Jessica and Ryan met while students at Minot High School. After briefly chasing the dream in Fargo, ND, and Denver, CO, they realized the best opportunity was actually in Minot and they relocated home in 2004.

Together with their children, Jessica and Ryan joined the budding excitement in downtown Minot in 2017 and formed Aksal Group with a mission to provide space to support entrepreneurs and organizations looking to the future.

Their belief that a local emphasis creates a more sustainable community led them to 1st and Central at the heart of downtown Minot. After years of hard work in the trenches of renovation, they’ve created spaces for several new businesses that now call this hip block home.

Their renovations have breathed new life into downtown Minot, capturing the unique history of this special place. There’s something to do on this block all day — from coffee to cocktails, as Jessica likes to say.

Jessica and Ryan care deeply about supporting small businesses and promoting family time with an emphasis on being outdoors. These core beliefs guide their continued investments in downtown Minot.

Jessica and Ryan are champions for the city they love, and they continue to dream big about the next opportunities they can bring to this block, the downtown area, residents, and annual visitors to meet the needs of the community. They’re focused on doing what’s in the best interest of the community they love.
