Shelley Irwin rocks…and once a month, she lets me rock with her on the WGVU Morning Show with Shelley Irwin on 88.5 FM on a segment we coined Your Biz, Your Town. On the 4th Friday of every month we invite 3 guests into the studio to chat about their community organization, exciting business news or a local event.
Our guests today….drum roll please….
Sweet Yo’s – Premium Frozen Yogurt
Sweet Yo’s was formed by a brother and sister team that are taking the local business world by storm. Rosa and Mario Piccione already run successful businesses (Ucello’s and Rosa’s Closet) in the west Michigan community, however they realized a niche was not being filled in East Grand Rapids.
Through their travels they noticed the growing trend of self-serve frozen yogurt shops on the east and west coast, and it dawned on them what a great business concept it would be for our community.
We encourage you to check out this locally owned and family run business – Sweet Yo’s – Treat Yourself.
Grand Cycling Classic
On July 28, the Herman Miller Grand Cycling Classic will host the 2012 USA Cycling Professional Men’s Criterium National Championship. See America’s top pro riders compete for the gold in an 80 km race along a 1.2 km course in downtown Grand Rapids. Historic brick-paved streets, tight turns and speeds of up to 40 mph in a 90-minute adrenaline rush for cyclists and spectators alike.
Volunteers are still needed. Support this great event in our community!
GiveCamp is a weekend-long event where technology professionals – from designers, developers and database administrators to marketers and web strategists – donate their time to provide solutions for non-profit organizations. Some organizations may need a new website or a renewal of an old one. For others, GiveCamp helps them make the leap from Excel spreadsheets to true donor databases. And for still others, this is an opportunity to think strategically, with the help of a consultant, about their social media presence or e-mail marketing. This is about matching the needs of non-profits with the talent of our local technology-loving community. Any 501(3) can apply to participate in GiveCamp. Accepted non-profits will be matched with a project liaison prior to GiveCamp who will help them shape their project and answer any critical questions to ensure the weekend is a success.
As always, thanks to all of our amazing guests. If you are interested in being featured on the monthly WGVU segment, Your Biz, Your Town – just send us an email.
