This blog is one of several articles that will feature the growing technology industry in Montana. The series, called Big Sky. Big Silicon. Marketing Montana's High-Tech Companies, was conceptualized to offer insight into marketing best practices for the tech industry while also supporting Montana’s high-tech companies by exposing their products and services to a greater audience.
I often make the joke that the reason I like country music is because it was the only radio station picked up in my rural Montana hometown. As I dressed and prepared for school in the mornings, I listened to a country music station out of Great Falls. I distinctly remember a radio live-commercial for a diner. Each morning the diner owner called into the station to promote the specials for that day. The person described delicious homemade soups, an enormous salad bar to satisfy every customer, and sandwiches made with the freshest Montana prime rib. Every morning I’d think, I want to have lunch there.
