About a dozen independently owned artisan businesses have started or expanded under the Mighty Tieton banner.
They include a fine press and book bindery, a printmaking studio and press, a goat cheese creamery and farm, a cidery and gift-fruit business, a kite production facility, book and wine warehousing and fulfillment, event spaces, rental cabins for short visits and longer residencies, and several artist's studios and workshops. An on-line and physical shop that sells Tieton-Made products and art books opened last year. New ventures are always in the works.

What sorts of other business might fit here? Tieton could use a tavern, a microbrewery, more food choices, and an inn. There are available shop spaces for production work and a clinic. Businesses related to tourism and recreation could fit in. Perhaps a commercial kitchen? The Tieton Economic Development Council meets regularly, and works closely with the City of Tieton to help support current and potential business ventures.
