We love utilizing small businesses in our home state of Delaware when we do business! From buying our candles, to our coffee to doing our banking, we love knowing the faces that make up the business. Below we are sharing five of our favorite places in Dover that our team frequents often.
1. Central Delaware Chamber of Commerce.
We've only been a part of the CDCC since February, but we are very pleased with the connections and value being a part of the organization has brought! We attend the monthly mixers, special events and other networking opportunities they provide and we recently became a 5 Star Member. CDCC is a first class organization and the staff is very friendly. We love that every event is full of beneficial connections and learning from other business leaders. If you're an entrepreneur or have a small business, we highly recommend partnering with the CDCC!
2. 33 West.
This local restaurant is a favorite of ours not just because it's a short walk from our offices, but because of the fantastic food! Our staff has different tastes and they are able to accommodate everyone from burgers to salads. We often stop in during lunch meetings to grab a table near the window or for team outings we enjoy the hightop tables in the back. So no matter if you're looking for a nice date night spot or a quick lunch meeting location, 33 West is the place!
3. State Farm - Billy Reese
We love using Billy Reese State Farm for as many projects as we can. They are so quick to respond and always go above and beyond. Their agents are very knowledgeable and the whole team is extremely trustworthy. This branch always gives the best rate they can and truly look out for the individual or the business. We love that they know us by name and make us feel like family. If you need a good reliable insurer, we highly recommend State Farm - Billy Reese!
4. La Baguette
This bakery is SO yummy and they make all their breads fresh and on site! We love to treat ourselves with delicious macaroons, muffins, brioche or cruffins. Their customer service is also stellar and makes ordering trays for special events a breeze! The next time you're looking for a treat or need a pastry tray for a meeting, visit La Baguette in downtown Dover.
5. WSFS - Dover Mart Location
We have a high demand for banking transactions so we needed a bank that was going to be knowledgeable and fast-moving and we found that with WSFS (the Dover Mart Location). The employees are wonderful to work with and very reliable. We like that we are able to trust them with our business transactions and know they are looking out for us to make sure everything goes smoothly. They work specifically with small business as well as individuals, covering all your banking needs - check them out!
We hope you'll check out some of these local places! We love having offices in Dover and having access to these great small businesses.
