Goshen–County Executive Steven Neuhaus announced a program on Oct. 19 to highlight new businesses in the community called “Open for Business.”

“Orange County is a community that is definitely open for business,” Neuhaus said. “Our cities, towns, and villages understand this message and are hard at work promoting business-friendly environments. I envision that the Open for Business program will help jumpstart local businesses and ensure that they prosper.”

Neuhaus made his first “Open for Business” tour stop on Oct. 19 at Orange County Bagel Bakery in Goshen. The county executive had coffee with two of the owners, Bob Kunis and his son, Brent. The Kunis family opened their Goshen location earlier this year. They have been operating another Orange County Bagel Bakery in Middletown since August of 2013.

“The county executive is very progressive. He’s very business-orientated,” Bob Kunis said. The younger Kunis agreed. “Steve is a young go-getter. That’s what we need.”

Neuhaus invites new businesses in Orange County to contact his office to schedule a time for him to visit their establishment. He will take a picture with the owner(s) and post it on his Facebook page at

“I look forward to meeting new business owners and building relationships with them,” Neuhaus said. “We will continue to make sure that this county moves forward, led by innovative economic development projects and ideas.”
