Last week SCORE Lancaster – Lebanon mentors Bill Beyer and Larry Keating stopped in the Visitor’s Center to visit with the Ladies of LOOP! That would be the Lancaster Office of Promotion and the dynamic team headed by Director Annie Weeks. She, along with Communications & Marketing Manager Amber Strazzo and Special Event Manager, Kayla Forgrave hosted a Small Business Open House throughout the day in the historic building on Penn Square. They wanted to meet with small businesses and learn more about them, and what they do, in order to promote them as the busy tourist season approached, and all year round.

The SCORE mentors were eager to learn more from our LOOP community partners to better serve the many SCORE Lancaster – Lebanon clients that we mentor throughout the City of Lancaster.

They include:

  • Calalloo Trinidadian Kitchen

  • Carr's Restaurant

  • Characters Pub

  • Foxduck

  • Harvest Moon Bagel Co.

  • Realm & Reason

  • Sophie Stargazer

  • Tellus360

  • The Fridge

  • Wendy Jo's Bakery

Anne Williams Director of Communications for Lancaster City Alliance, another strong SCORE Lancaster – Lebanon partner, also dedicated to promotion of the economic vitality of the City of Lancaster joined in the visit. Nurturing robust community relationships like these allows SCORE to offer the best assets and advice to our clients in the City of Lancaster. We look forward to following the events and updates from the LOOP team in the year ahead!
