After the grocery store in Hanna closed several years ago, residents were forced to drive to Rawlins for food. Kyle and Amelia Young opened the Hanna Hometown Market in July of 2015.

Combined with affordable housing costs, Young felt a grocery store would help to revitalize the town and open it up for economic development. The effort was supported by Jim Drever, regional director of the Wyoming Entrepreneur Small Business Development Center, which provided business plan advising that led to private investment. Local volunteers have also helped to bring this important feature back to the community; volunteers cleaned the building, painted, installed shelving and helped unload the first shipments.
