WILLCOX — Locals learned what hospitality can do to give a business a needed boost.

Last Friday morning, the Willcox Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture and the City of Willcox hosted a training session focused solely on customer service.

Business owners and city department heads gathered to hear the class on hospitality that was put on by Local First Arizona.

“I think we’re going to keep doing things like this because people see the demand. It brings people together and I think that’s how you get everyone on the same track going in the same direction,” said Willcox Business Engagement Specialist Jordan Parrish.

Discussion points included responding to reviews, putting customers first, as well as stressing the topic of shopping local.

Stacy Faulkner, senior manager of rural development at Local First Arizona, was the instructor for the class. The boot camp was sponsored by Sulphur Springs Valley Electric Cooperative.

“The chamber has some great plans on the horizon,” Parrish said.

The next event the Willcox Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture is readying for is the Winter Mixer on March 4. The mixer is open to anyone interested in business, and will be located at the Valley Telecom.

Individuals interested in attending the mixer may RSVP at willcoxchamber.com.
