From Our Members

Emily Stoneroad
Operating Partner and General Manager, O’Charleys Restaurant of North Charleston
As an operating partner and general manager for O’Charleys Restaurant of North Charleston, the Southeastern Chamber of Commerce has given me an opportunity to grow my business and create visibility for my restaurant in the local community. It has also allowed me to meet with other business owners and professionals to network and exchange ideas. The help we give each other is invaluable. The chamber offers so many wonderful events that get me in front of the community and that help me to grow my restaurant. I am a member of Hospitality Council as well. Being a member of the Southeastern Chamber is definitely something every business owner should be a part of.

Steven Rhoads
General Manager & Operating Partner Fred Anderson Toyota
"Since joining the Southeastern Chamber we have experienced an awesome group of business leaders that are serious about being a true regional connector. I have had the opportunities to hit the ground running by promoting the dealership locally, and regionally, which has impacted our sales and awareness. We even hosted a real cool event in the showroom that engaged the staff, and finally got to meet my business neighbors and form important relationships. Such a cool Chamber! Definitely non-traditional!"
