According to Chad, 27 Red is a dream come true for he and his wife. "If anyone doubts that dreams come true, they should just stop by because this truly is my wife's dream made true. She's an amazing hair dresser who now has her very talented friends around her doing nails, hair and make-up. Business is wonderful and it's just a dream come true," he said.
