Opportunities for business owners
Building Better Businesses Monthly Business Classes
Every 2nd Thursday of the month (except December), Rawlins DDA/Main Street hosts a business training class from 6-7:30p at RTEC. Topics include marketing, taxes, basics of starting a business, and more! Watch our website and our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/rawlinsmainstreet) for specific topics each month.
Open Flag Program
Join the pride in our community by purchasing a new Open flag in the community colors for your business. These will soon be available to all Rawlins businesses. The flag is being made by American Flag and Gift, and are made in America. Flags are $30 each.
The Rawlins DDA/Main Street’s Paint Program is designed to help beautify our community by assisting Rawlins business property owners with the expense of painting the outside of their commercial buildings. We will reimburse 40% of the cost of paint only, up to $500, for businesses outside the downtown district or for downtown buildings which do not use the downtown color pallette. If a downtown business or property owner uses a color from the “Downtown Color Palette,” the Rawlins DDA/Main Street program will pay 70% of the cost of the paint. All color schemes must go through a simple approval process first, and paint must be purchased in Rawlins. Please call for more details.
The Rawlins Main Street Young Professionals (MSYP) is a social networking organization whose goal is to help people in their 20s and 30s meet others, especially when first moving to town, and show them all that Rawlins has to offer. We believe this will help with employee retention and satisfaction. Every month we have a Meet N’ Greet on the third Tuesday of the month, currently at Michael’s Big City Grill. On even numbered months (February, April, June, etc.) it is at 6:30p. On odd numbered months, it is at noon. We produce a monthly newsletter in conjunction with the Meet N’ Greets that includes events around the community for the month. We also host fun events, such as game nights and camping trips, throughout the year.
