CherryBiz to Host Discussion of Manor Rd. IBIZ District, May 5

hello Manor Rd. hello Manor Rd! Design by Caitlin Alexander Illustrations.The Cherrywood Business Council (CherryBiz) will host a discussion about creating an IBIZ District on Manor Rd. at our monthly happy hour on May 5th. The IBIZ Districts are a program of the Austin Independent Business Alliance (AIBA), which promotes, supports, and protects locally owned business in the city. Manor Road is prime for becoming an IBIZ District because the great majority of the popular businesses on it are locally owned.

The IBIZ District program highlights business districts throughout Austin that are 75% or more locally owned. Benefits of becoming an IBIZ District include marketing the district and business district support.

Some other benefits are marketing the district on AustinIBIZ.com (which is currently being revamped); social media marketing; marketing in the Guide to IBIZ Districts (30,000 copies are distributed throughout Austin, including the Visitors Center and downtown hotels); and district support for business related issues such as parking, crime, graffiti, etc.

Join us on May 5th at the Fannie Mae Stuart Conservatory (1902 East 22nd St., Austin, TX 78722) to talk with IBIZ District Director Rebekka Adams and Manor Rd. business owners and reps about the potential benefits of a Manor Road District, and discuss what steps are needed to make it a reality.

The Cherrywood Business Council (CherryBiz) is dedicated to creating networking and educational opportunities for neighborhood-based businesses. It is expanding to include is all businesses based in the 78722 zip code. Annual membership dues are $25.
