Chamber Directory up-and-coming


Farragut West Knox Chamber of Commerce and farragutpress are working to print the Chamber’s 2010 Directory, a listing of all Chamber members.

“We are excited about our new directory that is being done by the farragutpress, and one of the things we are doing is putting anchors by all Farragut businesses so they can be differentiated from Knox County and other areas,” Chamber president and CEO Bettye Sisco said.

Sisco said she hoped to have work on the Directory completed by mid-December, with distribution being after the first of the year.

“They will be distributed through the farragutpress, as well as be available at the office,” Sisco said. Distribution is more than 16,000 with the newspaper, she added, plus Directories that are handed out to new Chamber members and new residents to the area.

“It is a handy, very user-friendly size that fits easily in the car or office,” Sisco said of the new format of the Directory, a small booklet.


Sisco said the shelf life of the Directory also was important as people keep the Directory and use it as a reference year-round.

All Chamber members receive a free listing in the Directory, and will be listed both categorically and alphabetically for easy searching, but Sisco said businesses that advertised saw great returns.

“A definite benefit of using an ad is the complete distribution of it, as well as the fact it goes into relocation packages for people who are moving into the area.

“And all new members will get them,” Sisco said.

Chamber Enterprise members, who go above and beyond their normal Chamber donation, get special recognition in the Directory.

“I wouldn’t want to miss the opportunity to advertise in the Chamber Directory,” Chamber member and State Farm agent Cindy Doyle said.

“This is an active Chamber, the circulation is to the people I want to get to know, and it has been of tremendous value to me,” she added.

Another Chamber member, Kerry McDuffie of Superior Carpet and Rug Cleaning, agreed.

“It’s very informative.”

“It gets you in touch with quality people who are concerned with staying in touch with local companies, and who support the local community,” he said.

Sisco asked that Chamber members contact the Chamber to ensure their listing information is up-to-date before the Directory is printed.

The Chamber Directory also can be found on-line, at www.farragutchamber.com, where the listings are updated weekly.
