Ribbon Cutting/Grand Opening/Anniversary Events

The Douglas County EDC is always eager to welcome new businesses to the area, or to celebrate the expansion of existing businesses. The EDC and it's Chamber members/Ambassadors are here to serve you in a supporting role for the event. This celebration is the time to showcase what your business has to offer our community.

Because the ribbon cutting marks a very significant moment in the business’ history, this is also a great photo opportunity. The ceremony gives the business owner or manager a chance to say a few words to those gathered. Business owners have used this time to publicly thank their financial backers, their employees, their friends and family, and/or their business partners. They also take the opportunity to talk about what their business does.
