At the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry Annual Awards Luncheon last week, the Chamber awarded the Town of Gilbert the “Best City for Business” in recognition of its pro-business initiatives and ongoing economic development efforts.
The award, which was sponsored by Cox Communications, was accepted onstage at the event by Gilbert Mayor Jenn Daniels.
“We’re really excited and honored to be considered the best place in Arizona for people to do business,” Daniels said in an interview. “It says a lot about all the investment that we’ve made, both in people, processes, and also in a beautiful community.”
Those investments take various forms, Daniels said, but one crucial area of focus is providing additional resources for existing companies large and small, as well as resources designed for aspiring small business owners.
