Adrian Smith Presents Jenna Schweitzer with Inaugural Young Entrepreneurs of the Year Award

Stop by the Vault on Friday, August 23rd at 1:30 pm. Congressman Adrian Smith will present Jenna Schweitzer with an Inaugural Young Entrepreneurs of the Year Award.

Excerpt from the award announcement: The Medina Street Vault Coffeehouse & Bistro, Cairo: Through the experiences of her high school job as barista, owner Jenna Schweitzer realized her life’s passion was coffee. She knew she wanted to open her own coffee shop, and to attempt to share her passion with her hometown.  In 2017, thanks to Jenna’s vision, hard work, and the support of her family she opened her coffee shop and bistro in a former bank building in Cairo, and strategically selected her food and drink menu to ensure she complemented, and supported other local businesses. Schweitzer feels The Vault has become an experience area residents turn to when they want a place to meet their friends, relax, and lose two or three hours in conversation.  Her goal of creating a family-centered environment to share her passion with others has become a reality.

“I’m proud to announce the winners of the inaugural “Young Entrepreneur Awards.”  I appreciated the opportunity to review the numerous submissions from every region of Nebraska’s Third District.  Each nomination was a great example of young and rising leaders working to strengthen their community with their entrepreneurial spirit. Rep. Smith said. To all Nebraskans who work tirelessly to grow our economy, I will continue to support your efforts and pursue policies to get the federal government out of the way and empower your success.” — Adrian Smith

Congratulations on your award Jenna and thank you for giving the community the Medina Street Vault.
