"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. When I joined the Bedford Chamber, I immediately realized, this is one of the best decisions I made for my business. I have so enjoyed getting to see what the Bedford Chamber does for the area and the small businesses in Bedford County. I am so impressed with the community of members and the value you provide for these events. Networking is so key to the growth of small business and the Bedford Chamber is such a vital connection to make it happen."
