"Servpro has been a member of the Bedford Area Chamber of Commerce for many years now and knows without a doubt how hard the employees and fellow Chamber members work to bring us business. Being a member of the Chamber is not only about getting business, but developing relationships with other business owners so you can refer business to them as well.”
“As a business owner, I would have to say that joining the Bedford Chamber is one of the fastest ways to become recognized locally.
