Tyler Hegewald bought Prairie Soup Company in March of 2021. By July, he opened the restaurant's second location inside NewBo City Market.
"I always wanted to own a business," Tyler said. "And I always thought NewBo City Market would be a good place for it. I figured that Prairie Soup could use a second location."
Prairie Soup Company's menu features fresh-made soups and sandwiches. Its first location, 425 Second St. SE, is only open on week days, which is why the Market's Thursday through Sunday schedule was the perfect addition to Tyler's business.
As a NewBo City Market Shopkeeper, Tyler and his business will connect with thousands of customers each and every week.
Shopkeepers like him are the heart of the Market. They are a community of entrepreneurs, developing both their products and skills to scale up and launch new businesses throughout Eastern Iowa. With every successful venture comes the opportunity for new businesses to open inside the Market, so we are constantly searching for that “next big thing at NewBo.”
