A vibrant local economy is about more than retailers and restaurants. It’s also about the service-based businesses that keep our economy running at full speed. We’re happy to welcome Richards Brandt Miller Nelson, with their legal expertise and longstanding engagement in our local community, to the Local First Leaders Circle. We spoke with Barry Scholl, to learn more about Richards Brandt Miller Nelson, and why they support the Local First Movement.

Q: What are 2-3 of your favorite locally owned, independents businesses?
A: Personally, several of my favorite independent local businesses include Weller Book works and the King’s English Bookshop, Acoustic Music, and any number of restaurants, including, most recently, Frida Bistro; however, we’re fortunate to have so many excellent locally owned choices when it comes to shopping, dining, and other services.
Q: Why do you support the Local First movement?
A: Without a robust local business economy, a city can easily lose its unique character and become an “Anyplace, U.S.A.” Local businesses also contribute to the local economy by providing local jobs, fostering sustainable economic stability, and supporting educational advancement. The Local First movement is vital to Utah’s future, and helps shape our quality of life.
