Chandler Launches Campaign to Support Business Community
The City of Chandler’s Economic Development Division is launching a multi-faceted "I Choose Chandler" marketing initiative to support local businesses.

The campaign’s goal is to encourage residents to get back to patronizing Chandler businesses as they begin to reopen with safety measures in place. Additionally, the campaign will work to inform the community of the impact our residents make when they choose to spend their money and volunteer their time in Chandler.

“For businesses and entrepreneurs to succeed during this public health emergency, they need support from the entire community,” said Chandler Mayor Kevin Hartke. “This campaign will creatively showcase the impact residents make each time they choose to shop, dine, volunteer or donate in Chandler.”

The #iChooseChandler campaign will utilize a mix of traditional and digital media to engage residents and Chandler-based businesses. The public is encouraged to connect and engage with  Visit Chandler  social media sites as well as other official City of Chandler media platforms to actively participate in the campaign.

The content will feature new ideas on different places to patronize, ways to show acts of kindness by giving to a nonprofit, a variety of local business features, and opportunities for residents to share why they choose Chandler.
