Notice to businesses: Advice wanted

Economic Development Alliance plumbs wants, fears of SW Colorado
The La Plata Economic Development Alliance is taking a pulse of the county’s business climate and wants to hear from local business owners. Desert Sun Coffee Roasters was among the companies the Alliance surveyed this summer. Glenn Lathrop, the company’s owner, inspected unroasted coffee beans at the company’s headquarters Monday in Bodo Industrial Park. The Alliance plans to survey 50 to 60 additional businesses in 2013.
Nick March, with Desert Sun Coffee Roasters, bags freshly roasted coffee beans. Desert Sun Coffee’s effort to help its employees move upward in the company could serve as a model for other companies, said Roger Zalneraitis, executive director of the La Plata Economic Development Alliance.
Zach Ray, with Desert Sun Coffee, checks the progress of roasting coffee beans at company headquarters in Bodo Industrial Park. One idea La Plata Economic Development Alliance heard from small food-industry firms: Create a shared commercial kitchen for development of products so no one small firm will have to pay the costs of a commercial-scale kitchen.
