Kickoff for Business After Hours Spotlight on Restaurants


It is time to kick off 2018 Business After Hours!

The tradition over the past years has been to begin the year with the annual Business After Hours Spotlight on Restaurants!

This year’s Business After Hours Spotlight on Restaurants will be held on January 9, 2018 at the Ardmore Convention Center beginning at 5:00 pm. A fantastic way to start the year is to spotlight our member restaurants. Each restaurant who participates in the event will be provided a booth and can introduce attendees to new menu items or old favorites by providing samples of their food.  There is no cost for the booth space but we do ask you to bring enough food samples to serve around 50-60 people. 

The Ardmore Chamber of Commerce is always an advocate for local businesses.  The Chamber encourages everyone to shop and dine locally.  Ardmore has a wide variety of dining options from national chains to iconic local restaurants.  The benefits of spending dining dollars locally include:

·         Local spending generates lasting impact on the prosperity of local organizations and residents.

·         A study in Austin, Texas found that $100 spent at a local business produced an additional $45 worth of local economic activity.  It just makes sense to keep our business and money local.

·         Independent businesses employ more people directly per dollar of revenue. They are also the customers of local printers, accountants, wholesalers, farms, attorneys, etc.

·         Small businesses donate more than twice as much per sales dollar to local non-profits, events, and teams compared to big businesses.

All Chambers members are invited to attend this special Business After Hours Spotlight on Restaurants. 

Ardmore is an exciting community! There are many new ventures to come in 2018 so please stay invested and connected with our great city.   Remember: Shop Local, Dine Local.

If your restaurant would like to be a part of this Business After Hours Spotlight on Restaurants event, call the Chamber office by January 8th, at 580-223-7765 or by email to jauten@ardmore.org .
