An award was given to a deserving recipient on Tuesday during the Vernal Chamber Luncheon. Uintah County Economic Development, Vernal Innovation Hub, and Vernal Chamber recognized Abbi Hollenbeck for receiving the 2022 Women’s Business Center of Utah (WBCUtah) Entrepreneur of the Year award. “It was so exciting to learn that a Uintah County business has been selected for this prestigious award,” shares Innovation Hub manager Lori Haslem. “She is a great example to local business owners and the citizens of Uintah County.” Abbi and her husband Brandon started Vengeance PowerSports, located on Highway 40 in Ballard, in 2019. Unlike other industries, the COVID pandemic gave a boost to the powersport industry as families spent more time outdoors together. Abbi joined the Women’s Business Center of Utah to access resources as their business continued to grow.
