CCCofC Ambassadors –
Each week (post pandemic in Utah) more businesses reopen, add hours, open their dining rooms, and reinstate or create events.
As a member of the Cedar City Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors, we are asked to help businesses with a ribbon cutting. Sporting Red Ribbons with giant bows (and over-sized scissors) we line up for phot0s, meet owners and managers, and help raise the spirits of those that have spent a year or more planning, developing and opening their dream.
It’s an honor to be there – to see the excitement in their eyes, as they have built their dream and now wait for customers to come. In April and May, Ambassadors helped the following business owners and agencies start/restart their journey.
Quick Quack Car Wash –
Located behind the Children’s Dental Facility in Providence Center, this West Coast Chain has a number of stores in Northern Utah, but this is the first in southern Utah. It should be open sometime in September and is 100% recycled water. You can visit their website for more information, or visit the store when it opens at the corner of Quack and Jack.
Our newest U.S. citizens and immigrants have purchased one of Iron Countys favorite stores. They have plans to expand and are interested in participating in events as vendors. Contact them if you are looking for food vendors this summer. You'll find them on Facebook.
Float My Boat Rentals –
Located on Mid-Valley Road in Enoch, treat yourself to a fabulous week or weekend on Lake Powell using this lovely Boat. You can visit their Facebook page here.
Empanada Bus –
A year ago the Ambassadors helped the owners of Empanada Bus start their business in a facility in Cedar City where they make and bake Empanadas and sell through the wholesale food market path.
This year they have launched a bus to attend events and sell to the public. You can get more information here at their Facebook page. They offer -

U. S. Forest Service – Dixie National Forest Office
After many years of being tucked off the beaten path in North Cedar City, the Forest Service utilized their own property on Main Street, across from the Museum, and built a facility that will provide services to the public, a small gift shop, and house their 80 full-time employees and 20+ seasonal staff members.
From Quacky Duck to Smokey Bear, it’s been a great spring.
There will be more ribbon cuttings as residents and visitors seek products and services from our business community, and I will continue to help small business owners in Iron County. There are a number of free resources available. Sign up for a free 30-minute consultation and I’ll see what resources fit your needs.
