God is good. That is how Will and Tiffany Threlkeld, owners of Falls Ballroom in Little Falls, describe their journey through the COVID-19 pandemic. The last year has been far from easy for the couple, whose main business is hosting and catering weddings and other events.
Like many other businesses, Falls Ballroom took a hard hit during the state’s shutdown and other implemented restrictions to operate. However, both having served in the Minnesota Army National Guard and being quite resilient, they started thinking about how they could continue their business while also helping other struggling businesses and people in the community. In many ways, it has been one day at a time. However, their effort has not gone unnoticed.
Recently Will and Tiffany found out they were named Small Business of the Year by the Little Falls Area Chamber of Commerce. It came as a surprise to both, especially since there are so many other small businesses in the community that are deserving of the honor, Will said.
“It’s very humbling,” he said.
The anonymous nomination for the recognition said, “Will and Tiffany’s business is one of many that has suffered through the pandemic with the shutdown, but despite this, they have continued (notice I said ‘continued’ because they have always done this) to help in the community, including with the drive-thru community Thanksgiving meal.”
The nomination also highlights the excellent quality of food and service for all those who visit the Falls Ballroom.
