Hometown Floral owners Nicole Anderson and Cheryl Long visit with Diana Enzi and Sen. Mike Enzi on April 16. The Enzis visited local businesses across the state as part of a Wyoming Works tour. The Kemmerer business opened downtown in July 2018. Sen. Enzi said he enjoyed meeting owners of several of Wyoming’s small businesses.
As part of his Wyoming Works tour, U.S. Senator Mike Enzi (R-Wyo.) and wife Diana spent the last two weeks visiting small businesses in the southwestern and central portions of the state.
“Businesses often look pretty simple from the outside, but I’ve found it is important to get an inside look to better understand the decisions business owners have to make about hiring, inventory, accounting and everything in between,” Enzi said. “As a former small business owner, I always enjoy meeting the hard-working folks in our communities that run successful businesses.”
During the April state work period, Enzi visited businesses and attended organizational meetings around the state, including Kemmerer’s Hometown Floral, PC Industries and Star Valley Sodas in Star Valley, Sugar Bear’s Bakery in Evanston, Sidekicks Book and Wine Bar in Rock Springs, Windswept Goods in Rawlins, Frog Creek Partners in Casper, Ugly Bug Fly Shop in Casper, and Shatto’s Frontier Drug in Douglas.
“We are left humbled and speechless after having Senator Mike Enzi, Diana Enzi, Nikki Brunner, and Rachel Vliem visit our business this morning,” Hometown Floral posted to their Facebook page after Sen. Enzi’s visit. “We are forever grateful to have the honor of meeting these incredible individuals and to have them recognize the work and love we have poured into our business. This kind of recognition is something we only dreamed of when we opened our doors last July.”
