On Monday, August 12, the Morris County Board of Commissioners met with Parsippany Township officials and representatives at the Parsippany Area Chamber of Commerce to award a $15,000 small business grant to Zoomus Marketing, a local company that announced the launch of a new Morris County small business mobile app called Morris Now.
Morris Now connects local businesses with over 500,000 residents residing in Morris County. In addition to promoting small businesses, the app also shares information about local promotions, events, venues, school alerts, and other local push notifications. The mobile app is available for download on Google Play and the Apple Store for free.
Parsippany Mayor Jamie Barberio, members of the Parsippany Area Chamber of Commerce, the Parsippany Economic Development Committee, and the Director of Business Resources at the Morris County Economic Development Corporation praised Frank Cahill, owner of Zoomus Marketing, for his commitment to economic development and vision in developing the Morris Now app.
The app launch was announced simultaneously with Zoomus Marketing’s award of a $15,000 grant under the Morris County Small Business Grant Program. Morris County Deputy Commissioner John Krickus, Commissioner Thomas Mastrangelo, and Commissioner Stephen Shaw announced that Zoomus Marketing had qualified for the grant program which is designed to aid small businesses that are working through specific COVID-19 pandemic expense challenges incurred after March 3, 2022.
To date, more than 600 Morris County small businesses and non-profit organizations have been approved to receive grant funding. The County Commissioners shared that the program has been an asset to the Morris County business community and urged more businesses to apply before the application deadline on Friday, September 30.
