Business Briefs: Silverthorne Hampton Inn opens its doors
January 12, 2016
NEW HOTEL IN TOWN
The new Hampton Inn and Suites in Silverthorne will host its grand opening on Wednesday. The 88-room hotel officially opened last month, just before the holidays, under Denver-based hotel operating and development company Silverwest Hotels, LLC.
"The hotel has already been off to an amazing start for the 2015-16 winter season with sold out dates and weekends." Silverwest Hotels communications manager Dana Parks said in a statement.
The hotel, located just off Highway 6 and Interstate 70 has quick access to Keystone Resort, Arapahoe Basin Ski Area and Copper Mountain Resort. It is Silverwest's second location to open near a Colorado ski resort and the first nationally-branded hotel to open in the Silverthorne-Dillon area in the last decade.
LUCK OF THE DRAW
A Frisco winner was announced on Saturday after purchasing a winning Powerball ticket at the Valero Corner Store in Frisco. The $50,000 prize was one of six winning tickets announced in the state that weekend.
With the current estimated jackpot at $1.4 billion, people are still purchasing numbers, with hopes of getting the "golden ticket."
"Even now, people keep on buying," said Issa Tandia, a Valero employee.
MINGLE WITH THE SUMMIT COUNTY CHAMBER
Elevate CoSpace in Frisco will host the annual Summit County Chamber Mixer on Thursday, Jan. 21 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The event provides an opportunity for new businesses to share with the well-established entities.
"Typically, just local businesses come, and it's a networking event," Elevate co-founder Amy Kemp said. "It's a great opportunity just to integrate with the business community in particular."
This year's event will be hosted with Colorado Mountain Express. Elevate CoSpace is located at 711 Granite Street, Frisco CO, 80443
HL Enterprises (Handyman and Lady) recently opened its doors in Frisco. The husband-and-wife duo moved to Summit County to open a construction and maintenance service, offering carpentry, decks, painting, flooring and other services, most recently helping the Next Page Bookstore with renovations.
"We did a big project on there and will be expanding their entire store once it gets warmer," co-founder Erin Brock said.
Originally from upstate New York, the two moved out to Colorado to start a new business after owning a contracting business for seven years. They are licensed and fully insured through Arrow Insurance.
"It's where we knew we wanted to live and settle down," Brock said of their move to the mountains. "We drove back to New York in October, got all of our tools and said, 'Let's do it.'"
