Chamber Newsletter Headline 2017
October 7, 2019

In September of 2011, a young, 28-year-old boy with braces on his teeth was given an opportunity that would positively shape the rest of his life.  Eight years later, I look back at that boy who so desperately wanted to prove himself and leave a positive mark in the world--or at least in the Heber Valley.  Eight years later, my heart is full of gratitude for the life-long lessons in leadership that I’ve learned as the executive director of Heber Valley’s tourism, economic development, and Chamber of Commerce.

On October 22, the Heber Valley Chamber will meet for our regular monthly lunch.  During this meeting, I will be sharing eight leadership lessons I’ve learned during my time in the Heber Valley and be saying farewell as I begin a new chapter in my professional life in the Governor’s Office of Economic Development.  I can’t thank the members of our Chamber enough for the love and support and friendship I’ve shared with you all these years. I look forward to seeing you then.

Warmest Regards,


Ryan Starks 


Business of the Month
Lola's Street Kitchen

Lolas Staff.JPG

Any chef will tell you when it comes to making great tasting, quality food, it not only takes great tasting and quality ingredients but knowing how to combine those flavors to make them work together instead of competing against each other. The story of Lola’s Street Kitchen works much in the same way. For owners David and Mandy Medina Lola’s is a product of great ingredients, but not just the kind that are cooked. The quality ingredients that make up the success of Lola’s come from connection, community, and family. 

Over the past few years David and Mandy have honed and crafted Lola’s into a popular street kitchen. That success has led them to from a food truck on the side of the streets to a more permanent spot. Today, Lola’s has a physical location on Main Street in Midway where the still serve the same quality food with the same dedication to the community they love. 

They Heber Valley Chamber of Commerce is Proud to recognize Lola’s Street Kitchen as the October Business of the Month.
