Laid-back restaurant selling apparel online
No Worry's with its intentional misspelling and unnecessary apostrophe is about lifestyle and attitude, says Yuma businessman Ron Martin. “After all,” he says, “if it was spelled correctly, it wouldn't be cool.”
No Worry's is a bar and grill Martin owns on the Cabo San Lucas Marina in Mexico that features a line of clothing with a surfer flair sporting the No Worry's logo, flaming fish and bright colors.
But fans don't have to go to the Mexican tourist destination anymore to get the clothing. Martin has been joined in the business by Jim Waits after he sold Chretin's restaurant. Waits has taken the clothing store into cyberspace with development of an Internet store at www.noworrysclothing.com to market the brand's T-shirts, shorts, hats and other items. It's also expanded from mostly stuff for the guys to include clothing for women and kids as well.
Meanwhile, Martin has taken on another venture and started Ram Pest Management. The new business provides full-service pest control for pests from termites to pigeons and everything in between.
The business is located at 987 E. 21st St., Suite B, and can be reached at 782-0078. Staff includes two experienced technicians, Bobby Esperanza and Jesse Cockwell.
Martin explained that the company seeks to address the most common complaints about pest control, such as managing the pest “without giving the whole house a chemical bath” that isn't good for the homeowner or the environment. The business also offers green services.
