WASHINGTON, DC – A Clear Lake couple is the first runner-up in the National Small Business Person of the Year contest.

Brad and Angie Barber of Cabin Coffee were honored by the U.S. Small Business Administration at the annual National Small Business Week Ceremony.

They received an SBA loan to open a second location in Mason City in 2009 and got another loan in 2017 to cover construction costs for a new distribution and franchise support center in Clear Lake.

The 2019 Small Business Person of the Year is Jennifer Herbert and Jeff Herbert of Superstition Meadery in Arizona.
