Posted: Updated:

BIRMINGHAM, Mich. (AP) - Two Detroit-area small businesses are among 12 nationwide selected to receive $250,000 grants from Chase through the Mission Main Street program.

In addition to the grants, Google will host each business for a marketing workshop at its California headquarters.

Nearly 35,000 small businesses from all 50 states submitted applications.

The winners from Michigan are Edibles Rex in Detroit and The Robot Garage from Birmingham.

Edibles Rex provides freshly cooked meals to children in area daycare and K-12 schools. The Robot Garage offers hands-on classes, events, products and experiences for robot and Lego enthusiasts.

The two Michigan businesses and the 10 other winners were chosen by a panel of experts for demonstrating a solid business plan and their likelihood of succeeding within a 2-year time frame.
