PROTECTING SMALL BUSINESS, PROMOTING ENTREPRENEURSHIP

SBE Council member Adam Rammel, founder of Brewfontaine and The Syndicate, was featured in a CNBC TV interview and print story about a top concern of small business owners – finding and retaining the workers they need to operate and grow. As noted in the story:

Adam Rammel is gearing up for an expansion. The co-owner of Brewfontaine, a craft beer bar in Bellefontaine, Ohio is opening up an events and catering business in a few months’ time, requiring the company to nearly double its current staff of 25 workers—a tall order in a historically tight labor market.

“We are in manufacturing country and manufacturers are expanding their wages to attract workers in our area—it continues to be a challenge as we try to retain and recruit new talent, especially for our catering arm,” Rammel says. “The economy has been very hot lately and that means there are opportunities elsewhere.”
