There is something for everyone in Germantown, and it's up to the Chamber to make sure things stay that way. Perhaps one of the reasons businesses are so successful is the hard work on the part of the Chamber.
There is something for everyone in Germantown and for thirty five years the Germantown Area Chamber of Commerce has worked to make sure things stay that way.
Germantown is a very desirable place to live. With the lowest crime rate in Tennessee, some of the highest school test scores in the nation, and good medical facilities, Germantown sets the standard for quality of living and businesses here are no exception.
Businesses in Germantown have a 90 percent success rate and business owners that settle in Germantown are surprised at the enthusiasm with which they are met. Once businesses get established here they are more than pleased with the city. And with Germantown's low crime rate, business owners don't have to worry about their safety or that of their customers.
Perhaps one of the reasons businesses are so successful is the hard work on the part of the Chamber.
The Chamber has numerous programs in place that help member businesses thrive. Being a member is the fastest way for businesses to meet the largest number of people, which is especially beneficial to client-based organizations. Chamber members also enjoy reduced advertising rates and inexpensive booth space at the Chamber-sponsored Business Expo held every April. One day at the Expo exposes businesses to three to four thousand people. The Chamber also offers lectures and seminars for small-business owners, as well as holding ribbon cuttings and other attention-getting events for new businesses.
In addition to making sure Germantown's businesses are healthy and prosperous, The Chamber also keeps a watchful eye on the city's development and upcoming needs. One of the Chamber's focuses for future developments is the increase in the number of home-based businesses.
Germantown has earned a reputation not only in this area, but also all over the Mid-South, as one of the safest and most beautiful places to live and work. The commitment to excellence is reflected in all manner of commerce, from restaurants to banks to retail stores.
The Germantown Area Chamber of Commerce has been a vital asset to Germantown and its growth and prosperity for the past 30 years, and looks forward to many more to come.
