A Ribbon Cutting is a beneficial public relations display that brings attention to a Chamber Members business in the community. It makes people feel good and a part of something bigger than they are. It’s a public induction ceremony that provides a lot of positive press for everyone.
Ribbon cuttings are traditionally performed for business openings but you can use a big pair of scissors to cut a ribbon for any big milestone including:
- opening a new brand, location, or franchise
- a business anniversary
- a millionth customer designation (or some other number)
- moving into a new building
- reopening a business under new management
- reopening after a devastating event (like a fire)
- or any reason the business feels they need to present themselves to the community.
Chamber Members have the opportunity to get there business information or other promotional material in the hands of the public by submitting items for our Welcome Bags. These bags are distributed to new Businesses, and new Webster City Residents. Please feel free to drop items off to us, or we can come pick them up from you.
Enjoy Webster City's small town charm!
Our business community will greet you with a smile and exceed all your expectations!
