Cedaredge is one of my favorite places in Colorado. What isn’t there to love about this town? The people are friendly and the views are breath taking. I fell in love with this town the first time I visited it.
Cedaredge has a kind of awesomeness that manages to stay humble which you can only find in a small town. I love the agriculture community and all of the beef, apples, peaches and wine it produces. I love how connected the town remains to its history as the Pioneer Town exemplifies. I love seeing how art is celebrated and the talented artists showcased at the Grand Mesa Arts Center.
More than meets the eye
My own gushing about the town aside, Cedaredge holds a lot of untapped potential for economic growth in my opinion. As mentioned, the town has a lot of awesome going on. There’s a low barrier to entry for entrepreneurs here and established businesses are fairly stable. The only thing limiting this small town is the fact it’s a small town. Products need to find buyers abroad and services need travelers. Reaching beyond the local market is critical to expansion given how limited the local market is.
This is where marketing comes in. Local businesses already see the value of this with events like Applefest. How many businesses from out of the area come here for that weekend? How many visitors come to town for that weekend?
Just that one weekend makes the year for some businesses. Some businesses only exist for that one weekend of the year. As great as that weekend can be, you don’t have to hang your hat on one weekend a year to sell your products and services beyond your local community. Selling to the broader market is important for any business to thrive, especially for small businesses.
