Grand Enterprise Initiative Update

by Heath Dewey on October 31st, 2013

The Grand Enterprise Initiative is Kapoks's first program and what a success it has been! The program is located in Grand County, Colorado and serves the nearly 15,000 people that live in the county that sits amidst the Great Divide in the Colorado Rockies. The Grand Enterprise Initiative provides business coaching and networking support to anyone in Grand County that wants to start a business or already owns a business.

Check out the stats below to see what the Grand Enterprise Initative has accomplished since it began work in 2012.

“This is a great place to bring your family,” says Kendra Wilkinson, owner and cake decorator for the establishment. “Come get a meal, visit with your friends and enjoy the fun atmosphere. You can even order a cake for an upcoming event. We have soft serve and scoop ice cream, shakes, malts, banana splits, fries, hamburgers, nachos, and hot dogs,” says Kendra. Rounding out the offerings at the conveniently located establishment is a variety of snack foods, drinks and a soda fountain. Our goal has been to create a wholesome, open and friendly
environment where families and kids can hang out and enjoy something to eat while socializing", says Wilkinson. Hours will be Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Wilkinson says they plan to stay open later on West Grand home game nights and for other special evening events.
