Testimonials

 

quote When Vickie and I took over the Waterfront Coffee Co in December of 2010 there were many, many ideas we had in mind. Many ideas have been implemented and others are still a work in process.  However the one thing we did not considered was how much of a benefit the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce could be to our business.  The Wednesday morning networking breakfast meetings have been a tremendous help and encouragement to our business. Although Vickie does not attend the weekly breakfast, as she is busy at the coffee shop, we both agree that my regular attendance has brought to our coffee shop both new friends and new customers. The Chamber has also allowed us to better connect with the community and other local businesses.  We greatly appreciate the support and relationships that have come about as a direct result of our involvement with the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce. quote

 

— Steve Balas, Waterfront Coffee Company, Owner and Chamber Member

 

quote The chamber has been so supportive and helpful during my start-up year and now as I continue to grow. I think the value in being a member far exceeds the membership dues, even during these times when we need to carefully review our spending. You are a big part of what makes it special and you deserve a standing ovation for your tireless efforts. Thank you!!

Being a member of the Edmonds Chamber of Commerce has been very instrumental in helping my business grow and succeed. From the first friendly call I received welcoming me as a new member I felt I ‘belonged’ in the Edmonds community. I am proud to be an important part of that unique sense of community that makes Edmonds so special. Thank you Edmonds for your support and friendship!  quote
