We all eat lunch, and many of us proactively network to grow friendships and find new business. A Lunch Mob combines the two and is typically much less time consuming to plan and organize than a cash mob.
So, what is a Lunch Mob?
Simply put, a lunch mob is a group of people meeting at a local restaurant and each person paying for their own meal in order to support a local business. A lunch mob can easily be combined with other activities such as a social gathering, professional or dating speed networking or as a stop on a larger cash mob event.
Chamber of Commerce Lunch Mob
As a chamber event, a lunch mob is an informal lunch gathering at a member business. Those in attendance pay for their own meal. The benefits to a chamber of commerce because it’s a fun activity that focusses on connecting members without a lot of the formality of an evening networking event.
It’s also a boost to the local business that gets a lunchtime rush thanks to the chamber’s efforts. It may also introduce new customers to the restaurant. Some member businesses will offer specials just for the group.
Combined with speed networking, chamber members can get to know each other and still have time for a nice meal.
