Popular summer stop La Michoacana Ice Cream Parlor was recognized at this week’s Fort Morgan City Council meeting as the recipient of the new Business of the Month award for June.
The new award program is a cooperative effort of the City of Fort Morgan, the Fort Morgan Area Chamber of Commerce and the Fort Morgan Times. It is intended to spotlight a local business each month to highlight the importance of small businesses to the local economy and encourage residents to patronize them.
Sarah Crosthwaite, the city’s economic development specialist, said La Michoacana is a family-owned and operated business that is reflective of our diverse community and the type that is celebrated in Fort Morgan. The shop recently observed its third anniversary, she said.
Owners Blanca Mosqueda and Gloria Mosqueda received a framed award certificate and a “sandwich board” sign to be placed outside their business designating it as this month’s business of the month.
Any business in Fort Morgan can enter the monthly drawings for a chance to be chosen as the Business of the Month. Simply visit the Chamber office at 300 Main St. to enter. Current Chamber members will be automatically entered each month.
The Flower Petaler is located at 322 Main St. and specializes in floral, gifts, antiques and collectibles. The store can be reached at (970) 867-0955.
