Williamson, Inc. is seeing an increase in ribbon cuttings that shows business in Williamson County is thriving in a post-pandemic economy. Ribbon cuttings peaked in 2019 with a total of seventy-six, but with this year’s Q1 consisting of twenty-two cuttings, 2022 may be the best year yet. The Chamber alone held nine ceremonies in March, making this the best March they’ve ever seen, with the second being eight ceremonies in March of 2017.
“It’s always exciting to celebrate the grand opening of a new business or an expansion of an existing business. Williamson County continues to thrive, and we are honored to be able to support our business community for continued prosperity,” said Bryan Doleshel, Chief Community Development Officer for Williamson, Inc. The organization prides itself on being the premier source for business resources and support in Williamson County and setting a culture for its membership that fosters community and prosperity. An example of this is shown by the businesses that offer free services to welcome and celebrate these ceremonies. The list of offerings spans across a multitude of goods and services, including a complimentary banner from Fast Signs, cookie cake from Sugar Drop, table and linen from Southern Events, a platter of sliders from Menu Maker catering and more.
