Small businesses are the backbone of a local economy and in Edgewater our small businesses enhance our small town flavor. Launching and sustaining a small business can be hard these days, so Edgewater business owners are working together to help the local economy thrive.
Edgewater City Council member, Kristian Teegarden, started the Edgewater Business Group to strengthen and connect businesses in Edgewater. The group has been meeting for the last few months and is gaining momentum.
This month, Teegarden handed leadership of the group to Grant Babb of Joyride Brewing Company. Joyride will start brewing operations in Edgewater at the corner of 25th and Sheridan in spring 2014.
The Edgewater Business Group meets on a monthly basis to connect and strategize. They are also working on plans for a community event to coincide with the Edgewater 5k on May 3, 2014. This event will showcase Edgewater businesses, schools and local resources while raising money for local nonprofit Edgewater Collective.
