Over 40 restaurants and specialty food members
Host a Business After Hours.
The chamber holds an informal after-work networking event once a month. The host venue is responsible for providing light appetizers for @ 50+ from 5:30-7pm. Some venues include a wine tasting as part of the event but most often it’s a cash bar. Better suited to hosting a morning event? Our monthly Coffee Connects are held before work – host venues are asked to provide LOTS of coffee and light breakfast finger foods.
Very popular with our restaurant members are the in-kind food sponsorships at chamber events in return for marketing and logo exposure. Whole Foods,
BRIO's, Del Frisco's and Baker’s Best have all been food partners at chamber events in the past year, providing catered food for 50-100+ attendees.
The chamber can facilitate mutually beneficial partnerships once we learn what our members are willing to offer.
