Ribbon Cuttings

A Chamber of Commerce Event for Members


A ribbon cutting is recognition of your business’s grand opening, changing its name, or highlighting major changes such as new management, remodeling, or a major expansion of facilities or services. A ribbon cutting also lets Chamber members know about your business and provides an opportunity to become acquainted with your services. As a service to members, the Chamber offers the Ribbon Cutting Program for a small, partially refundable fee. This is our way of welcoming you to the Elk Grove business community or recognizing your major changes. For in home businesses a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony can be held at the Chamber office.
