SOUTH ORANGE, NJ – The South Orange Chamber of Commerce held a successful networking event this week at Papillon 25 Restaurant at 25 Valley Street.
Businesspeople from South Orange, Maplewood, Millburn, Springfield, Morristown and beyond came together to make new connections and see some old friends.
Yanick Ranieri, owner and chef of Papillon 25, mingled with the crowd and made sure the delicious food kept coming.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for some people from outside of the area to come and see not only what our restaurant is like, but what South Orange is like,” Ranieri said.
South Orange Chamber of Commerce President, Kenny Cucchia, was pleased with the turnout as well as the venue.
“This is exactly what we were hoping for,” Cucchia said. “We have a great crowd tonight and you can see people exchanging business cards and learning about each other. This is what a networking event is supposed to look like.”
