Comcast Business and Inc. Magazine have announced that The Sister Shop in North Logan, Utah and Happy Monkey Hummus have been selected as regional winners of the Innovations 4 Entrepreneurs (I4E) program.

Along with 30 small business winners from around the nation, the two companies will be awarded $5,000 in cash, Comcast Business Internet and TV services for two years, and $2,500 to be used for other Comcast services. Both companies will also receive services from partners of Comcast Upware, including Cisco, Microsoft, Symantec, DocuSign, Soonr and Swiftpage Engage.

“We have been wanting to start our own clothing line, so I was able to use the money to buy some fabric to get some custom clothing in our store,” said Lori Bolan, owner of The Sister Shop.

David McFate of Happy Monkey Hummus and Bolen were selected based on essays each wrote about their experience using Comcast Business Internet.

In Bolen’s essay she detailed the necessity of having access to the Internet at work.

“We had CenturyLink, but they only had the lowest speed available in our new location so I contacted Comcast. I’ve been really happy with the service. I do all my ordering and business I couldn’t run my business without Internet. It’s just essential to my business. It’s been really reliable and fast,” Bolen said.

From the 32 regional winners, six grand prize winners will be selected and announced during the week of June 23, 2014. These six businesses will receive a $20,000 cash prize and an all-expenses-paid trip to New York City where they will receive individual consulting from Marcus Lemonis, Robert Irvine, and senior executives at Comcast. Also included is an awards dinner prepared by Chef Irvine and a VIP tour of 30 Rockefeller Center.
