Ribbon Cuttings
Jo To Go LLP
June 30, 2018
Congratulations to Amanda Thorstensen with Jo to Go on her ribbon cutting on Saturday, June 30 in conjunction with their 3rd Annual Ice Cream Social. Amanda was sharing with us that Jo To Go was started by their family. They sold it and then bought it back. And, now Amanda (who started out working while she was still in school) owns and runs it.
Her Dad had a much smaller building when they started but they built this larger place. Those of you that have been around for awhile will remember the old Highway 287 running on a curve past Jo To Go.

Amanda said that the best part is getting to see her customers and getting to know them. She started throwing her Ice Cream Social so she could have more time to spend with her customers. Amanda said she sees lots of locals but also gets a lot of business from those that head up to Carter Lake.

Welcome to the chamber, Jo To Go. We want to thank our chamber members who came out on a Saturday night to help Amanda celebrate her ribbon cutting.

She conducts business at home presentations and can take group orders. Be sure to give her a call at (720) 320-7014 to schedule your event today.
