The Hennen’s have owned and operated a service station in Shakopee for 53 years and have always been members of the Chamber. Being a Chamber member and participating in their sponsored events is an opportunity to be involved in the community and support other Shakopee businesses. The networking and relationship building is important to the success of all of our businesses, especially the small business owner.
We have appreciated the support and involvement of the Chamber during the Hwy 101 construction project to help promote continued patronage of the businesses in this area. The signage, advertising, maps and Chamber bucks have all been helpful tools in keeping our customers informed.

The Shakopee Chamber offers me and my business multiple benefits. It gives me the opportunity to connect and network with other local business owners. The Shakopee chamber was an instrumental advocate at the State level to assist me in receiving salon licensure, in turn allowing me to provide gainful employment for my staff. The Shakopee Chamber has many insightful seminars and educational events that I find useful in making me a better community member and business owner.

The Shakopee Chamber has been a true community partner for Rahr Malting Company for many years. Unlike many of the retail members we are not able to reap the obvious membership benefits of exposure, advertising and increased sales. Instead they have been a steadfast advocate for us in developing the local and community support that has been critical in our success as an industry leader.
-Jesse L. Theis, Rahr Malting Co.
I am very grateful that I joined the Shakopee Chamber of Commerce. I have long wanted to become more active in the Shakopee Community, unfortunately I work about 70 hours a week, so I find little time. Joining the Chamber has been the start of me getting involved. I have met some of the other members and gained some new customers. I love the directory that the Chamber has put out, as I now have a reference of who to contact for whatever needs I have as a member of our wonderful Shakopee Community. I look forward to my business growing, with the help of the Chamber.
