Stage Coach Grille honored as June Business of the Month

The Stage Coach Grille located at 99 North Main Street in LaVerkin, Utah, has been voted HVCC June 2019 Business of the Month.

Owner Rich Tabish, purchased the Stage Coach Grille in the summer of 2018. The first time to walked in, he fell in love with the concept and woodwork. He said the service was great, the atmosphere comfortable and the food was awesome! The “Restaurant Guy” came alive in him.

As a long-time national restaurant operator for YUM Restaurants (30 plus years), retired, he decided to purchase the restaurant from its founders, George and Cindy Rodinos. “I think of them daily for the care and love they put into this place”.

The Stage Coach Grille serves the highest quality, made from scratch, menu items. Quality is never compromised. Rich is a strong believer in breaking away from the mundane, bean counting, portion control restaurants that have become the American standard. At the Stage Coach Grille, you’ll enjoy old fashioned, slowly cooked, fresh ingredients and you’ll never leave hungry!

The Stage Coach Grille serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and is open 7 days a week from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm. Stop by, congratulate Rich, and try the food. You’ll be glad you did!

HVCC Honors FX Industries as February 2019 Business of the Month.

HVCC Members are invited to submit and vote for Hurricane Valley businesses who they feel provide exceptional customer service, as well as extraordinary products and who are supportive of the community and Hurricane Valley Chamber. A company who does all that and more is
FX Industries, the February 2019 Business of the Month.

After 30 years of providing lighting designers with custom fabricated color filters, Special FX Lighting branched out to add a variety of related custom fabricated products to their offerings; powder coating, metal fabrication, and media blasting. They have rebranded their business as FX Industries with each division able to stand alone or to work in conjunction with the others to manufacture custom metal products.

Their light and custom metal products are manufactured to the highest standards. Their products are created in-house and they are constantly improving their own processes. FX Industries provides manufacturers, distributors, and designers with what is required for award-winning installations; expert quality, affordability, on-time product delivery, and outstanding customer service.

Special FX Lighting was founded in 1984 by the creative vision of Robin DuCrest, along with selected others who assisted with sales (Bill Lewis), coating development (Tia Sarsozo), business advice (Leon Lewis), marketing (Dann Hall), and Beth Lock, who did everything else. Beth has worked in the business after all of these years and currently runs the company today. Their second-generation management includes General Manager Wil DuCrest, who grew up with the company and officially went to full-time employment in 2007, and James Lee, who has been with Special FX for 18 years in various capacities and now holds the title of coatings manager and lead designer. It is with this new vision and leadership that they are proud to continue their specialty manufacturing traditions with FX Industries.

The Hurricane Valley Chamber of Commerce is proud to recognize FX Industries as the February 2019 Business of the Month.  They were honored at the HVCC luncheon meeting on Thursday, February 21st.

Main Street Cafe Honored as Hurricane Valley 2017 Small Business of the Year

Main Street Cafe
Small Business of the Year Award
Sponsored by Davis Farmers Market

When brothers Enrique and Miguel Tinoco were 15 and 17 years old respectively, their plan was to move to California, work two years, save money, and then return to their beloved Mexico. Once back in Mexico they could then get the good education they desired and follow their dreams. In their two working years, the brothers advanced from dishwashers and bus boys up to cooks in great restaurants. They believed their opportunities in the United States were far greater, so they stayed in California restaurants.

Enrique had advanced to managing an Italian restaurant in Long Beach by the time he was 20. The restaurant owner saw the talent in Enrique and sent him to visit and learn from other chefs in notable Italian restaurants. Eleven years cooking and learning from the best Italian chefs in California built Enrique’s confidence. His experience earned him a job offer he almost took as a chef at the Luxor Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. However, a Nevada friend convinced Enrique that a chef with his talent should open and benefit from his own restaurant, so Enrique, Miguel and families left California for an adventure in Las Vegas. Working side by side, they opened Tinoco Bistro in Las Vegas in 1998. For 17 years their business grew, relocating three times for larger spaces to accommodate their growing clientele.

