Open Gates Business Development Corporation, known as Open Gates Group, consists of 8 companies located in the Kalona, Iowa area. Each company reflects the entrepreneurial culture created by founder, Bill Evans. Formed in 2003 and historically operating in the background, it wasn’t until 2015 that Open Gates Group became an important role in the family of companies.
Now, Open Gates Group provides human resources, business planning, administrative, and marketing services for the family of companies. Our primary focus is growing organic and local food supply chains. The Open Gates’ mission is to create value and enhance lives. Each business is operated by a managing partner(s) who manages the day to day duties and ensures the company’s success.
As needs arise within our family of companies, Bill, and his like-minded leadership team, evaluate the need and decide if a new company is needed to fill the void.
