Three local businesses will discuss how their companies are maneuvering the ups and downs of the pandemic, plus ideas for small businesses to consider for a successful reopening in this week’s free webinar.

Guest host, Keith Brice, president and CEO of Mid State Development Corporation will lead a discussion on local small businesses working through the pandemic with Rick Jhaj, CEO of Countryside Corporation, Eric Giddens, co-founder of Kern River Brewing, and David Dobbs, owner of Imbibe Wine.

Topics will include PPP and EIDL loans, how each company adapted their marketing and communications, and thoughts on how small businesses should approach their repayment plans. Questions from attendees will be taken.
