“Over decades of experience, I have learned that business and trust are earned,” John Kunyczka, Jr. said.
“Our clients trust us to find the right solutions, and we are going to provide quality service to meet their needs,” the owner of United Benefits Group added. “We don’t take our clients for granted; we appreciate and value each client and work to ensure their expectations are met.”
Kunyczka’s business has been around for 15 years.
He began his professional career in the banking industry in 1995. After four years in the industry, he changed to the insurance industry to work with his father.
“In 2005, I had the opportunity to start my agency,” Kunyczka said. “United Benefits has continued growing its product portfolio and services ever since.”
He said his business is unique due to its approach to solutions and engagement.
“We understand that employers are different and need specific solutions,” Kunyczka said. “United Benefits delivers tailored services to accomplish their goals.”
He said he would recommend Maple Shade to someone looking to open a business here because the township offers new businesses the resources needed to develop and grow.
“The township is a business-friendly community that supports economic development for businesses of all sizes,” Kunyczka said. “I believe United Benefits offers valuable resources and services to local businesses.”
So what is the greatest challenge the Maple Shade Business Association faces?
“It is maintaining valuable relationships to increase membership growth and offer services that support local business needs,” he said.
Kunyczka grew up in southern New Jersey and graduated from Rider University.
He has been living in Hamilton, N.J. for the past five years.
Kunyczka says in his free time he likes traveling abroad to learn about other cultures and trying different types of food.
Owner and creative director at Amped to Dance Dana Marie Randolph said the most important thing she’s learned when it comes to business is persistence.
“Never give up,” she said. “Even when enrollment is low and quotas are missed as long as I keep believing and working towards the vision everything will work out.
“I can’t give up because there is no plan B,” Randolph added. “I must continue to put everything I have in making the dream I have a reality.”
Amped to Dance opened in Maple Shade in July of this year.
“I’ve been professionally training in various styles of dance since the age four,” Randolph said. “After years of teaching at community centers in Philadelphia my passion for music, movement, and teaching collided together as the vision of helping people express themselves through dance came to life.”
So, what’s unique about her business?
“Amped to Dance is the dance studio where passion meets movement,” Randolph said. “We pride ourselves on fostering self-confidence and creativity through dance in each and every person we encounter.
“Amped to Dance is more than a business, even more than a dance school,” she added. “We are a place that encourages self-expression, healing, and love through creative arts.”
Randolph said she would recommend Maple Shade to someone looking to open a business here “because the town is very welcoming.” Also, she said It was a fairly simple process to get started.
She said it has been pleasant being a member of the Maple Shade Business Association.
“I am a member of MSBA because I’d like to learn and grow as a business owner in this town,” Randolph said. “I want to ensure the success of my business and what better way to be a part of a community of like-minded people.
“There are also so many qualities that I possess that may meet the needs of my fellow business owners,” she added.
Randolph grew up in Philadelphia and graduated from Temple University with a BA in communications and Lincoln University with a MEd degree.
She said she and her family have lived in Maple Shade since May 2019.
In her spare time, Randolph enjoys spending quality, “silly” time with her family, exploring new restaurants, reading, and writing.
