Chamber to celebrate business of the year

Hard to believe that we’re almost halfway through 2021.



June 11, 2021 - 9:30 AM

Hard to believe that we’re almost halfway through 2021. 

This year has brought unique challenges to businesses and communities as we’ve encountered supply shortages, policy changes and a difficult hiring market. However, many opportunities for growth and success have also presented themselves, and our Chamber has found it encouraging to see so many of our members and other community members thrive.

We’re excited to celebrate one of this year’s greatest successes at 10 a.m. on June 24. The Feedlot will receive the award for 2021 Existing Business of the Year from the Kansas Small Business Development Center. The Kinzle family, proprietors of The Feedlot, invite the community to join them at 110 N Kentucky Street to help them celebrate their business’s achievement. Join us in making them feel appreciated for all their hard work and contributions to our community.

Our Chamber is also getting excited to provide an updated 2021 Allen County Community Guide. The Allen County Community Guide highlights our Chamber members, local businesses and attractions. This year, the guide focuses specifically on select Chamber member success stories in order to spotlight how our members provide exceptional value to our community, visitors passing through and those searching for a new home. The guide illustrates how Allen County is a wonderful place to eat, shop, stay and play, and we’re excited to get it into your hands soon. We anticipate receiving the new copies in July or early August. Stay tuned for their release.
