In an effort to reach out to new and/or “hidden” businesses in the community the Forks Chamber of Commerce is hosting a Business Showcase once a month where businesses can get the word out about what they are doing or planning to do.
The first showcase was held last Wednesday at the weekly chamber meeting at Blakeslee’s.
The guests were Julie Dannemiller, Keith Coley and Cynthia Sterns.
Dannemiller will soon be opening a mobile food trailer at the intersection of Calawah Way and mainstreet. She plans on serving healthy food choices for students and the general public and may venture into some onsite catering in the future.
She will feature a daily affordable special that will be prepared in her custom made commercial kitchen trailer. Julie is a Forks native.
Keith Coley has only been in Forks less than a year, having moved from Nashville where the heat and the growing population inspired him and his partner to find a cool rainy place to run their business. Angel-Geschichte Corporation offers retreats, Chinese medicine, and alternative ideas to help people be healthier in mind and body. Keith has set up an office at the ICN building on Spartan Ave., because he does live internet classes and the internet speed was better there than at his home. He plans to offer a product line that will possibly employ a few people.
Cindy Stearns is from Ocean Shores and she runs Oceanshores.com offering a hub for businesses to be listed all in one place. With an extensive background in the travel industry Cindy hopes to connect businesses from Ocean Shores to Neah Bay and help tourists find what they are looking for and fun things to do along the way.
The next business Showcase will be Wednesday, May 8, featuring Jake Morrison of Luxe Hiking Gear, and Amanda McCracken of Pet Sitting and Boarding by Amanda/Rover.com
