Carpet-cleaning business to get a new owner

A carpet-cleaning business is about to change hands.

David Hebert is in the process of buying the ChemDry business in Craig from Jerry Paulson.

Hebert has 20 years of experience with ChemDry in Utah.

Hebert was the first ChemDry franchise owner out of 2,800 in the nation to use a truck-mounted hot-water extraction system, he said.

The cleaning system is carbon-based and doesn't use soaps or detergents, which can attract more dirt, ChemDry officials say.

When the sale is final, Paulson plans to "semi-retire" and work part-time for Hebert, he said.

Wild West may be getting new owners

Wild West Bar-B-Q could change owners by the end of the month.

The current owners, Joy and Gabriel Daigle, say they plan to sell the restaurant, 905 W. Victory Way, to a local buyer.

The buyers, who plan to purchase the building, said they don't plan to change the menu. They declined to give their name before the sale is final.

Joy Daigle said she and her husband have bought and sold about 30 businesses over the years.

"We get a place going, and we sell it," she said.

The Daigles said they would stay in Craig and may even continue using the Wild West Bar-B-Q truck to sell food.

Biz workshops planned

The Small Business Devel--opment Center has three workshops planned for coming months.

The center will host a workshop Thursday at Colorado Northwest Community College in Craig about how to buy and sell products on eBay. The price is $45.

The center is planning an advanced eBay workshop for Saturday in Steamboat Springs.

The center also is planning a Dec. 15 workshop at the college on "the art of retailing."
