In June 2007 my brother Harry Karamardian and I signed a lucrative franchise deal to open 50 plus Sandella’s Flatbread Cafés throughout Los Angeles County. As we looked for our first location, we had no hesitation at all to start this concept in Hollywood. The main reason for this was due to what we had heard about the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. After meeting with one of the Chamber’s representatives, I was convinced of their commitment to support small businesses in the area. It has been over four months since we first opened, and I can’t express how many times the Hollywood Chamber staff has been here for us. They’ve been by our side, supporting us through their massive networking possibilities and many other services every day. Especially in today’s challenging economy, I encourage any small business owner to not think twice about joining the Hollywood Chamber.
