A new business in Jefferson has been awarded Jefferson Wants You Incentive Funds for new start-ups.
The RC Shack located at 702 E Lincolnway will soon be opening with owner Darrin Charlson. Darrin is relocating from Churdan to this new location to expand his inventory of remote controlled cars, boats, planes, choppers, and rock crawlers. The shop will have vehicles, both new and used for sale, repair parts, and he can also provide repair services. A small outdoor race track is planned to race and teach how to run cars. The Jefferson Wants You team awarded Darrin $2,500 towards his start-up costs. There will be an announcement when the RC Shack is officially open for business. Darrin enjoys being involved with the Elk’s and other volunteer programs.
New business start-ups in Jefferson are eligible to apply for one-time start-up costs through the Jefferson Wants You Incentive Fund. Remote workers who already live in Greene County or moving here are eligible to apply for a one year membership at Gravitate Coworking.

This project is a Rural Return project funded through local utilities, financial institutions, and a grant from Grow Greene County.
