May’s Lunch Mixer took us over to Lox, Stock & Bagel where owner Michelle Rosenbloom and her team serve up some fantastically fresh homemade bagels daily. For 20 years, Michelle has been in the bagel business and always has a big smile on her face to greet new and old friends that stop in for a bite of that irresistible taste. We couldn’t resist the opportunity to have Lox, Stock & Bagel host this month as soon as we heard Michelle say, “We offer 28 bagel varieties and 18 cream cheese flavors.” We were there in a flash!
Inside the cozy bagel shop, Local First members gathered together with their savory sandwiches & salads meeting and greeting with neighbors. We also took a few of our brand new Phoenix Small Wonders maps to show our members too! Moving around the room we had a wide array of industries and professionals, even some new faces, like VIP Taxi.
Walking around after introductions, it was amazing to see the amount of collaboration generating between our amazing business entrepreneurs. Swapping business cards and trading ideas, members like Jeremy from Community Tire Pro’s and Auto Repair left with a few more leads!
We thank Lox, Stock & Bagel for a deliciously satisfying lunch and conversation! Next time you are thinking saying, "Thanks," to a client or your spouse, a nice batch of bagels says it all! More bagel ideas here: Lox, Stock & Bagel Catering
If you haven’t been to a lunch mixer before, they are great casual networking get-togethers we started to include members that may not be able to attend our evening mixers. Held the first Wednesday of every month, we travel to different areas around the valley meeting great people and eating delicious food along the way.
