The Hutchinson Leader, our local paper, featured the Clay Coyote in the September 15, 2021 edition.
“While Clay Coyote’s story is a local one, it didn’t stay that way. Along with nine other businesses from across the U.S., it was highlighted nationally as part of the Small Business Administration’s National Small Business Week Virtual Summit. The Sept. 13-15 event focused on the resilience of America’s entrepreneurs and the small business economy as it has built back up amidst a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic. … “In the last 18 months, there were a lot of moments I thought we weren’t going to make it in all honesty,” Baum said. “I don’t know any small business, unless you were a front line, that didn’t feel that way. When we found out we were being closed down in March (2020) and we were sending everyone home, all of a sudden we weren’t making anything. And the way we stay in business is we make things.””
