Ribbon Cuttings are included at the Builder and higher levels and $200 for Partner level members.  Ribbon Cuttings and Groundbreakings are for businesses who have opened in the last six months, remodeled, moved locations, or are breaking ground on a new building.

You must be a current Chamber member in good standing for the Greenville-Pitt County Chamber of Commerce to engage in a ribbon cutting.

  • Day of the Week
    Monday-Thursday typically draw larger crowds than Fridays.

  • Time of the Day
    Early morning (9:00 - 10:00 AM), around lunch (11:00 AM - 1:00 PM), or toward the end of the day (3:00 - 4:30 PM) are the best times for higher attendance.

Once your ribbon cutting or groundbreaking is confirmed, it will be listed on our website, ChamberGram (e-newsletter), and emailed to the Chamber Ambassador group, and local elected officials.  It is then your duty to invite your family, friends, and colleagues.

On the day of your ribbon cutting, we typically like to follow the agenda below.  You can make changes to the agenda, but we encourage you to make us aware of what changes you would like well in advance of your scheduled ribbon cutting.  A Chamber staff member will arrive 15-30 minutes prior to the ribbon cutting with ribbon and scissors.

  • Welcome/Opening Remarks
    The Chamber's Chairman will welcome everyone and say a few words on behalf of the Chamber.

  • Elected Officials Remarks
    Any elected officials present who you would like to speak can say a few words.

  • Business/Organization Remarks
    You or a representative from your business speaks.

  • Photo Opportunity
    Because the ribbon cutting marks a very significant moment in the business' history, this is a great photo opportunity.

  • Ribbon Cutting / Refreshments
    Cut the ribbon and invite everyone in for a tour and light refreshments
