Business Scene for the week of 5/22/19

Shuttle service available
Steve Betts and Brad Rice have started a new business called Sierra Charters Shuttle Service in Quincy. They are available for any sort of group event such as weddings and sightseeing group tours. The two decided to offer this service because they saw a need in Plumas County for transportation to events that are held away from lodging venues. Steve is a co-owner of East Quincy Barber Company and the owner of The Depot Barber Shop in Portola and Brad works for the school district. Both live in Quincy with their respective families.
