Local First Members Mix it up at Scramble This Month

scramble The local food scene in Arizona is collaborative. More and more we are seeing restaurants and chefs alike preferring to place produce and meat orders with local farmers and ranchers here in the state. And it's no wonder with 15,000 farms and ranches in Arizona, there's bountiful opportunities for local growth.

IMG_5559One such local restaurant utilizing Arizona grown foods is Scramble, a Breakfast Joint with locations in Scottsdale and Phoenix. Scramble prides itself on using the freshest ingredients from local farmers and vendors whenever possible. As they put it, "So instead of your eggs being delivered across the country in a truck, they are literally coming from across town." By supporting local farms, like Hickman Family FarmsScramble is helping to recirculate up to four times more money back into our economy. Both breakfast and lunch are served all day, including delicious omelettes, breakfast burritos, and vegan breakfast options too!

Recently, Scramble hosted our February Lunch mixer at their newest location in Scottsdale. Stepping inside, your mood is sure to be brightened even before you've tasted their incredible dishes. Local First members poured in from across the Valley to lunch and network together in the brightly colored open space. Meals were delivered just minutes after we had ordered, (A service that any business owner on a tight schedule can appreciate!).

IMG_5558As we made our way around the room for member introductions, we had quite a few new lunch mixer attendees that chose to stay long after we left to discuss how they can work together. One trio in particular was Margo Brown of Wave Productivity, Jacqueline Destremps of Another Hand Advantage, and Giselle Aguiar of AZ Social Media Wiz. Both Giselle and Jacqueline specialize in promotion and marketing for businesses and use each other as referrals, depending on the client's needs.

Margo specializes in developing organizational habits to increase productivity in the workplace and at home. Jacqueline and Giselle utilize Margo's talents when a client is in need of developing an appropriate schedule for promotion and social media. The three have become more successful in their own business all while collaborating to increase each other's client base as well!

We want to thank our host, Scramble, for a delicious and fresh meal as well as great service. Be sure to check our events calendar soon for April and May's lunch mixer spots.

We look forward to lunching locally with you!
