Our 4th Friday Breakfast Is This Friday!

Do you want to hear an inspiring story of a Flint business owner motivated to be part of the solution in Flint?  Join Flint Club this Friday, June 24th, from 7:30-9am at Hoffman’s Deco Deli for our 4th Friday Breakfast.  Our special guest will be Amy Miles, Chief Logistics Officer for Commerce Connect, LLC.  Amy will lead our discussion about small business by sharing Commerce Connect’s experiences in such areas as setting up headquarters in downtown, employing local talent and college students, and partnering with other area businesses.
We are delighted to have Amy join us for our conversation and we hope to see you too!  4th Fridays are always free and open to the public.

Amy is committed to finding ways to support her home town.  In 2010 she and her partners founded Commerce Connect, LLC.  The purpose of this firm was to utilize Amy’s expertise in distribution but to a new customer, the government.  Commerce Connect, LLC is a woman owned business who is applying for hub zone status which means that it is required to employ Flint residents that live in the hub zone.

In 2010 Amy and her partners purchased majority interest in Rawway.  This company manufacturers organic, raw, health bars. The first facility Rawway used to produce these bars was the Kitchen of Blackstones.  In the fall of 2010 production was moved to the Kitchen Riverside Residence.  Rawway employs local residents and college students.

On Friday, Amy will share her experiences working and owning a business in Flint.  All are welcome to attend.
