CDA's 'Mountain Madness' honored
WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Jim Risch on Wednesday announced the selection of six local businesses to be honored as Idaho Small Businesses of the Month for May 2021.
Among them was Mountain Madness Soap in Coeur d'Alene, a specialty handmade soap and bath products company that began as a hobby and has since blossomed into a local success.
Owners Jennifer and Andy Morsell kept Mountain Madness open throughout the pandemic by implementing health and safety measures to protect employees and customers, and have supported the Coeur d’Alene business community by buying materials from locally owned businesses
Other businesses cited by Risch include TLC for Tots in Nampa; Abracadabra's in Twin Falls; Sandpiper Restaurant in Pocatello; Great Harvest in Idaho Falls; and Happy Day Restaurants in Lewiston.
“Each of these small businesses has adapted to the challenges caused by COVID-19,” said Risch. “Their ingenuity and commitment to providing relief to the community during these challenging times is nothing short of admirable.”
The decision to highlight a small business from each of Idaho’s six geographic regions comes in conjunction with the "Support Local Gems" initiative, set to take place on Friday.
