Find the businesses and resources you need with the Chamber

Whether you’re looking for a great place to eat, a local service industry, or some other type of local business, you can generally find it in the Chamber’s online Business Directory. The Business Directory is one of the main ways the Chamber promotes support for local businesses, as we provide an easy to access and searchable list online database.

Each day the Chamber’s Business Directory refers people more than 5,470 times to local businesses and organizations. Here’s an example of how it works. A person searching the category of “restaurants” in our online database will find a list of dozens of restaurants from all over Chautauqua County. From there it’s easy to access each businesses information directly, including their address, website, phone number, and social media links. There’s also a Google map embedded in the web page that shows where all those restaurants are located, and you can zoom in on a particular community to find some options.

Our database features some standard topical groups such as Community & Non-Profit, Finance & Insurance, Shopping & Specialty Retail, and more, that can help you drill down into a more specific search. It also includes a robust list of more detailed categories. Or if you don’t know what category to look for, you can enter your own keyword into the search box and see what comes up. With so much information in the system, you are certain to find something that will fit your needs or interests.

This easy-to-use online tool is not just designed for customers seeking a particular type of business or organization. It can also be used by businesses that may be looking for a particular type of vendor. Looking for educational or training organizations? We have those. Looking for internet providers? We’ve got them in our database. Looking for manufacturers? They’re listed in the Chamber’s Business Directory. With information about more than 900 businesses throughout Chautauqua County, the Chamber is one of the best resources for finding local organizations of all types.

If your business or organization is not a member of the Chamber and you want to be included, just call us to find out more about membership. If you are already a Chamber member and haven’t updated your online categories or business description recently, just login to our Members Only portal and make your changes. The Chamber’s Business Directory is one of the best ways for others to find your business.

The Chamber’s online Business Directory helps us fulfill our mission to build vital connections, provide professional resources, and champion our local businesses in Chautauqua County.


The Chautauqua County Chamber of Commerce is excited to announce a special guest presenter for our next Business Builder Workshop coming up in July. Travis Carlson is an award-winning filmmaker and writer based in Buffalo. A native of Gerry, he worked for five years with the Buffalo Bills and Sabres as a cinematographer before co-founding Pan-American Film Division. Pan-Am partners with local and national businesses to help them communicate with their customers or other businesses. Their original work includes the one-shot feature film Mother’s Day, as well as dozens of shorts; three of which earned screenings at the Cannes Film Festival SFC.

Pan American’s latest project is the book Mafia: Buffalo -vs- the Multiverse. It’s a true fantasy adventure that incorporates AI-developed images into the ultimate Buffalo Bill’s Mafia fan journey in a graphic novel style. A portion of book sale proceeds benefits the Pancho Packs initiative which provides school supplies to students in need.

This Business Builder Workshop will focus on Branding Through Storytelling and Images and promises to be an engaging session for all local businesspeople. It will be held Monday, July 22 from 1-3pm in the Key Auditorium at the SUNY Fredonia Science Center. There will be plenty of time for a question-and-answer session with Travis at the end of the event.

Chamber Business Builder Workshops are free for all to attend, but we do request advance registration for planning purposes. These workshops are designed to provide growth opportunities for local businesspeople as they work to navigate the challenges of operations, marketing, and learning about resources and emerging technologies that can help them work smarter, not harder. As with most Chamber events, there will be networking opportunities built into the occasion. Save the date now or register online through the Chamber’s web calendar at www.chautauquachamber.org.
