    BROOKLYN CHAMBER ANNOUNCES NATURE’S GRILL AS 1700TH MEMBER

    Three Locations in Brooklyn Latest to Join Fast-Growing Chamber

     

    The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce today announced that Nature’s Grill has become the 1,700th member to join their fast growing organization.

    “We are honored to announce that Nature’s Grill has become the 1,700th member of the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce,” said Chamber President and CEO Carlo A. Scissura. “Thanks to our members, the Ambassador Team, and our amazing staff for helping the Chamber reach this milestone.”

    “The Chamber’s growth over the past two years has been nothing short of incredible,” said Chamber Board Chair Denise Arbesu. “Thanks to the entire Chamber board for being one of the most engaged boards in all of New York City and for helping us achieve this remarkable milestone. We can’t wait to announce 1,800”

    “We are very excited to join the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce,” said Dimitrios Verteouris, Founder of KO Obesity and Co-Owner of Nature’s Grill. “Nature’s Grill and KO Obesity are here to look after our neighbors and we are striving to make Brooklyn a healthier and smarter place to live in! Visit any of our three locations today.”

    The announcement comes amidst a flurry of activity by the Chamber. Over the last two months the Chamber attracted thousands of visitors to DUMBO for BKLYN DESIGNS, record crowds to our annual Not-For-Profit summit at St. Francis College and our Annual Golf Outing in Dyker Heights, celebrated Asian-Pacific Heritage Month in Sunset Park, led a delegations of businesses to meet lawmakers in Washington DC and held events, ribbon cuttings and networking sessions across the borough.

    This past weekend the Chamber organized what was possibly the best attended event in its history, working with the Sheepshead Bay Merchant Organization for the First Annual Sheepshead Bay Summer Stroll.

    “The better Brooklyn’s economy is, the harder we work to make sure our members are a part of it, and that effort has really been recognized by the community,” said Scissura. “It took us three months to move from the 1,500-member to 1,600-member thresholds and just two months to go from 1,600 to 1,700 members.”

    Nature’s Grill believes that the secret to maintaining a healthy mind and body is by creating or living a healthy lifestyle that encompasses balance and variety into every aspect of life. Forget the word “diet.” Their motto is: Eat healthy, live healthy, be healthy! They have locations in Caesar’s Bay, Bay Ridge, and Cobble Hill.

    Everything at Nature’s grill is prepared fresh to order from their own original recipes. Their juices, smoothies and protein shakes are healthy, delicious and a great alternative to meals on the run. All of their natural food dishes are prepared with the highest quality ingredients and are guaranteed fresh daily, without the use of microwaves, M.S.G. or other harmful preservatives.

    The Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce is the foremost resource for doing business in Brooklyn, respected as a leader in advancing public policy, new technologies, products, services and programs that support and promote a vibrant local economy. Its mission is to promote a healthy and robust business environment throughout Brooklyn. The chamber is the foremost economic development leader for the Borough of Brooklyn.
