 Chautauqua County Chamber of Commerce Restaurant Week is October 20 – 26 this year.  Now in its second year, we hope it will inspire residents and visitors alike to try out a variety of local restaurants.  Chamber member restaurants are invited to participate and to be included in our Restaurant Week marketing plans.  All participating restaurants will be highlighted on the Chamber web site and will be listed on the Facebook page CHQrestWeek, as well as in print advertising.

Each participating restaurant agrees to offer special pricing or special dishes during that week.  If you own or operate a restaurant in Chautauqua County we welcome your participation.  Call the Chamber today at 484-1101 or 366-6200 to get more information and to find out how you can participate in Restaurant Week.

Driving foot traffic into local businesses is part of the Chamber’s Five Point Focus.  We know that is an important key to success and profitability and we continue to seek ways to help our members grow.
