COLUMBUS – Secretary of State Jon Husted today announced that as part of an ongoing effort to recognize the impact of Ohio businesses, December’s Ohio Business Profile will highlight businesses across the state that contribute to Ohio’s economy and fall under the “Winter Wonderland” theme.
“This month we have a wide variety of businesses that impact Ohio’s economy,” Secretary Husted said. “As we prepare for winter, let’s not forget about all of the fun activities there are to participate in during this festive season across our great state.”
Companies profiled this month include:

- OhioHealth Chiller Ice Rinks – Dublin, Ohio – The coolest place for family fun with ice hockey leagues, ice skating lessons, and public ice skating.
Launched in June 2011, Ohio Business Profile has helped raise awareness about companies registered and doing business in Ohio that are creating interesting products, offering outstanding service, contributing to their local communities and employing Ohioans in the process. Each month, a handful of diverse businesses linked together by a common theme are featured on the Secretary of State’s website at OhioBusinessProfile.com, where Ohioans are encouraged to go to submit companies they feel are deserving of recognition in future months.
Secretary Husted’s office also releases a monthly report of new business filings in Ohio. Recent data has shown that the number of newly-registered businesses in Ohio is up for the year as compared to the same timeframe last year.
