"I love being part of a renaissance. There’s so much energy around the architecture and the artists and the community and the new businesses. Cities in rebuilding mode offer amazing opportunities for small businesses"

- Jordan Dolson, Legacy Greens

The Kitchener BIA was a deciding factor in our opening in the region. The rollout of the patio program perfectly highlighted their determination to put small businesses first. Since opening, we've been supported, accommodated, and consulted regularly by the BIA.

- Brandon Rennie, The Civil

The Downtown Kitchener BIA is an awesome group of people who genuinely want to improve the downtown core area!
