Norcross, GA- April 29, 2014- City of Norcross business leaders packed the city’s Community Center this morning for a “thank you” breakfast by city leaders. “You already invest in us, now let us invest in you!”, was part of the Breakfast platform.

According to Rusty Warner, of the Economic Development Department, “This is one time a year when businesses of all facets, meet potential customers, potential places they can buy services for their company, and meet everlasting business partners. I am always pleased to introduce one business to another! I get so much good feedback and truly believe the momentum started here today, energizes a business.”

Camaraderie was themed all around the room. A free, year-old program, “City First”, took center attention as a way to forge alliances within the Norcross community while at the same time keeping Norcross dollars, in Norcross.

Additionally, two existing business tax programs were re-introduced, the Opportunity Zone and Less Developed Census Tract. Both programs give business tax incentives based on an amount of new hires, and were heavily examined by attendees on four-foot charts.

Norcross mayor, Bucky Johnson, the entire city council and city management staff were all in attendance and eager to greet participants. Mayor Johnson was the perfect host, thanking all businesses for their attendance and their solid allegiance to Norcross. Much welcomed, State Representatives Pedro “Pete” Marin and Tom Rice were also in attendance, bringing governmental updates and encouragement to the attendees.

Special “Invitees” included Gas South, Norcross DDA, S.C.O.R.E. and Southwest Gwinnett Chamber. Invitees were recruited based on a special contributory skill or item, beneficial to the continued success of a Norcross business.

A very full building with an equally full agenda, and an air of excited anticipation.

Breakfast participants say they adjust their calendars around this event.

Continued success in Norcross, today.
