Each year, the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce honors a large and small business as Members of the Year. Recipients of these awards are members that go above and beyond to support the Chamber and its mission. Congratulations to Rockne’s and Hofbrauhaus Cleveland, on being awarded the 2018 Members of the Year! The awards were presented at our Holiday Social on November 8th. Be sure to congratulate these members the next time you see them!
Hofbrauhaus Cleveland—2018 Large Business Member of the Year
Hofbrauhaus Cleveland joined the Chamber in 2017 and has been an integral part of the success of our events, Taste of Brooklyn and Picnic in the Park. Not only have they sponsored both events for the past 2 years, but Hofbrauhaus also participated as food vendors for each event. Andi Udris, co-owner of Hofbrauhaus, has always gone above and beyond to make sure that both events ran smoothly and were a success for the Chamber. He has donated tables, umbrellas, food, beer, countless volunteer hours, just to name a few! Andi has been heavily involved in the planning and design of our events and is always willing to go the extra mile whenever it is asked of him. The Brooklyn Chamber and community are lucky to have Andi and Hofbrauhaus as such supportive partners!
Rockne’s – 2018 Small Business Member of the Year
Rockne’s has been an active Chamber member since 2003. Amy Sabelli, Rockne’s General Manager, has volunteered countless hours serving on our Board of Directors, volunteering time at our events, and participating in planning Picnic in the Park and Taste of Brooklyn. Rockne’s has been a dedicated food vendor for Taste of Brooklyn since the event started 13 years ago! They have also donated gift cards, sponsored our events, hosted socials, and catered luncheons. Amy and the staff at Rockne’s have been extremely supportive of the Chamber’s mission and in making our events a success. They are a true asset for both the Chamber and the Brooklyn community!
