2015 Fennimore Business Walk
A “Business Walk” is a day dedicated to learning more about local businesses through interviews with business owners. Fennimore’s second Business Walk was held in August 2015. Business Walk is a business retention project where teams of volunteers (walkers) meet face to face with business owners, managers and leaders of the community. Volunteers interested in serving on the visiting teams are asked to contact the Promotions Coordinator’s office.
The primary goals of the walk are:
- To understand the issues facing your business community.
- To build working relationships between decision makers and local businesses.
- To celebrate and promote your local businesses.
- To provide local businesses with educational resources.
The 2015 Fennimore Business Walk was a collaboration of Fennimore Area Chamber of Commerce, the Fennimore Industrial and Economic Development Corporation, the City of Fennimore and the University of Wisconsin Extension-Grant County. Read the 2015 Business Walks Report.
