Chamber of Commerce Honors Business of the Year Mission Ranches and Big Valley Labor

BY BROCK HILL On Nov. 20, Mission Ranches/Big Valley Labor were named Business of the Year by the King City Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture. The two companies share the same owners and share operations. The Business of the Year award is given to a business based out of the King City area that gives back to the community, and that has been in the area for more than three years. Mission Ranches opened in 1988 and Big Valley opened in 1998. Alex Romans explained the relationship between the two companies. “Mission Ranches does the growing of the crops and Big Valley Labor supplies the labor,” he said, adding that together, they form a grower/ shipper relationship. John Romans described what made the company so successful: “Hard work and good business partners.” “Good employees! We treat our employees really well, and it makes for a happy working environment,” added Alex Romans. John Romans, John Ramirez and Alex Romans went on to explain how vertical integration helped their business as well. Vertical integration is a style of management control where a supply chain is united under one owner. By growing their own product, providing their own labor force and selling

Brock Hill/South County Newspapers Owners John Romans, John Ramirez and Alex Romans their own product, the company remains highly efficient. When asked how the King City Chamber went about surprising them with the Business of the Year award, Ramirez joked, “By lying!” Mikel Ann Miller had told Alex Romans and Ramirez that she needed to talk about the Heritage Foundation. Members of the King City Chamber arrived early and waited inside of Big Valley Labor/Mission Ranches. When Romans and Ramirez arrived, they revealed balloons and flowers, and informed them that they had been picked for Business of the Year. “It was surprising,” Ramirez said.

2013 KING CITY CHAMBER DIRECTORY 22

As to what the Business of the Year award means to them, John Romans said, “It’s an honor. We appreciate them appreciating us.” “It’s good to be recognized,” Ramirez said. Alex Romans explained what motivates them to give back to the community. “There’s a need for it,” he said. “We live here and we work here. We see things every day. We recognize the need to support these programs. We all grew up around here.” Mission Ranches/Big Valley Labor both support the community in a variety of ways. Many of their employees volunteer time to help with community projects throughout

King City. Mission Ranches/ Big Valley Labor supports local fundraisers, the Heritage Foundation, the Salinas Valley Fairgrounds, Little League, Hartnell College, Mission San Antonio, the King City Library, Sober Grad, and King City High School. Mission Ranches/ Big Valley Labor give out scholarships every year to King City High School students. They were also a major contributor in both money and labor to the King City High School track. John Romans, John Ramirez, and Alex Romans explained how they are all individually involved in the community and how that, in turn, helps Mission Ranches/Big Valley Labor be so involved in the community.

Chamber of Commerce Honors Citizen of the Year Floyd Owens

BY BROCK HILL The King City Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture surprised Floyd Owens on Nov. 20 with the announcement that he had won the Citizen of the Year Award. The title is awarded to a citizen who has contributed to the community in a variety of ways and has lived in the area for more than three years. “I was shocked! They kind of tricked me,” Owens said. The King City Chamber had called Matthew Owens at the Chevron on Broadway Circle, Floyd Owens’ business, and said they were looking for a judge for the King City Christmas Parade and told Matthew that they would come by Chevron to discuss it further with Floyd. Floyd Owens described how he saw several cars pull up at the same time and how people from the King City Chamber got out of them. “There were eight or nine of them, and they had flowers and balloons. I had already made my mind up that I wasn’t going to be a judge. They walked in and I thought, ‘How am I going to refuse this?” The Chamber explained the real reason they were there and presented Owens with the Citizen of the Year award, catching him completely off guard. “They really surprised me,” Owens said. “It’s really

2012 HONORS

Chamber of Commerce Honors Friend of the Community Kathy Merritt BY BROCK HILL KING CITY — Kathy Merritt received the Friend of the Community award from the King City Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture in a surprise announcement on Nov. 21. The award is given to a member of the community who has contributed a lot of local support and assistance. “I was totally surprised! I did not see it coming,” Merritt said. Sharon Pursley arranged to have Merritt in town by inviting her to have coffee at Denny’s. When Merritt arrived at Denny’s, Pursley and Mikel Ann Miller began asking her about the Christmas Parade. “I didn’t notice anybody walk by the windows. So they must have skirted the outside of the building,” Kathy said. Members of the King City Chamber hid in the Denny’s lobby until Miller gave them the signal to surprise Merritt. Merritt was presented balloons and flowers during the surprise announcement that she was the recipient of the Friend of the Community award. When asked about what the award meant to her, Merritt said, “It is satisfying being acknowledged, but it’s not my primary reason for doing things for the community.” Merritt is involved in the Lighted Christmas Parade in King City, which was held on Nov. 30. Merritt assisted with the parade parking lot prior to the parade, making sure that

Merritt is an active member in the Ladies Auxiliary to the Veterans of Foreign Wars. The Ladies Auxiliary provides support to active troops, veterans, and their families. “We do a lot of things for the troops and for the serving military out of Fort Hunter Liggett,” Merritt said. “We prepare boxes for them, we bake pies for them, we bake cookies for them; we do all kinds of good stuff.” The Ladies Auxiliary also provides items to the Veterans Transition Center at Fort Ord for homeless veterans and their families. Additionally, the Ladies Auxiliary mails care packages to the active troops in Afghanistan, and helps

CHAMBER FARMERS’ MARKET

Farmers’ Market BY DAISY CHAVEZ KING CITY — The last day of the King City Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture’s Farmers Market finished up a strong run, with the Youth Orchestra Salinas students closing out the day with music and a new vendor committed for next year’s market. The market kicked off with members of the Youth Orchestra Salinas (YoSal) playing a tune on recorders, followed by the older strings students playing with conductor Steve Ettinger. “Up until the very last day we got a new vendor,” said Cindi Mora, Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture manager. “This vendor hopes to come next year.” The new vendor has a license to sell nursery stock, plants and trees, and they are an addition to the market’s vendor who sells fresh flowers. In comparison with last year’s market, this one has a few stark contrasts, including the location between First and Second Street on Broadway, in front of Moon’s Meats and Deli. “I think we have finally found a home for our farmers market,” said Mora of the move. The market moved various locations to ensure its success. Originally a block down, the market obstructed a few businesses and for a while, it was off Broadway entirely. “The new location seemed to make our merchants happy,” Mora said. “The

When it was off the street, it was out of sight, out of mind, and now its on Broadway like the community wanted.” Another pro to having the market at that location, Mora said, is that it didn’t block as many business fronts. An added benefit for the market vendors was the partnership between the Mee Memorial Hospital and the Chamber of Commerce. The vendors could sell their produce through the chamber to the hospital at an affordable price and on their way to the weekly market. “Our farmer’s market

vendors were able to provide produce to the hospital even on slow days,” Mora said. “They would make their deliveries before the market, and this keeps the vendors happy and coming back. They will continue to have the relationship to sell yearround.” The produce is an added benefit to the hospital because they get local products for less because it reduces the costs in storage, travel and in return get fresh food. “Most of our produce vendors are local,” said Mora. “[The produce vendors] are all chamber members, and as long as they are able to

produce, they can deliver to the hospital.” When asked what was ahead for the market, Mora said she is always looking for new vendors and to improve the market. “We’re open to doing something different,” Mora said. “Were open to suggestions on how we can better improve the market. Just let me know” Vince and Tina from South Valley Auto Plaza let the market borrow the sound system every week for music, and AG Pluming supplied the portable lavatories.
