My Backyard, LLC

Maureen Kennedy is the owner and operator of My Backyard in Ocean Pines, Maryland. Opening her store had been a dream for Ms. Kennedy. She took her interest in the outdoors and nature and turned it into a business. In preparing for her needs in opening the store, Ms. Kennedy sought the assistance of the Maryland SBDC – Eastern Region. Working with business consultant, Tim Sherman, Ms. Kennedy developed her business plan and cash flow projections. This provided her with the foundation and information she required to move forward with her business. May 1, 2018, Ms. Kennedy opened her business, My Backyard. The business focuses on nature and bird-based merchandise and supplies.

Her business targets retired individuals who enjoy nature and birds, vacationers to the Ocean City area and mothers and parents who are looking for activities for their children. Many people take pride in their yards and work to maintain a specific look and appearance. Ms. Kennedy’s business is the only one of its kind in the area and has already seen strong customer support.
