Biz Alliance launches website


Farragut Business Alliance has launched its website, www.farragutbusiness.com, and is inviting Farragut businesses to participate.

“I’m pleased with it,” FBA founder David Purvis said.

The website features a participating business list that can be searched by business name or category (i.e. “media,” “spas and salons,” “restaurants”). Each business also has a link to a Google maps page to help searchers find where the business is located.

Businesses can be listed at no charge, but only businesses within the town of Farragut will be listed.

Any business that lists itself on the FBA website also will receive 10 percent off advertising in farragutpress.

That discount can’t be combined with other specials.

The FBA website home page includes a calendar of events that will be filled with all types of community events, from FBA planned functions to business, church and Town events.

“We’d like to have anything [listed] that people would want to attend from outside the community or in the community,” Purvis said.

“We want this to be a resource for people to come to,” he added.


Purvis said other features will be added to the website as FBA expands, including a “Shop Farragut” section.

“As we explore expanding the Shop Farragut program [to year round], there’s already the idea that we would flag participants of Shop Farragut ... and a description of what they’re doing for Shop Farragut would pop up,” Purvis said.

Another expected feature could be e-mailed coupons for businesses participating in Shop Farragut, he added.

To list your business, visit www.farragutbusiness.com and click the red anchor icon on the home page.

The website was designed by Webteam, Inc.

Farragut Business Alliance was founded nearly two years ago to help promote Farragut businesses and serves as a type of merchant’s association. The FBA has sponsored a number of community events since then, including Taste of Farragut and Red, White & Blues. FBA partners with the Farragut, Farragut West Knox Chamber of Commerce and Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of East Tennessee.
