Superstition Meadery receives prestigious award

The owners of Superstition Meadery, Prescott’s sole Meadery, recently received their highest honor to date as business owners.

Along with 12 other Arizona businesses (out of about 500,000 small businesses in the state) Superstition Meadery received the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) 2017 Success Award.

The SBDC is a national government organization that offers counseling, opens doors, and works to help small businesses succeed.

“The connections that our local Yavapai SBDC director Kurt Haskell and business analyst Al Carlow made for Superstition Meadery were directly related to us being able to construct our new Production Facility,” co-owner Jeff Herbert said.

The 2017 Success Award is based on many factors such as job creation, revenue growth, obtaining financing, exports and more.

Soul Ride moved

Soul Ride, a mountain biking repair shop and tour company, is now fully settled into its new location at 230 S. Montezuma St. in Prescott.

The owners moved the business in late February after being at their previous location, 409 W. Goodwin St, for almost two years. The business is also now open six days a week, Monday through Friday 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Building construction along Miller Valley Road

The shell of a brand new 900-square-foot building is nearly complete along Miller Valley Road right next to Filiberto’s Mexican Food, 576 Miller Valley Road.

Tom Guice, director of Community Development for the City of Prescott, said the city was told it may eventually be used to house a yogurt shop (or something along those lines).

Contractors working on the site said the property owner does not seem to have a clear sense of what he will be doing with the building.
