Open Door Policy

The Open Door Policy of Plumas County

If you have a successful business, you know that your success is tied to your promotion of that business. Those promotions sometimes take the form of a campaign. It might be as simple as a clothing store advertising a “Winter Coverup” or a lumber business featuring a “Build on Experience” promotion. Local ad media may even develop a campaign that brings community business together for a campaign slogan that encompasses many businesses, like a “Shop Local” campaign.

The Feather River Country website might be new, but Feather River Country – Plumas County – is not. And we have a problem. (more…)

Express Coffee Shop

Express Coffee Shop in Quincy

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner Casual Style

Express Coffee ShopJust looking at me, most people would agree, I like to eat. Perhaps too much. But for me, it’s more than just about the food. It’s a social thing. I like to chat up the servers and enjoy conversations with those few owners I know. Lucio is one of those. He’s friendly, seems to care about my every-day life and welcomes me to his little restaurant whenever I come by. He’s like that to everyone, he’s got that “open door” spirit. But when it happens to you, it just feels special.

Express Coffee Shop has great coffees, but it’s a full-service (more…)

Internet Presence

What Do You Know About Having An Internet Presence?

For the last few months there has been discussion about a website to market tourism for Plumas County. The county budget for this endeavor was cut to the quick and the funding for an existing website was turned off. I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who was a bit confused about all this, but maybe my confusion was a bit different than yours (assuming you are a resident of Plumas County and even know what I’m talking about).

Apparently, at one time, there was a tourism marketing budget of nearly a quarter of a million (more…)

The title above is, at this point, wishful thinking. Tourism is down, which has created a financial debacle for the county, which has resulted in reduced marketing for new and increased tourism.

I am calling on all of Plumas County’s businesses to step up (more…)
