Ponchatoula Chamber of Commerce Marketing Committee
The historic City of Ponchatoula, founded in 1861 and well known as the Strawberry Capital of the World, has always been a thriving community with good marketing potential for all businesses. Although in close proximity to the major metropolitan cities of New Orleans and Baton Rouge, it has maintained its rural, easy-going life style and businesses have prospered. Ponchatoula also has a renown reputation for its many quality antique shops and proudly proclaims itself as America’s Antique City.
In September of 2001, the Ponchatoula Chamber of Commerce committed itself to continue the growth and prosperity of this community. At this time, they formed the Ponchatoula Chamber of Commerce Marketing Committee, chaired by Paul Pevey, owner of Paul’s Café. This committee is made up of local business people who together develop and implement a marketing plan designed to stimulate customer traffic, drive additional sales for all businesses, and demonstrate the uniqueness Ponchatoula has to offer for tourism, recreation and as a place to live.
The success of this committee is made possible by ongoing contributions from local businesses. Contributions are made on a monthly, quarterly and annual basis.
Recognizing that you have a stake in the prosperity of the city, we sincerely appreciate your assistance and support in this effort. If you would like to join the Chamber of Commerce Marketing Committee, please contact us.
