Describe what your organization provides for its customers:
Give us a brief history of your business and what makes it stand out:
We are celebrating 50 years of service to our community and tourists. Betty’s Country Store was established in 1973 by George and Betty Fain. Now the 3rd generation of the family, John Thomas Broadway is operating Betty’s Country Store. We started in an 800 square foot building and have grown to 10,000 square foot building. We have kept the same “country” look that we had in the original store. We carry a large variety of books about the history of Helen and surrounding areas. The books provide information about hiking, walking the waterfalls and traveling around the North Georgia mountains.
Where do you hope to see your business in 12 months?
With a younger generation running the business, John Thomas Broadway is bringing a lot of new ideas and making updates on our looks. He is making positive changes to the inside as well as the outside of the store. We hope Betty’s Country Store will add countless more products and services for the public.
