What we would do with $20K

chase-main-street-grants1Chase is boldly giving away $3 million in grants to lucky business owners under Chase Mission Main Street Grants.

The grants will vary from $20,ooo to $150,000, and all that is needed is to get 250 votes by Oct. 17 to qualify for the next round. Folks can vote for as many businesses as they like, but if you are reading this, we hope you will take the time to vote for us as well. Just two clicks from here to cast a vote for Frog on a Limb.

So what would be do with even $20,ooo. We’ve actually been thinking about that for a long time, but business has just been too slow to achieve our short term goals. If you are familiar with our shop, you will know that although our store front has great potential in the cozy corner of Front and Third Streets in Historic Monument, it needs work. We want to extend the roof out over the facade and add a half-timber look to give it a more cottage feel. We’ll  replace and paint the worn trim and maybe extend the main window for a more showcase look. Additionally, we want to raise and extend the patio area out front, keeping the trees in place, so we can welcome more entertainment on our “front porch” and allow a comfortable atmosphere for guests to listen to good mountain music.

Eventually, we would even like to add an industrial kitchen so Jessica can make more of here hard candies and legendary apple butter, but that is a few more years down the line… or maybe a bigger grant. Who knows.

Please keep in mind what Chase is doing, helping small business. You can do it too and you don’t need to give away $3 million. Just shop locally… and vote!

Ribbit!
