Logan company, Caffe Ibis Coffee Roasting Company, was honored as a Top Business at the Zions Bank “Speaking on Business” luncheon on Feb. 5. Caffe Ibis was among 15 companies recognized by Zions Bank President and CEO Scott Anderson for its example of entrepreneurship in Utah.
In business for 40 years, Randy Wirth and Sally Sears were among the first in Utah to start an artisan custom coffee roasting house. They developed a strong business ethic to contribute to their community while making sustainable business decisions. Setting a high standard for their offerings, many of their coffees are triple-certified as organic, fair trade and shade grown. Caffe Ibis has been recognized for its contributions with awards from the Utah Society for Environmental Education, Specialty Coffee Association of America and Cache Humane Society.
“We commend businesses like Caffe Ibis for their commitment to sustainability and customer satisfaction, and use of best business practices,” said Chris Redgrave, host of the KVNU 610 AM radio program “Speaking on Business.”
Since 1997, “Speaking on Business” has highlighted more than 4,000 diverse businesses throughout Idaho and Utah. The show, which airs Monday through Friday between 7 and 8 a.m. and 5 and 6 p.m., features a wide variety of businesses. Other award winners for 2015 include those in industries such as outdoor outfitting, online job training, food and retail, language translation and construction.
“Small businesses are integral to the engine that powers our state economy,” said Anderson. “Zions Bank is committed to supporting the entrepreneurial spirit that leads to job creation and enriches our communities.”
