Ribbon Cuttings/Grand Openings

The Chamber is here to help our members celebrate important business milestones like grand openings, new locations, expansions, and new product lines. 

The Chamber will visit your location for a ceremonial ribbon cutting and photo opportunity. We'll bring the red ribbon and the big gold scissors. The Chamber will share your photos and celebratory message in our e-newsletter, website, and social media.

We want your ribbon-cutting to be successful and make your team feel great about the event.

Ribbon Cutting Checklist

  • Select a date: Be aware of major holidays and coordinate with the Chamber well in advance to avoid conflicts with other Chamber events. We recommend a two to three week notice.

  • Invitations: Evites, flyers, formal/informal letters are just a few examples of how to get the word out. Your guest list can include staff, clients, business associates, neighboring businesses, volunteer associations, community leaders, elected officials and the media.
