WRENTHAM — Town Administrator Kevin Sweet is pleased to announce the creation of a new effort that will help to strengthen and unify Wrentham-based businesses and business owners.
The newly-formed Wrentham Business Collaborative will focus on promoting local businesses by giving them a platform on which they can communicate and work together. Owners can use the organization to raise issues, propose solutions and share a unified voice.
The collaborative is a new organization that arose out of a focus group discussion conducted by the Town of Wrentham. Businesses that participated in the focus group expressed their desire for collaboration and a unified message in order to address problems or create solutions for the Town. The WBC is supported by the Wrentham Economic Development Commission.
As for now, meetings will be conducted remotely as COVID-19 restrictions remain in place. The collaborative is encouraging Wrentham businesses who wish to support and enter into the collaborative to reach out to Rachel Benson, Director of Planning and Economic Development, at 508-384-5400, ext. 5486.
“This is a great opportunity for Wrentham businesses to support each other and the Town itself,” Town Administrator Sweet said. “As COVID-19 continues to adversely impact small business owners, we’re proud to offer our local businesses this chance to collaborate and stick together during these tough times.”
The Town has also set up a Facebook group for participating businesses to further interact and collaborate with each other.
