Business of the Week Program

Our “Business of the Week” program is another opportunity to show our appreciation to Chamber members for supporting the Tullahoma Area Chamber of Commerce and investing in our community.

 Each week, the Chamber will select a business who has been a Chamber member for at least 2 years, who is chosen “Business of the Week”. The business is spotlighted for one business week (M-F). The “Business of the Week” receives: a personal visit from a Chamber representative, a "swag bag" filled with promotional items and coupons from other members, photo opportunities with an announcement here on our website, our weekly Member Monday newsletter, and our Facebook page.
