A music company, brewery and a Vietnamese restaurant are among several new businesses that have opened in Northglenn.
Debbie Tuttle, the city’s economic development manager, gave city council an economic development update at its June 10 regular meeting.
She highlighted the recent ribbon cuttings and the new business licenses issued by the city — including one for Colorado Sun Tofu at 10651 Irma Drive, Unit A.
“It’s the only tofu manufacturer and distributor in Colorado right here in Northglenn,” Tuttle said.
The other licenses issued include:
• America’s Best Contacts and Eye Glasses, 421 W. 104th Ave. in the Marketplace;
• High Class Auto Glass Inc., 10750 Irma Drive, Unit 4; Nuthouse Studio, 558 Malley Drive (provides recording, mixing and mastering services);
• Apple Liquors at the Huron Center, 104th Avenue and Huron Street.
Beer by Design, 2100 E. 112th Ave., had a soft opening June 1 and will have a grand opening June 28.
Other ribbon cuttings include:
• Demi’s Treasures & Thrift Store, 1454 W. 104th Ave.;
• Old Wagon Antique Mall, 10685 Melody Drive — this mall has more than 111 vendors that sells various new, pre-owned and collector items;
• Saigon Basil is a family-operated Vietnamese restaurant at 10665 Melody;
• The family-owned Sugar Bean Bakery opened up at 2145 E. 120th Ave., Unit. 1A.
Tuttle also highlighted a new four-week, hands-on workshop the city is offering to the first five businesses to register for website training.
“Northglenn is a very much entrepreneurial city and has a lot of startups,” she said. “One of the things we discovered is that a lot of our startups don’t have the ability to do their own websites, and as we know, having a website presence is extremely important.”
She added that the city may offer more classes in the future, even for home-based businesses, depending on the success of the first workshop.
