MIAMI COUNTY INNOVATION SPOTLIGHT
To celebrate Miami County businesses that are being innovative during difficult times, we have decided to Spotlight one special business every month.

The spotlight is presented in collaboration with Miami County Economic Development, Louisburg Chamber of Commerce, Osawatomie Chamber of Commerce, Paola Chamber of Commerce and Spring Hill Chamber of Commerce.

Businesses featured in the Innovative Business Spotlight are nominated by their local chamber of commerce, with nominations rotating among the Miami County communities.

The Drive-In at Midway - Paola/Osawatomie, located on 327th Street "midway" between Osawatomie and Paola, boasts its title as one of a few drive-ins left in the state. The family behind the Drive-In took advantage of the down time last year to make improvements to the property and move from being just the "movie" spot in Miami County to being that and so much more. They are this month's Business Innovation Spotlight! Learn more.
