WAYNE, NJ – This month’s Tri-County Chamber of Commerce (TCCC) networking meeting held at the Bahama Breeze restaurant in Wayne was well-attended and continued a trend of growth at the meetings that reflects the growing number of businesses coming to Wayne.
Recently, Moody’s rated Wayne Township’s Credit as a AAA - their highest rating. According to Moody’s, one of the reasons for this was the “mean family income of township residents is 186.4% higher than the US median level.” A higher level of income generally means a higher level of spending and that draws businesses like honey draws bears.
Wayne’s business community continues to respond to both a favorable business climate as well as a growing population.
Jamie Dykes, the President of the TCCC has seen this growth through its memberships. “Our membership is on a steep incline right now and that’s reflective of what’s going on in the greater Wayne area,” said Dykes.
The TCCC began as the Wayne Chamber of Commerce and changed its name years ago since it was drawing businesses from nearby towns in Morris and Essex Counties. Still the chamber is very Wayne-centric. “About 70% of our membership are Wayne-based businesses,” said Dykes.
There were about twenty-five different businesses represented at the networking luncheon today including a local hotel, payroll company, medical billing, human resource consulting, real estate, banking, social media marketing and more.
Next month’s TCCC meeting is their annual holiday luncheon and toy drive which will be held at the Preakness Hills Country Club on December 5th. For more information, visit: http://cca.tricounty.org/EvtListing.aspx?dbid2=NJTCnty&evtid=16237&class=B
