PASO ROBLES — The Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce will conduct its first-ever Business Walk from 10 to 11 a.m. on Nov. 8. Throughout the United States, Chambers have utilized this tool as a way to interact with business owners and managers to collect feedback.
“Though immediate solutions can’t be guaranteed, conducting a Business Walk will allow us to understand the current status and needs of our local business community,” says Gina Fitzpatrick, President/CEO of the Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center. “This information will then help to establish resources that ensure a prosperous business climate.”
The Chamber, along with more than 90 volunteers, intends to visit 400 businesses. Their purpose? To discuss the state of business in our community. Asking just a few questions, the volunteers will help the Chamber and the City of Paso Robles gather data on the state of business and its needs.
This is just one of many initiatives the Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce Economic Development Department has been developing for businesses, investors, and residents. Other efforts include creation of the Business and Entrepreneurial Success Team (BEST), preparation of business Quick Start Guides, and a new business start-up guide. A relocation guide and new economic development website will be available this fall.
The Chamber seeks volunteers to assist with the Business Walk. For more information about the Business Walk, contact the Chamber at 805-238-0506 or visit their website www.pasorobleschamber.com/businesswalk.
