The Door County Economic Development Corporation recently announced their annual award winners in a virtual ceremony. Their “Industry of the Year” award goes to the Door County Cooperative. This award recognizes a local construction, service, or manufacturing business which as made a substantial impact on the community while enjoying significant accomplishments over the past year. Since they began in 1939, the Co-op has expanded several times, purchasing many different buildings and existing businesses to further expand its offerings and better serve the community. Then, the DCEDC’s “Entrepreneur of the Year” award has been awarded to Mitch Larson of the On-Deck Clothing Company. This award recognizes a local business which has taken the initiative to start and grow their venture in Door County. Larson’s roots in the county date back to the late 1800s at the very site in Sister Bay where one of his stores currently operates from today. On-Deck is a classic sportswear retailer which strives to provide a unique and special experience to its customers. The company has grown immensely over the years and currently has 3 Door County locations. Congratulations to Mitch Larson of On-Deck Clothing Company, as well as to the Door County Cooperative.
