State Reps. Brenda Kupchick (R-132) and Tony Hwang (R-134) recently visited a new Fairfield business, the Red Mango on Black Rock Turnpike, to collect views about the state’s business climate and offer support to the new Fairfield employers.

Red Mango general manager Sim Lamba and his team gave Kupchick and Hwang a tour and a taste test.

Red Mango sells all-natural frozen yogurt and smoothies, and it is the first frozen yogurt retailer to earn the National Yogurt Association’s Live and Active Cultures seal for meeting the required criteria for healthy frozen yogurt.

“As a small business owner, I understand the hard work it takes to start and run your own business,” Kupchick said. “Government should encourage residents who take on the challenge.”

“Supporting our local small businesses is critical to the continued vibrancy of our community,” Hwang said. “We need to recognize the hard work and efforts of local entrepreneurs and help toward their long-term success.”

Red Mango recently expanded its menu to include all-natural made-to-order fruit and yogurt parfaits and fresh fruit smoothies, and also introduced all-natural probiotic iced teas and lattes.

Kupchick and Hwang said they both supported passage of the state’s Small Business Express Program, which gives out low-interest loans to companies with fewer than 50 employees to expand facilities or hire additional employees.

The representatives said that more than 1,000 small businesses have received money through the program, including some in Fairfield.
