It’s Small Business Week! To celebrate, we will be featuring several of our small businesses here in Minto. Check in each to day to see features of our small business owners who will be giving us a behind-the-scenes look into their businesses! Today’s Small Business feature: Gramma Jo’s “We used to own and operate a Restaurant, the Redwood, for 8 years before we sold the business. We missed running the business and the people. We chose Clifford again to open a business because there was an opening for another restaurant in town and everyone in the area were good to us before. We didn’t want to be in a big town with a lot of other restaurants to compete with. We have been back in Clifford now 2 years. We are happy to be back and we appreciate all their business and their friendships and look forward to all the years to come!” - Joanne Weltz, Owner #WhereYourBusinessBelongs

Check in each to day to see features of our small business owners who will be giving us a behind-the-scenes look into their businesses! Today's Small Business feature: McDonald Chiropractic “Nearing the end of my educational career, I knew that I wanted to open my own clinic but where was the question. Since both my wife and I are from Minto, and most of our family resides in the area, we wanted to be close to home, but again not sure where. After some research of the surrounding areas and no other chiropractor or dietitian located in Harriston, it was an easy decision to start our business in town. What made the decision even easier was the support from the municipality and the town office. Working for myself was big part of the reason why I wanted to open my own business. Having worked for several other chiropractors and healthcare professionals that own their businesses really shed some light on what it was like. Obviously, there are going to be challenges, but the joy that was displayed in their day to day actions and how they carried themselves and spoke about their business is what really gave me the inspiration. Finally, my support system, my wife, family and close friends have been supportive since day one and I could not have done it without them. If I could give any advice to a fellow entrepreneur about opening a business, especially in Minto, is to make sure you have a sound business plan and to know your market. Doing research may be a daunting task, but it will pay dividends in the end. After you have those mastered, simply go for it. Minto has so many opportunities, grants and support for small businesses, we truly are lucky to have such great people working for our community." - Dr. Shawn McDonald, Owner #WhereYourBusinessBelongs #MintoPhoto

Today's Small Business feature: Palmerston Foodland - It also happens to be #NationalFoodDay! . “Heather & I love being part of a small community as most people are friendly & helpful. Five years ago we saw an opportunity to transform the Palmerston grocery store & offer the people of Palmerston & area a better shopping experience. I really like seeing the community coming into our store & visiting with each other. We hoped we could create more than just a grocery store rather a store where customers can shop relaxed & chat with each other. It's rewarding to see & hear customers in our store doing just that. Truly thats what we love about our business. I had a customer come up to me a few months ago & say I've been in here 45 minutes and not bought a thing just talking (I thought to myself perfect), she then proceeded to buy a few things & said can't chat now as I'm late. Long hours & lots of hard work but when you hear customers like that its awesome being a small business. As we continue to try & improve our offering & grow, we see the town grow also, what a great feeling." - Ron & Heather McTaggert, Palmerston Foodland Owners #WhereYourBusinessBelongs #MintoPhoto
