Park County Businesses Make Global Economic Connections
Written by wendycorr on August 9, 2019
A handful of businesses in Park County are working to bring their goods to a global market.
The Wyoming Business Council has offered small businesses across the state the opportunity to make connections with the country of Taiwan to export goods from the wild west to a market eager for American products.
Amy Quick is the northwest regional director for the Wyoming Business Council. She says in a state that is trying to expand its economic base, the opportunities are exciting.
Businesses that have already begun exports to Southeast Asia include Murraymere Farms in Powell, which has just sent its seventh shipment of Wyoming beef to a restaurant in Taiwan. GF Harvest in Powell has also made connections, and Jesse Renfors, owner and operator of Cody Coffee Roasters, says he is beginning the process.
Renfors credits the Wyoming Business Council with providing the opportunity to further expand his already rapidly growing business, pointing out that they have the connections and the resources to help businesses like his reach a much larger market.
