“After the transportation referendum last summer, we must continue the much needed conversation about transportation here in South Fulton,” Dominique Huff, SFBC Director said. “We are starting out the conversation featuring MARTA and how it impacts how we do business here in South Fulton.”
The South Fulton Business Coalition serves all of Fulton County south of the City of Atlanta including the unincorporated area. SFBC considers itself a business and community development organization that seeks to connect both business and residents of South Fulton. SFBC focuses on entrepreneurs, microenterprises and small businesses. We seek to promote, develop and enhance the Greater South Fulton community.
On Friday, March 22, 2013, the SFBC will hold its first business networking after dark event at the Signature Sports Bar and Grill in Union City. The event takes place from 6:30pm to 9:00pm. Admission is FREE with a business card or marketing material. Free food will be given away from 8:00pm to 9:00pm, attendees must arrive by 7:15pm to be eligible. The establishment is located at 6137 Roosevelt Highway in Union City.
“We are bringing back the Sign Off Fridays concept as launched by the Tenth Amendment Media Group. This event is now being coordinated and managed by the SFBC,” Huff said. “We want to make sure that we are all over South Fulton and not concentrated within one area.”
The SFBC is launching several initiatives to support the business community including a shop local campaign, business networking groups and forums to keep business owners in the know about issues facing the community. For more information, visit them online at www.southfultonbusiness.com.
