if we could live here too.’ And he’s like, ‘Well, I don’t see why that would be a problem,’” Joe said. “So we went in front of the zoning board and got zoning approval to occupy and run a business out of the same unit and so that just made total financial sense for us.”