Over the years they found the Las Vegas market was consistently too busy. The brothers yearned to relocate to a calmer atmosphere, where they could work and live and take an occasional day off. In February 2016 they found that place in Hurricane. Main Street Café was the perfect place and again both families relocated to open up their new shop.

Main Street Café is jointly owned by the Tinoco brothers, who also share the cooking responsibilities. Their specialty dishes are pasta and seafood, but their customer favorites are their outside-cooked barbeque grilled burgers.
The Tinoco’s are happy in Hurricane and appreciate the way people of the community have embraced and supported them. Their staff and regular customers (both locals and returning tourists) have become “like family” to them. The Tinoco’s are grateful this venture has turned out so well and are honored to be the Small Business of the Year for 2017.

Stout Home Furnishings Honored as HVCC February 2018 Member of the Month

The Hurricane Valley Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce Stout Home Furnishings as the February 2018 Business Member of the Month.

Selected for their contribution of time, energy and resources to the Hurricane Valley community, Stout Home Furnishings additionally enjoys a stellar reputation as a business who deals honestly and fairly with their customers and stands behind their product. The good people and staff at Stout Home Furnishings provides a comfortable shopping experience with friendly, courteous, customer service. The Hurricane Valley Chamber of Commerce also recognizes Stout Home Furnishings for their continued support and monetary contributions to many community organizations, events and charities. Locally owned and operated, the business has been a positive economic contributor for over 50 years.

In 1963, brothers Dell and Boyd Stout bought the established home center, Petty Mercantile, from Charles Graff and later changed the name to Stout’s. For four generations, the vision has been to give the community a trusted family-operated furniture store that they can count on to make their house a home.

In 1975 the Stout’s trucks got bigger and better, and the brothers made sure they were always able to get the best furniture into the hands of their customers at all costs!

After many years of experience in the furniture and appliance business, Steve Stout, Boyd’s son, took over management of the operation. He kept it successful through maintaining his father’s principles and bringing new ideas to the store. When Steve became very ill, his son Jed took over managing the business. Steve’s health returned, and he remains active in the business as the President and CEO, while Jed continues to manage the day-to-day operations.
The Stout family has proudly furnished thousands of Hurricane, St. George, and surrounding area homes and they continue to believe in building great relations with their customers.

The Hurricane Valley Chamber of Commerce congratulations Stout Home Furnishings on their many years of success and will honor them at the HVCC luncheon meeting, held at the Hurricane Community Center, 63 S. 100 W., on Thursday, Feb. 15th, 2018

The Gift Giver

Another great gift idea!

The Gift Giver

Written by Jacob Haslem & Nicholas Allen

The Gift Giver is a children’s story book about the origins of the man we have come to know as Santa Claus, written and developed by Jacob Haslem and Nicholas Allen. Jacob Haslem came up with the idea during the Christmas season in 2013 while trying to teach his 4-year old son about the true meaning of Christmas.

“I grew up believing in Santa Claus for a long time. I loved the wonder that surrounded a man with such a big heart whose singular purpose, it seemed, was to award children with gifts for being good people. That is a just cause. I don’t believe the two have to be at odds. In defining Santa Claus’ motives for giving gifts, and in telling his origin story, we completely redefine the way we think of him. In delving into who Saint Nick really was, we came to the conclusion that he must have been close to what we wanted to portray him to be in the book: selfless, humble, and ever-grateful for all that God had given him; never wanting praise or attention, but working, rather, to help people remember and celebrate the Savior.” Jacob Haslem
The Gift Giver is a book to help families teach their children the true meaning of Christmas without taking away from the “magic and wonder” of the holiday, and to do it in a fun and enticing way.

Jacob Haslem, book author and Active Pro Pest Control owner, is a Hurricane Valley resident and HVCC member.
