The Greensburg-Decatur County Chamber of Commerce formally welcomed Midwest Computer Solution, Inc. to the Greensburg community and into the Chamber's fold of member businesses Friday afternoon with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
Besides the ribbon-cutting ceremony, Midwest owner and operator Tom Ganus also marked the occasion with free hamburgers and hot dogs throughout the day.
The smell of grilling hamburgers and hot dogs permeated the air even as the ribbon cutting unfolded.
Dr. Michael Layne, pastor of Greensburg's Lutheran Orthodox Church, provided a prayer, entreating the almighty to bless the business to the good of both its owners and the Greensburg community.
After the ceremony, Ganus told the Daily News that Midwest caters to a diverse range of business and personal-computing and communication needs.
"We do in-shop, on-site or remote computer service," Ganus explained. "We also offer Internet access through Comcast. When you sign up through us, you'll officially be a Comcast customer, but the advantage is that you'll receive our customer service and support."
Ganus also touted Midwest's DSL service.
"We have our own DSL Internet service and our own dial-up," he continued. "We're also a Hughes-Net satellite sales agent. Basically, no matter where you live in the county or city of Greensburg, no matter how remote, we can fill your Internet access needs. We'll find a way to get you hooked in."
Ganus also stressed that he runs a community-minded, Christian business.
"Ten percent of our net profits each month go a local, charitable human-needs organization," he said. "We're kicking our first month off in support of Bread of Life. Next month and every month thereafter, we'll switch to another worthy organization."
Adam Burchfield, service manager for all three Midwest locations (the other two are in Columbus and Seymour), manned the grill at Friday's ribbon cutting and grand opening. Grilling duties marked a significant departure from Burchfield's normal job with Midwest.
"I do on-site computer work for all three locations," he said, flipping burgers and hot dogs over an open flame. "If you have a computer hooked up, we'll service it. Whether need me at your home or business or if you just need help over the phone, we've got it covered."
