Located in the parking lot of the State Farm Insurance office in downtown Kanab, Taro Coffee Bar's distinctive wood-sided mobile shop serves more than just coffee, with a menu that includes hand-mixed energy drinks, hot and iced teas, and a variety of unique Italian sodas.

A member of the Kanab Area Chamber of Commerce, Taro Coffee Bar celebrated with a ribbon cutting on Small Business Saturday, November 26th, at 10 AM. About 35 people turned out to welcome first-time business owners Tonya and Adam Ortiz.

Commissioner-elect Celeste Meyeres thanked Tonya and Adam for opening their new venture in Kanab, and Chamber Vice-President Ron Thomas noted that ribbon cuttings are one of his favorite things, adding “I’m super-excited about this new member, Taro Coffee. Tonya and Adam are great small business owners, and we are thrilled to honor them this morning on Small Business Saturday!”

Taro owner Tonya Ortiz told the group, “We’re so happy to be part of this community! Thank you so much for coming out, it’s an honor!”
