Time is running out for the annual Downtown Dine O’ Round! You have until Sunday to get your fill at the 42 restaurants in downtown Salt Lake City. You don’t want to miss the wide range of cuisines being offered for this year’s event.

During the Dine O’ Round, diners can sample two-item lunches for $5 or $10, or three course dinners for $15 or $30.

Diners can also enter to win dinner for a year through a photo contest. Just snap photos from your Dine O’ Round experience and upload them on the Downtown Alliance Facebook page at facebook.com/DowntownSLC.

This week is also the grand opening sale for the new Honeyville store, located at 1850 South 389 West, right by the Home Depot and Costco just off of I-15 at 21st South.

Each year, the Chamber names one remarkable woman who demonstrates excellence, creativity and initiative in business, provides valuable service by devoting time and energy to improve the quality of life for the community.

The Chamber is proud to announce Gail Miller as the 2012 ATHENA award recipient.

Along with the ATHENA, the recipients for the Pathfinder award were also announced. Pathfinders are community leaders who have a history of support for women and women’s issues, and those who have worked to further the development and recognition of women.

This year, these women are Dr. Sarah George of the Natural History Museum of Utah, Debra Hoyt of Questar Corporation, Dr. Vivian Lee of University of Utah Health Science, Dr. Susan Madsen of Utah Valley University, and Molly Mazzolini of Infinite Scale.

As part of the Chamber’s 125th anniversary, we want to share the rich history of the members who have made the Chamber so successful.

Cargo-Link has been involved in international shipping and customs clearance services since 1976. It originally started as a small adjunct to Wycoff Trucking Company with a 500-dollar loan and with its original office in a janitor’s closet.

Later in 1977, Cargo-Link International went solo and has been growing ever since. Heavy involvement in the World Trade Association helped grow the business immensely. The company moved from sharing a small office above a warehouse near Pioneer Park in 1976 to their current modern location of 26-thousand square feet near the SLC International Airport.

Cargo-Link offers complete door-to-door services from anywhere throughout the world with an extensive network of agents. Their experienced staff provides services for customs clearance, freight by ocean, air or truck.

For the full reports from this week and weeks past, visit KSL Radio online. Remember to tune in between 12:30 and 1 p.m. to KSL News Radio every week day on 102.7 FM or 1160 AM. If your business is doing something great, let us know and we may just feature it on the Utah Business Report.
