Phoenixville entered into Ikea's "Small Businesses, Big Dreams" contest

Local public relations firm Ten-Sixteen, Inc. has submitted a video on behalf of Phoenixville into the Ikea "Small Businesses, Big Dreams" sweepstakes. The idea behind the contest is for small towns like Phoenixville to create a three minute video which highlights everything the town has to offer.

From the Ten-Sixteen website

Booming businesses start with dreams and thriving towns begin with dreamers. We have a vision for our business and are working to make a big difference in our town. IKEA wanted to hear from us and other entrepreneurs in our community. We submited a video to enter the Small Businesses, Big Dreams Contest: Furnished by IKEA. IKEA wants to create awareness for unique and growing small towns around the country, and to support the winning entry with a "main street makeover". For the winning town and their community, IKEA designers and furnishings will be put to work to help transform the physical space of up to 10 small businesses with BIG dreams in your neighborhood!

Ten Sixteen, Inc. entered the contest on behalf of Phoenixville, PA. We were at First Friday and BlobFest filming on the street to highlight Phoenixville and the revitalization going on in town.

Phoenixville is one of 50 communities that submitted a video. To see it, click here.

The next step is for Ikea to narrow down the choices to 10. This is supposed to be done by August 2nd. On August 3rd, the finalists will be announced and, at that point, the public can vote on the one they like the best.

If Phoenixville makes the cut I will be sure to post a link so that everyone can vote.

Local Business Spotlight: G Lodge Restaurant

The G Lodge Restaurant is our most recent Local Business Spotlight. Located just a couple of miles from downtown to Phoenixville, the G Lodge has been a go to spot for breakfast and lunch for over 34 years. It was even featured in M.Night Shyamalan's 'The Happening'. The following is from RetroRoadmap.com:

If you’ve just visited Valley Forge National Park you may still be in the Colonial-era headspace, so why not continue in that vein by breakfast/lunching at the G Lodge? The inside of this unassuming roadside eatery (attached to an auto repair shop) echoes the log cabin structures of adjacent national park...just not as drafty.

Daily specials are listed above the counter, and there’s a lot on the menu as well. My eyes to always be bigger than my stomach here, though I’ve never sprung for the G-Buster special. Unlike many diner fans I am not a fan of breakfast homefries so I love that they have potato patties (deep fried!) as an option.

Local Baker Wins on Netflix Sugar Rush

Peri Anderson, owner of Brooklyn Girl Bakery, was part of a team that won the most recent episode of Sugar Rush on Netflix. I reached out to Peri to learn a little more about her bakery:
I started out taking a recreational cake decorating class with my mom when I was still living in NY. I loved it and moved to PA to be with my boyfriend (now husband), where I began interning for a bakery in Chestnut Hill. Over the course of 7 years I worked my way up from intern to pastry chef until I decided to leave in 2012. I do all of my baking in our home kitchen which is licensed and insured by the Dept. of Agriculture. Initially, I wanted to focus on wedding cakes so I immediately started contacting wedding venues in the area to see if they would include me a wedding cake vendor in their packages. I currently work with over 10 venues and several caterers in the area. While wedding cakes are my main focus, I also make cakes and cookie favors for all occasions. While I don’t have a retail locatio…
