The Rosenberg Development Corporation (RDC) will hold its annual Business Appreciation Reception Thursday, August 25, 2011, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Rosenberg Civic Center, 3825 Highway 36 South. The RDC is partnering with the Central Fort Bend Chamber Alliance (CFBCA) to produce the annual event, designed to highlight local enterprises, provide valuable business resources, and encourage networking among local business and business resources.
The event is intended to help show appreciation to Rosenberg businesses, provide business owners with information and resources to grow their business, and answer questions for budding business owners about the process of starting a new business. The RDC and Chamber encourage anyone involved in the local business community to attend.
The RDC and Chamber are looking to build on the momentum gained last year when the annual reception underwent a “makeover” of sorts, resulting in record attendance and valuable exposure for participants. “We had a great event last year, with a lot of participation from the local business community,” said Matt Fielder, Rosenberg Economic Development Director. “We’re looking forward to making it even bigger and better.”
The 2011 event will include free samples of some of the finest food in Rosenberg from restaurants such as Another Time Soda Fountain, Buffalo Wild Wings, Chili’s, Gringo’s, La Casona Mexican Restaurant, McAlister’s Deli, Nestle Toll House, Sabina’s Taqueria, Schulze’s Texas Bar-B-Que and Texas Roadhouse.
Exhibitors will include: American Red Cross, Central Fort Bend Chamber Alliance, CFBCA Hispanic Business Division, CFBCA Young Professionals Division, Conrad N. Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management, Rosenberg Development Corporation (RDC), Rosenberg Parks and Recreation Department, Rosenberg Planning Department, Texana Center, Texas State Technical College, University of Houston Small Business Development Center, the West Fort Bend Management District and Workforce Solutions.
Limited opportunities for restaurants remain. For more information, contact Angie Sanders, CFBCA, at 281-342-5464 ext. 203, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The RDC was established through public referendum in 1995 and is allocated one-half cent of the City of Rosenberg’s sales tax proceeds to invest in projects that promote or develop new or expanding business, create jobs, and improve the quality of life in the community. The RDC Board of Directors meets on the second Thursday of each month at the Rosenberg Civic Center. The public is encouraged to attend these meetings.
