Kimball business association holding membership drive

Gina Barker, The Park Record

The Kimball Junction Business Association is calling on businesses in their neck of the woods to join the organization. In existence for little more than a year, the association which hails itself as a place for "community information sharing and business networking" serves as a place for Kimball Junction businesses to set goals and drive traffic to the area.

And now the organization is hoping to expand the voices contributing to those goals. Monthly meetings discuss topics ranging from cross promotion with nearby resorts to a recent and major project the group is tackling, better signage to draw new visitors into the area, an attempt to highlight the restaurants, dining and shopping available.

"There are quite a few businesses out here," said Teresa Wharton, an active member of the organization, "from professional services, to medical to legal to dental.

"We’re hoping to get as many members as possible, to get a unified voice so that we can participate on government level."

Any business is invited to attend and members will receive a handful of benefits including getting regular updates, receiving co-marketing opportunities and being added to the alliance directory. Annual fees are $50 for Kimball Junction businesses and associate members are also encouraged to join, businesses that may have a vested interest in the area. If interested businesses sign up before in the coming summer months, they can receive a $25 credit to a Park City Chamber/Bureau event.
