What started as a small coffee shop on the corner of Main Street in downtown Longmont, Colorado in 2004, has since grown to multiple drive-thru and coffeehouse locations across the U.S - including beautiful Mission Viejo! From the beginning, Ziggi's Coffee mission has always been simple: To serve a convenient and superior cup of coffee with service customers can rely on.
On Monday, October 11th, several members from the MV Chamber, including Directors and the Daybreakers Networking Group Leadership Team, "mobbed" Ziggy's Coffee and loved the delicious coffee and food. Chamber Mobs afford a great opportunity to meet and network with fellow business owners and the community.
Now it's your turn, let's support our local businesses, large and small, as we strive to continue "making business happen" in the great city of Mission Viejo!
One amazing benefit for new members is to host a Ribbon Cutting. These events draw many Chamber members, community business owners and friends, and our City, County, State, and Federal governmental officials. In addition to showcasing one's business, there are networking opportunities galore!
Please join us in celebrating the Ribbon Cutting hosted by Project Eyecare Optometry on October 15th, starting at 4 pm. Please see the attached flyer for more details.
Note: If your business would like to host a Ribbon Cutting, please click here to review the guidelines and qualifications.
One of the best ways to support our fellow Chamber members is to drive business directly to them. "Chamber Mobs" are designed to do just that. We literally "mob" or plan an all-out Chamber visit, to specific businesses to purchase their goods.
Please join us as we "mob" one of our new members, Ziggi's Coffee, on October 11th. Please see the attached flyer for directions and other helpful information. See everyone there!

Each Tuesday, starting at 7:30 am, an average of nearly sixty (60) Chamber business owners and guests gather at the High Park Tap House for business networking and delicious hot food (Daybreakers Networking Breakfast). Once checked-in at registration, attendees are free to mix n' mingle and get to know their fellow Chamber members and visitors on a more personal basis.
Starting at 8:00 am sharp, the president (currently Jan Miller, owner of 21-13 Impact Graphics) calls the meeting to order with the "pledge of allegiance" and then introduces the leadership group. This leadership group is responsible for registration check-in, greeting new guests, scheduling of presenters, keeping the meeting on-time, and providing regular updates on closed business and the number of 1-to-1 appointments that take place.
After the leadership group is announced, then our guests are introduced, with second-time visitors given one minute to introduce themselves. Next, the winner of the previous week's "best commercial" will enjoy one minute to talk about their business. Then the "winner" now has the esteemed privileged to judge this week's "best commercial" and award the trophy. Now begins the really fun part!
In systematic order, each attendee now has the opportunity to introduce themselves, their business, and what type of referrals they are seeking - all within 30-seconds! (if you hear the "bell", you know your 30-seconds is up and it's time to pass the microphone). After the "commercials" are completed and the winner is awarded, then two presenters will take turns speaking for 10-minutes. This is an opportunity to get an in-depth look at our speakers and their businesses.
To conclude our networking breakfast, we share brief, positive expressions of closed-business and 1-to-1 visits with our fellow Chamber members. Then various Directors and the CEO will share pertinent information regarding the committees they represent and how this will impact the membership in a positive way. We also celebrate and give recognition to our many volunteers who work so hard on behalf of their fellow members.
In view of the foregoing, it's clear to see that the Mission Viejo Chamber is alive and active and provides their members and guests a weekly forum to gather and cultivate deeper business relationships, leading to referrals and closed business.
Please enjoy some photos of our "Daybreakers" breakfast below. Also, here are a few quotes from some of our members and visitors who attend:
"I love the energy and enthusiasm in the room! These people really work hard to refer business to each other".
"Every week I meet new business owners in addition to the long-time members. This is a great opportunity to learn more about their company and how I can refer them business".
"You'll be hard-pressed to find another networking group in South County that meets weekly, a group of dedicated men and women in business who truly care about you"!
"I appreciate the tireless volunteer efforts of the Daybreakers Leadership Team, our Ambassadors, and our Directors. Kudos to them for all they do on our behalf".
"I never knew just how many marketing and networking opportunities the Chamber offers to help grow my business. Now it's on me to take advantage of them - and attending the weekly Daybreakers Networking Breakfast is one of the best ways I can do this".
For individuals that have never been associated with a Chamber of Commerce or might have questions regarding the benefits of becoming an active member - the weekly Daybreakers Networking Breakfast is the perfect opportunity to observe first-hand how we make business happen in our community, yes it's the "front door to the Mission Viejo Chamber of Commerce"!

Nearly each month, the Mission Viejo Chamber schedules a Mixer at a member's business location. Crowds of Chamber members, their guests, and the local community came out last night to enjoy the festivities at Custom Comfort Mattress.
In an instance, the beautiful showroom floor of Custom Comfort Mattress was transformed into a fun-filled experience that brought the business community together with laughter, food, wine samples, opportunity drawings, and networking galore!
It was easy for all to observe that the Chamber and its members are vibrant, alive, and passionate about bringing the business community closer together!
