We've been hearing so many stories about local collaboration among our business members, and we were excited to hear from The OKB barbecue sauce recently to let us know they are now featured in not one but TWO Local First Arizona member businesses: The Duck and Decanter and Caduceus Cellars.
"It is important for The OKB to be featured in local businesses as it clearly demonstrates that locally owned business owners do support one another and it provides an additional opportunity to grow and positively impact the local economy," says DeeDee Crook of The OKB. "Our experience has been that more and more consumers have a heightened awareness of the value and quality of locally produced products and services and are more conscious of how their buying decisions can positively impact the local community."
We certainly agree that individuals are becoming more aware of the impact of their spending, and are glad to see the success of our business members with other members!
"Being a member of LFA has opened many doors for The OKB with other locally owned businesses, continues DeeDee. "We proactively share with the business owners that we too are members of LFA and that doing business with other members of the organization is a priority for us. It is a win-win situation for everyone."
Make sure that you head on over to The Duck and Decanter or Caduceus soon to pick up some delicious Arizona-made BBQ sauce for your next grilling session!
