Coco's Cottage Awarded Pickens Chamber Small Business of the Month



12/14/2015 ~ by Lexi Hardman, Pickens Chamber of Commerce Communications Manager

Please join the Pickens County Chamber of Commerce in congratulating the December Small Business of the Month, Coco’s Cottage. A framed certificate was awarded to Coco’s Cottage at the December Chamber of Commerce Breakfast by Jarod Trammell of Community Bank of Pickens County, sponsor of the Business of the Month program.

Since opening in 2008, John and Nancy Watkins have worked hard to establish a business focused on customer service and greeting each guest with a smile and warm welcome. After originally opening their business in Hickory Flat, they moved to Jasper and joined the Chamber in 2012. They are passionate about economic development of Pickens County and downtown Jasper. Therefore, moving their business back to John’s hometown in order to fill a need Jasper was lacking, women’s clothing and accessories, was the right choice for the couple. They feel blessed with their decision and their loyal customers, who have become more like family.

Over the years, Coco’s Cottage has seen tremendous growth and has even double their employee count. Despite the growth keeping them busy, they still find time to give back in countless ways. They are both very involved in Habitat for Humanity, facilitating and organizing fashion show fundraisers for various non-profits, and donate various gift certificates to numerous non-profits. As Past President of the Jasper Merchants Association, they helped organize Jasper’s Christmas Parade, Trick-or-Treating on Main Street, Easter Egg Hunt, and Car Show. In addition, they are active participants in Chamber events, such as Business After Hours, Chamber Picnic, Annual Auto Give-Away, Professional Women of Pickens County, and the Downtown Alliance Committee.

Nominations for future Small Business or Large Business awards are now being accepted. Contact Denise Duncan for nomination forms at denise@pickenschamber.com or visit us at the Pickens County Chamber of Commerce located at 500 Stegall Drive, Jasper, GA
