Local Cheddar is Payson’s Business of the Month
Local Cheddar celebrated business of the month of October in Payson with a cheesy party. They welcomed chamber members and local residents to celebrate the honor with a spread of cheese and crackers, cheesecake, cheese dip, and even a cake decorated as a big chunk of cheese with a frosting mouse.
Kathy Anderson, owner of Local Cheddar, focuses her business on promoting local businesses and events. “It’s important that we keep our money in the community. Each dollar that we spend at a local business instead of a big box store, over double will stay in our community.”
Kathy spoke of her plans of the next year including Small Business Saturday Turkey Bowl, Redneck Games and Tailgate Party, Chalk Art Festival and more. These local events are meant to bring the community out to see the great local businesses that we have right here in town. There is no better way to see the diverse businesses we have then to get them all together and host some fun family events for our town.
The first big event coming up is on Small Business Saturday which is November 29th. In 2010, American Express founded Small Business Saturday to help businesses with their most pressing need — getting more customers. The day encourages people to shop at small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
Local Cheddar has become an American Express neighborhood champion this year. They are hosting a turkey bowl where you can bowl with frozen turkeys down a custom made bowling lane featuring the sponsoring local small businesses. With the help and support of over 30 local businesses, Local Cheddar has turned this into what will be a giant success for local business owners. Sponsoring businesses have been very generous too. There will be a strikers raffle for those that get a strike while bowling with a frozen turkey. The local businesses have donated a lot of prizes for the event. Leslie’s Family Tree is donating gift cards, Gunnerson Dental is donating a prize basket full of goodies, Oil N Go is donating 2 free oil changes, Precision Vision is donating a free eye exam, Trapnell Orthodontics is donating a goodie basket full of swag worth over $150, Body and Soul Tattoo is donating 2 $25 gift cards, Casa Veija is donating multiple gift cards and many more.
Join Local Cheddar on Saturday, November 29th from 10:00-2:00 in Payson at 875 East 100 North. There will be hot fresh scones from Family Tree, local business booths, prizes and, of course, bowling with a frozen turkey. The first 100 bowlers will get a free goodie bag full of swag and local deals. Bowling will be $1 per turkey toss. Classic Beauty & Barber will have a limited number of free turkey tossing tickets available at her 2nd anniversary party on November 15th. Come on out for Small Business Saturday and join with us to support shopping local in our community.
Congratulations Local Cheddar for being Payson Chamber Business of the Month!
