  • If you are reading this, you must be celebrating the opening of a new business! Or perhaps, commencing an anniversary or the expansion/relocation of an existing business in Mesa or surrounding area. We are excited about your success and appreciate the opportunity to help you mark this momentous occasion! We hope the following information is helpful to you.

    When is the NEXT Ribbon Cutting?


    A ribbon cutting is the ceremonial opening of a brand-new or newly-renovated/relocated business that has opened within the last 12 months. It can inaugurate a business’s first day of business or it can take place weeks after the business’s soft opening. The Chamber will consider ribbon cutting requests for anniversary celebrations. A ribbon cutting is not an automatic event to mark a new membership.

    And, yes, you actually cut a ribbon! Each business decides where they would like to cut their ribbon. The most common location is across the main entrance of the building but it can also be stretched across another important location within the business, especially during inclement weather.

    Because the ribbon cutting marks a very significant moment in the business’s history, this is also a great photo opportunity. Each business chooses the group, or groups, of people they want to be assembled for their photos. Furthermore, the ribbon cutting 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.

    You must be a new or current Chamber member in good standing (including dues paid) for the Mesa Chamber to endorse and help coordinate your ribbon cutting.
