COVINGTON, KY - Beginning on Friday, September 11th City of Covington officials and representatives of the business community will cut a ribbon on a new business every Friday afternoon.
“The air is electric. Something wonderful is happening in Covington. It is almost impossible to keep up with the pace of new businesses choosing to locate in all corners of the City.” said Geoff Milz, Economic Development Manager for the City of Covington. “From a multimillion dollar expansion of an industrial business in South Covington, to the new State building in Latonia, to the many new restaurants and retailers in Downtown and Mainstrasse, it’s easy to see that the time to invest in Covington is now.”
Mayor Sherry Carran is excited about the trend in new business development, “What is so impressive about the new business boom we are seeing right now is the diversity of businesses that are choosing to call Covington home.”
Katie Meyer, Executive Director of Renaissance Covington, which is involved in downtown revitalization, added, “As our name indicates, Renaissance Covington is working hard with our City and business partners to make our downtown a vibrant and unique place to be. I’m so happy that the new businesses we are celebrating with these weekly ribbon cuttings are a part of the renaissance of Covington.”
