NEWS RELEASE

Featured Businesses of the Month

The City of Santa Maria and Santa Maria Valley Chamber of Commerce are partnering to highlight different businesses in the City of Santa Maria through their Santa Maria Featured Businesses program. This program gives recognition to businesses who have been in the community for a significant amount of time, and/or providing unique or significant contributions to our community. Not only does this give valuable exposure to these local businesses, it also reminds our community of the unique, diverse and long-standing businesses we are fortunate to have in Santa Maria.
 
The focus for the next 12 months will be on major manufacturers and women-owned businesses in the City. Each month, one business from each of these two categories will be recognized during the City Council meeting and publicized by the City and the Chamber.
