New businesses helping Dubois economy boom in 2019


“There’s a wonderful energy in town right now,” Claudia Janiszewski told the County 10 Podcast.

Claudia took over as the Dubois Chamber of Commerce President in May.  “One of the main things I’ve wanted to get involved in the chamber with was that in Dubois we have over 53 non-profit organizations, which is pretty outstanding considering we’re a town of less than 1,000. It shows that we’re a very giving community,” she added.

Janiszewski told us that the community has hosted several fun events over the summer and noted that many local businesses and residents think tourism has increased steadily this year.

The community, and state, are buzzing right now about the National Military Vehicle Museum which will open in May 2020. 

While that may be stealing the headlines, there are a number of new businesses opening up in town including a new restaurant and new gallery already this summer.
