Pandemic Breeds Boom in Woman-Owned Wellness BusinessesApr 29, 2022 11:28AM ● By Nicole Teitler

But with those vacancies came an opportunity for new dreams and communities to build. The towns of Hoboken and Jersey City, in particular, saw a boom in women opening businesses focused on wellness. Here’s a list of these businesses born during the pandemic.*
