Larimer SBDC Announces Cheers for Peers Campaign Winners

The Larimer Small Business Development Center, a partner program of the Small Business Administration, is proud to announce its winners of the second annual Cheers for Peers campaign to celebrate Larimer County’s favorite small businesses!

Larimer SBDC’s Cheers for Peers campaign was created to thank and celebrate small business owners in Larimer County communities whose business was voted as community members’ favorites.

“Small business owners work around the clock and sometimes can’t see how their efforts are making a difference. As part of Small Business Week activities, this is one way we can show them how they are appreciated by community members. Everyday citizens nominate any business across Larimer County they’d like to include and the one with the most votes wins – it’s as simple as that. Hopefully, people give shout outs to their favorite local businesses throughout the year, however, we’re delighted to have this one week to amplify the accolades.

Voting ran from March 13th through April 14th and 252 responses were received. Winners from Fort Collins, Loveland, Timnath, Wellington, Berthoud, and Estes Park will be presented certificates and a gift basket of local goods at the SBDC’s Appreciation Event on May 5th at Front Range Community College.

This year’s winners are:

The Fox Den & Linden Street Tattoo Company – Fort Collins

Inside and Out Pet Care & 18 Spa – Loveland

The Little Gym – Timnath

Thistle – Wellington

The Ranchers Wife – Berthoud

Mountain Home Café – Estes Park

Thank you to the Town of Timnath, Town of Wellington & Wellington Main Street, Inc., Town of Berthoud, and Front Range Community College for various items donated to winner gift baskets.
