“Community, culture and commerce,” the Back Mountain Chamber of Commerce (BMC) motto, is not just words; it is a formula for protecting and advancing the Back Mountain region, ensuring that the beauty and safety of our community continues.

A financially-healthy business community ensures a well-maintained region. The BMC is very fortunate to be have a large variety of active members and supporting businesses, which also serve as an integral part of chamber events throughout the year. Supporting these local establishments of the BMC, and our area, helps keep the Back Mountain community a viable area to raise our families.

This month the BMC would like to highlight the many food service/restaurant members. This area is home to many excellent and diverse culinary establishments, many of which are family-orientated.

Our member restaurants and banquet facilities include: Apple Tree Terrace at Newberry, The Beaumont Inn, CK’s Cantina and Grill, Fire and Ice at Toby’s Creek, Grotto Pizza, The Huntsville Golf Club, Irem Temple Country Club, Leggio’s Italian Restaurant, Peking Chef, and Pizza Perfect.

The BMC member food service entities include: Domino’s Pizza, The Dymond Farm Market, J & J Deli, Mountain Beverage, Pizza Bella, Red’s Subs and Pizza, Star Bakery, The Beekeeper’s Daughter, Thomas’ Family Market, and Will Love Stella Sweets.

The next time you want to grab a bite to eat, or bring home some hot food for your families, remember your local Back Mountain establishments; their success ensures our community’s success.
