NICEVILLE, Fla — The Niceville Valparaiso, Destin, and Fort Walton Beach chambers of commerce are proud to announce the ‘Chamber Partnership COVID Compliant Business Program’.
This complimentary program will highlight the extraordinary commitment a business puts forth in providing a safe environment for their guests and customers through enhanced safety protocols and training.
“Consumer confidence has never been as important as it is now within our business community. In this ever-changing environment, it makes sense to utilize the power of our local Chambers to collectively establish a program that will help consumers feel comfortable and safe while supporting local businesses.” said Tricia Brunson, President/CEO, Niceville Valparaiso Chamber of Commerce.
Modeled after The Seal of Commitment program designed by the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association, The COVID Compliant Business Program is open to all nonRestaurant/Lodging businesses in Okaloosa County. A business does not need to be a member of one of the participating Chambers to be inspected.
Interested businesses who want to show our community that they are taking COVID precautions seriously will be eligible for a complimentary inspection covering all of the important factors in the CDC Business Guidelines.
Upon approval, the business will receive a Chamber Partnership COVID Compliant Business decal to display.
The company name will also be listed on each chamber website as a COVID compliant company.
“There is no charge for the inspection. The mission at each Chamber of Commerce is to promote the importance of doing business here in Okaloosa County. Aside from the free inspection and associated designation, the promotion of a COVID Certified Business, might be a market differentiator that could be more dollars in positive marketing” Ted Corcoran, President/CEO Greater Fort Walton Beach Chamber of Commerce.
