      Attracting New Businesses to Boyne City

      Local businesses are coming off a very successful summer season, which is encouraging new businesses to move to this region

      " It ' s exciting for us , just because the city is so engaged in really doing so much for itself," Morel's Bistro Owner Brett Cuper said.

      C uper just moved to the area from Ann Arbor. He had a summer home here. After he saw the business atmosphere, he decided to make the move to start his dream restaurant.

      " It is huge and that's really brought us forward from the chamber and all the business people , they're working very hard to make this a very nice and exciting community to want to reside in and own a business in ," Cuper said.

      M orel's Bistro is one of four businesses that are finally having their grand opening celebrations. The Brook Retirement Community is also one of the new businesses. They are part of a Northern Michigan chain that expanded to the area.

      " This is a really important , I think for Boyne City, because there hasn't been a facility like this and I think it's been so important that number one we are able to help the economy in hiring. We have 14 employees that are all locally hired and I think that brings very good business to to the area," The Brook Boyne City branch Nurse Manager Cindy Goddard.

      S o far The Brook has already filled nearly half of their openings. This immediate impact is sure to be felt by the local economy very soon.

      " That creates jobs in the community just makes things go better in the community and I think that sort of economic increases is being felt throughout the community ," Boyne City Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Jim Baumman said.

      T here have been a total of nine new businesses that opened up in the region this summer. Precision Edge and Boyne Ink will also celebrate their new businesses later this month.
