Chamber to host showcase for Black-owned businesses

The Greater Romulus Chamber of Commerce will host the  Black-Owned Business and Vendor Showcase Feb. 26.

The free event will take place at the City Event Centre, 37451 Ecorse Road and is open to the public.

The Black-Owned Business and Vendor Showcase is the newest offering from the chamber Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force. The Task Force sponsored an “Intro to DEI” event last fall and is also working on a Women in Business Panel Discussion for March.

Jazmine Danci, executive director of the Romulus chamber, said that about 10 percent of the current chamber members are Black-owned businesses, something officials hope to see increase.

“Black and other minority-owned businesses are an important part of the economy. We hope the Showcase will bring together new consumers and buyers, strengthening the whole community,” Danci said.

Black-owned businesses from Romulus and the surrounding area are invited to purchase table space at the Showcase on a first come-first serve basis online at, or on the Facebook page. 

Vendor spaces are priced at $40 for non-chamber members and $20 for current members. There are discounts available for those who wish to join the chamber, Danci said.

The Greater Romulus Chamber aims to build and strengthen the local economy by providing networking opportunities and promotions for their members, she added. To learn more about the Greater Romulus Chamber of Commerce, visit, call (734) 893-0694, or visit the Facebook site.
