A kickoff was hosted at the Emery County Administration Building in Castle Dale on Wednesday for the new Cottage to Commercial program.

The Cottage to Commercial program was created with a very specific goal in mind: to assist and accelerate both new and existing businesses in Emery County.

Ethan Migliori with USU Eastern presented during this kickoff luncheon and spoke about the mentoring, counseling and training that will be provided for those that wish to grow or start their businesses.

Currently, the Cottage to Commercial trainings are anticipated to begin on Feb. 27. These will begin with two trainings, one at 12 p.m. and one at 6 p.m. The topic of discussion for the initial trainings will be “Myths of Expansion.”

These trainings are slated to also take place in the county building, which is located at 75 East Main Street in Castle Dale.
