Testimonials from local businesses in Ravalli County

Bonnie J.
Local Business Owner

As a business operating in Ravalli County, Julie Foster, along with Alice Mariana and John Schneeberger over at RCEDA have been very helpful to us. We very much appreciate all the help and knowledge that they possess and it is so awesome to know that we can call upon them from time to time to see what options may be available to us in the ever changing market. Knowing that we don’t have to know everything, but we have Julie and her team at RCEDA there to bounce things off of is an invaluable resource for us.
