Waconia is a great place to run a business

To the editor:

The Waconia Chamber’s mission is "to promote a positive business environment to enhance the quality of life in the community."

I felt the need to write because I want entrepreneurs to know that Waconia does have a positive business environment. There are many success stories and testimonies that demonstrate that. If you are a current business owner, or someone thinking about starting a business here, please know that the Waconia Chamber and the City of Waconia have established a track record of supporting business when at all possible.

The Revolving Loan that is available through the City of Waconia is available to qualified applicants from existing and new businesses for land acquisition, construction, remodeling, machinery, equipment, upgrades, code compliance and more. The Chamber of Commerce is a business membership organization, a non-governmental entity, and we pride ourselves on helping businesses succeed.

We also strongly support shopping local. Your dollars matter to our businesses that are paying the lion’s share of the taxes that keep Waconia strong. Please notice who is sponsoring the next event you are enjoying and shop there.

I’m excited about the new businesses that are coming to Waconia and hope that you will check them out and encourage other entrepreneurs to find out more.
