Grapevine Chamber of Commerce
"At Baylor Regional Medical Center at Grapevine, we have chosen to support the Grapevine Chamber of Commerce for a number of reasons. As one of the largest businesses in Grapevine, it is important for us to support the economic growth of Grapevine. Our partnership with the Chamber shows our commitment to the community. Additionally, we find it valuable to reach out to community members about our services through utilization of your Chamber Directory and Senior Service Resource Guide.
We encourage businesses to join the Grapevine Chamber of Commerce to receive the following valuable opportunities:
- Advertising at events
- Partnership with the Chamber and other local businesses to enhance each other's mission/growth
- Learn about the community your business serves
- Take part in sub-committees that represent your areas of interest
The Chamber has benefited the hospital through allowing us opportunities to promote new and exciting service offerings and developments at the hospital. Being a part of the Chamber correlates with our mission to serve all people through community service and it allows us to assist the community with health and wellness initiatives.

"Grapevine-Colleyville ISD is an active member of the Grapevine community. As your school district, it is our responsibility to prepare students with the skills, knowledge and abilities they will need to find success in their college or career pathways. Business and community partnerships are a key component to achieving that goal through mentoring and support of our students and programs.
Joining the Grapevine Chamber of Commerce provides invaluable connections with other local business leaders and organizations. This group of talented leaders actively supports fellow members and is always ready to provide encouragement, care and assistance. The Grapevine Chamber of Commerce is a true extension of the small-town atmosphere blended with progressive planning for the future that identifies this great community.
The membership of the Grapevine Chamber of Commerce is an asset in building business partnerships that are vital to the success of our student and our district. Through these partnerships, our students have the opportunity to experience real-world applications of concepts taught in the classrooms and to learn from those who are leaders in their fields. These opportunities enhance learning and further prepare students for success beyond graduation."

"Blagg Tire & Service has been a member of the Grapevine Chamber of Commerce since 1986, and we see great value in both the business relationships we have gained along with supporting our community. Being a member provides a grassroots approach to marketing your business and keeps you updated on issues within the community. You have to be involved to make your investment work harder for you. Just paying your dues will provide you with basic marketing through the Chamber’s website and business directory, but there are so many other ways to add value.
Involvement is the key. You get great exposure to the local businesses to provide great B2B efforts. Once you get the business relationships, their employees begin to support you as well.
A large portion of the Chamber members currently do business with Blagg Tire or one of our sister companies. We have developed many strong relationships which have grown into great leads to grow our business. We have been involved within the community and by working with other successful businesses, and we have been a part of the positive growth to the area, while maintaining the hometown feel. In addition, I have received many great mentoring relationships as a result of the Chamber."

"Recently, I had a position open up at my company, Allegiance Title of Grapevine. I searched to no avail for a candidate to fill my position, and I found listing my position on the Chamber website paid off. I received a response as a result of my Chamber posting. I interviewed the candidate and subsequently made the hire. The Chamber really works.
I also recently had an idea to start my own charity event. I came up with the an idea for 'A Cruise to the Cure' benefiting Joan Katz Cancer Center at All Saints Baylor, Fort Worth. I rented the large party boat on Lake Grapevine. Then I began searching for sponsors and vendors to help and donate. I was a little stressed out with only two months to plan and organize the event. Luckily, with the support of friends and vendors, the event was a HUGE success. We were able to raise almost $25,000, and we are planning to hold the event again next year."
