How You Can Support Local Kosciusko County Businesses

Thursday, January 14, 2021

Clearly Kosciusko is a county-wide voice for businesses and residents to rally around and contribute to. Our mission is to help connect local businesses to each other and to the community around us. By organizing our community to support one another, we believe everyone is able to flourish.

Supporting local business can look different for everyone. For visitors and residents, it can include eating at locally-owned restaurants and supporting local artisans.

Supporting our community also looks like participating in events like Fat & Skinny Tire Fest, The Village Art Fair, the Lakes Festival, The Mermaid Festival, and more.

But ensuring our local businesses are supported and thriving doesn’t end there. Collaboration is at the heart of what can help local businesses thrive! Members of Clearly Kosciusko regularly connect with each other and visibly show support of our county while also helping their businesses grow.

Local Business Collaboration

In order to keep connecting with one another and their customers, businesses were increasingly innovative last year. And their creativity will continue in 2021.

From launching new podcasts highlighting the stories of small business owners to giving away free lunches to Sidewalk Sale participants, collaboration has been at the heart of how we support each other!
