In case you haven’t heard our news, Kiln is opening in Park City, Utah on April 1, 2021. In the months leading up to the launch, we’ll be highlighting local innovators and changemakers. These folks keep Park City’s wheels turning; their ideas, businesses, and products leave us coming back for more. 

Amp Human: Skin Products to Improve Human Performance

Amp Human is on a mission to unlock the full athletic potential of the human body with skincare products that leverage innovative technology. Their PR lotion unlocks the natural electrolyte bicarb to help you make training gains, faster. And their newly launched D+ lotion could help combat vitamin D deficiencies that nearly 70% of Americans face. Amp Human’s lotion contains 5,000 IU of vitamin D3, which you apply directly to your forearms twice daily. 

They were recently named Company of the Month by the Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development, and since moving here in 2018 from Southern California, Amp Human has come to embody their values of Park City. COO Erica Good wrote in a recent press release, “Moving to Park City is one of the best things we could have done for Amp Human. Utah feels tailor-made to companies that serve athletes as ours does and the infrastructure and talent are fantastic. We feel very fortunate to combine life in a mountain town with a place that’s great for our business.”

Park City Film: Twilight Drive-In Movies at Utah Olympic Park 

Park City Film takes the cake for their innovation in creating community during Covid-19. In their 25th year of bringing independent cinema to Summit County, the non-profit put their all into making sure we could be together (safely) for drive-in movie nights at the Utah Olympic Park. 

Park City Film also rallied behind the community with free tickets for essential workers on the frontlines of the Covid-19 pandemic. The Drive-Ins were a smashing success with the Park City community — sold-out shows, featured local caterers and restaurants, and comprehensive social distancing policies left us yearning for warm weather and the return of the drive-ins. 

Kodiak Cakes: Serving Sustainable, Whole-Grain Treats

Kodiak Cakes sells flapjack and waffle mixes, oatmeal cups, granola bars, and baking mixes that are made by Wasatch and Park City locals, for locals. We personally love their product! Our team uses their mix at our Lehi and Salt Lake monthly 'Waffle Wednesday' event. The family-owned business is all about creating nourishing food with ingredients that were once “fit for the life of lumberjacks, mountain men, and trailblazers” and are now “reimagined for today’s frontier.” 

Kodiak landed a spot on Utah Business’ Best Companies to Work For and they believe that staying small has its perks. Employees are given a Bear Bucks stipend to spend on outdoor activities, and Kodiak leads by example by donating a portion of profits to conservation efforts like Vital Ground. They uphold the sustainable roots of a growing Park City and most recently played a part in the collective effort to preserve what is now the Bonanza Flat Conservation Area. We’re grateful for the ways in which they champion our community’s health. 

Park City is home to the very best. We’re excited to call this place our home, too.
