It pays to be a small business in Perry!

The Downtown Development Authority of the City of Perry (DDA) presented a $26,408.98 check to the Morning By Morning Coffee Company for participating in the Natural Gas Incentive Program.

This program was created by the City of Perry and DDA as an incentive to bring more unique, local restaurants to the Perry Downtown District. Qualified restaurants are eligible for reimbursement up to fifty percent of the total purchase and installation costs of certain commercial natural gas fueled appliances.

Ashley Hardin, City of Perry Economic Development Manager, said, “this incentive is an additional method to entice restaurateurs to the Downtown District. Morning By Morning Coffee Company is a testament to the growing success of local restaurants coming to the downtown area.”

Morning By Morning Coffee Company is the first business to utilize this incentive program.
