"As a family business, Tapatios Restaurante Mexicano is committed to providing great food, first-class service, and affordable prices. Advertising can sometimes be a challenge, but with the Chamber's Web site, opportunities to meet and network at events and the honor of Small Business of the Month Award, we can stretch our advertising dollars. Plus, we can keep in touch with the changes going on in the businesses around us! Because we are Chamber members, we can see and be seen online, in print and in person."

Ribbon Cutting/Ground Breaking Ceremony Assistance
Ribbon Cutting and Ground Breaking Events are an exclusive benefit of chamber membership and are reserved for members who meet one of the following criteria:
newly joined the Chamber
opened a new business
moved to a new location
celebrated new owners
completed/started major expansion or renovation
We are glad to be able to be a part of spotlighting your company and will assist in coordinating City and Chamber officials to attend. The Chamber will bring scissors (the Chamber also has nine gold shovels available) and camera; the ribbon is the responsibility of the company. Ribbon Cuttings are highlighted on Blog.LakelandChamber.com and in the Forum for Business Monthly. To schedule your ribbon cutting, please call (863) 688-8551, Ext 242.
Open House/Anniversary Celebration Tool Kit
This kit was designed for businesses who are celebrating a milestone anniversary or hosting an open house that might not necessarily fit into our Ribbon Cutting/Ground Breaking criteria. With information on who to invite, what types of activities to plan and which fellow members to contact for assistance, this resource is beneficial to even the seasoned event planner. At the company’s request, a senior Chamber official will attend and say a few words on the Chamber’s behalf. Instructions are also included for providing the Communications Division with pictures and details to include your celebration in the Chamber’s “Member News” feature. This tool kit is available for viewing in the Members Area.
