Locals recognized for excellence in food safety
Happy Jacks Barbeque, Pizza p.a.d. and Holyoke Elementary School are three of only 15 establishments across northeast Colorado that received Excellence in Food Safety Awards for 2017. These awards are not easy to obtain; there are 472 establishments across the region eligible to receive this award at the beginning of each year.
