Why I joined the Chamber
“As Tallahassee’s oldest bakery, our company has lots of name recognition with a solid and loyal customer base. We advertise to make our business known to newcomers in the area, but we feel that our membership in the Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce is a valuable part of doing business in Tallahassee. We have gained additional customers through our Chamber contacts and made many friends in the business community. Our membership in the Chamber has enabled us to meet and network with business people that we would not encounter in our usual day-to-day operations. This enables us to broaden our perspective on the nature of not only our business operations, but in being members of the general community of businesses that make up our city. In our many years of Chamber membership, we have been able to participate in conferences, workshops, seminars and other events that have helped our business to grow and improve through many connections with successful business people in all types of businesses. I would highly recommend membership in the Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce regardless of business type whether retail, service or professional. Joining the Chamber will help you get involved and make connections that will improve your business and the community we live in. ”
