Also among today's business updates: Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership and Lucky 7 Food Market; Burgan Real Estate; and Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians.

HUBBARD — Ibold & O’Brien, a law firm that has served communities in Northeast Ohio for more than 40 years, has opened a new office at 30 N. Main St. in the Hubbard Centre One office building.

The office’s practice areas include personal injury; medical and dental malpractice; workers’ compensation; Social Security disability; family law; wills, probate, estate planning, business law and litigation; and bankruptcy and foreclosures.

Hubbard native and Ursuline High School graduate Scott Kuboff is now seeing clients by appointment.

“I joined Ibold & O’Brien in 2017 because firm partners Dennis Ibold and Casey O’Brien were family-focused, and the community felt a lot like my hometown,” Kuboff said in a news release. “Bringing our experienced law practice into Hubbard — where my grandfather, aunt and uncles have owned businesses — is incredibly exciting. I look forward to seeing friendly and familiar faces and using our legal expertise to help the community.”

Lucky 7 Food Market receives refrigeration unit through TNP program

WARREN — The Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership awarded Lucky 7 Food Market, 1265 E. Market St., a refrigeration unit through its Healthy Community Store Initiative program.

Funds came from an Ohio Finance Fund grant through the Healthy Food for Ohio program, a public-private partnership that provides loans and grants for food retailers developing new or renovating existing fresh food retail options in lower-income, underserved communities throughout Ohio. 

Lucky 7 and other community stores that are part of the Healthy Community Store Initiative in Warren are working with Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership to upgrade their equipment to increase their ability to sell fresh fruits and vegetables. 

TNP is continuing to spread awareness about food insecurity through its Community Food Security Access Plan, which noted that 50 percent of Warren is designated a “food desert” by the United States Department of Agriculture. 

“This funding represents a great stepping stone to bolstering infrastructure at community stores, providing the necessary resources to help sustain their fresh produce offerings,” Christian Mosely, TNP’s food access coordinator, said in a news release. “Through our partnerships and community organizing, we continue to open doors for residents of Warren to educate and challenge the mindsets on how important it is to have accessible healthy foods within our communities.”

Colleen Richardson joins Burgan Real Estate team

CANFIELD — Burgan Real Estate has added Colleen Richardson to its team of residential real estate agents.

Richardson, of Youngstown, is a graduate of Ursuline High School and Youngstown

State University, where she earned an undergraduate degree in elementary school education. She received master’s degrees in literacy and educational leadership from Walden University in Minnesota and the University of Scranton in Pennsylvania, respectively. She was an elementary school teacher at St. Patrick School and the Youngstown Community School before becoming an advanced learners coordinator at a charter school in King of Prussia, Pa. 

“I have always been committed to the power of education and the impact it has on people developing and making good decisions,” Richardson said in a news release. “Making the switch to a career in real estate provides me the opportunity to not only learn something new but also to educate people on safely guiding them on their journey to find a better home with my help and the help of the rest of the Burgan Bunch.”
