CHATHAM — Dat Donut will receive a $150,000 grant check and other prizes on Friday.
Darryl and Andrea Townson, owners of the doughnut shop at 82nd and Cottage Grove, are among 20 small-business owners across the country selected to receive a portion of the $3 million Mission Main Street Grant from Chase Bank.
“The Mission Main Street Grants program is a way for Chase to say ‘Thank you’ to companies that mean so much to their customers and communities,” said Laura Helmuth, senior vice president of Chase Business Banking. “We were inspired by scores of business owners who are following their dreams, and exude such passion, commitment and dedication,” she said.
In addition to grant money, each business owner will receive a trip to Google’s headquarters in California for a marketing workshop next month, a marketing toolkit, a Chromebook laptop and a $2,000 coupon toward a market research study from Google.
