King Drive Is

King Drive Is Our mission is to grow our community by supporting businesses, organizations, and all who live and work in the greater King Drive area. Since our inception in 1992, the BID’s mission has been to improve the King Drive District by fostering a culture that enjoys a trendy and authentic retail experience while attracting businesses who embrace the commitment to hard work and strong character that the area was founded on.

And so far, expectations have been exceeded. In the past 15 years there has been over $200 million of new development in the BID.

Gee's Clippers Barber and Beauty Salon

A friend recently sent me this picture and I actually got a little emotional. This picture was taken at the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony of the Gee’s MKE Wellness Clinic in my barbershop. Behind that mic is a man that grew up in a household of 7 kids (all 1 year apart), a sickly mother an overworked father, living in the inner city of Milwaukee. I had a speech impediment where as I couldn’t speak a full sentence without stuttering. Statistics says I shouldn’t be behind that mic, speaking in front of a few hundred people, let alone own the establishment where we are. Don’t tell me what God can’t do! I’m in the process of developing a program to show any aspiring barbershop/salon owner EXACTLY how to build a successful business. I have so much in store for y’all in 2021! Stay tuned! #Gee’sMasterclass #Coming2021 #GodIsGood #DefyTheOdds #Blessed #GeesMKEWellnessClinic #GeeTurns50

I am glad to be part of the 30th Anniversary video of the Wisconsin Main Street, speaking on King Drive Main Street. Thankful for the support from each of you shopping at businesses in the Historic King Drive Bid. You support of local businesses is helping to make Milwaukee's Dr. Martin Luther King Drive vibrant.
