Leading Business of the Month – Carolina Cool

We guessed the winner of our October Leading Business of the Month sponsored by South State Bank said, “That’s cool,” in response to news of the award.

We were close. In fact, Carolina Cool owner Verlon Wulf said, “How about that? That’s pretty cool.”

It’s a good guess, after all. “That’s cool” is a company slogan and is even part of the logo.

Chamber members since 1999, Carolina Cool is an all-inclusive mechanical service provider for commercial and residential properties most known for their heating and air services. Their experienced technicians also handle plumbing, electrical, solar power, refrigeration and indoor air quality. Those technicians also are certified, bonded and insured.

The company formed in 1985 as Carolina Cooling & Plumbing Inc. but changed its name to Carolina Cool in 2006.

Carolina Cool is proud to have been named a winner or finalist of The Sun News’ “Best of the Beach” and the Myrtle Beach Herald’s “Reader’s Choice” in multiple, successive years. Both awards are chosen through community votes.Leading Business of the Month

Leading Business of the Month – H.B. Springs Co. & KOA

For the first time since starting the award, two long-time members shared the honors of Leading Business of the Month.

H.B. Springs Company was first recognized at September’s Leading Business of the Month sponsored by South State Bank. H.B. Springs has provided insurance to families and businesses in Horry and Georgetown counties since 1928.

It is among the largest insurance agencies in Myrtle Beach today promising local, reliable and affordable coverage. Services offered include auto and home insurance, life, health and disability coverage, personal lines, business lines, annuities, employee benefits and storm preparation.

A storm is what brought about our second honoree.

For days, the Myrtle Beach area watched the track of Hurricane Irma with nervous anticipation. As the major hurricane shifted west and the Grand Strand breathed a sigh of relief the Myrtle Beach KOA Kampground offered refuge to evacuees.

The campsites at the KOA on Fifth Avenue South in Myrtle Beach, which include full hookups with water and sewer, were made available at no cost for two days to those temporarily displaced by Hurricane Irma.

For their generosity, which showcases the Southern hospitality lauded along the Grand Strand, Myrtle Beach KOA Kampground also is September’s Leading Business of the Month sponsored by Leading Business of the MonthSouth State Bank.

Leading Business of the Month – Serendipity Inn

On the northern end of Myrtle Beach, just two blocks from the ocean and its tall hotels, lies the Serendipity Inn.

Nestled among trees behind Flamingo Grill, this 15-room bed and breakfast opened in June 1998. Since its opening, the Serendipity Inn remains a family owned and operated B&B that serves a continental breakfast daily.

It’s described as quaint, romantic and charming.

Serendipity Inn can accommodate small weddings. The property also has a pool and hot tub and fire pit in an enclosed courtyard for guests to enjoy and the beach is a short walk down 71st Avenue North.

Each room is decorated differently to reflect different time periods in the Spanish Mission-style inn.Some rooms have kitchens, others are efficiencies. Some have four-poster beds while others have simpler headboards.Leading Business of the Month

Leading Business of the Month – Benjamin’s Bakery & Café

June’s Leading Business of the Month sure smells sweet.

Benjamin’s Bakery & Café was named Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce’s Leading Business of the Month sponsored by South State Bank in June.

The bakery on Third Avenue South in Surfside Beach is open daily for breakfast and lunch. You’ll find assorted pastries, bagels and breads all made fresh, daily, along with coffee and smoothies. Loaves of breads are available for purchase, too.

In addition to their daily menu, Benjamin’s Bakery serves seasonal specialties including pre-Lenten traditional King Cakes and gingerbread cookies.

Even if you’ve never been to Benjamin’s Bakery & Café, you may have tasted their goods. That’s because their fresh baked products are sold wholesale to many other businesses along the Grand Strand.

The eatery, originally called Benjamin’s Bagels, opened in 1994. The name was later changed to reflect the variety of foods on the menu.Leading Business of the Month

So, who is Benjamin? Owners Lee and Wendy Zulanch named the restaurant after their eldest son.

Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce Celebrating National Travel and Tourism Week

Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce and Myrtle Beach Area Convention and Visitors Bureau are joining hundreds of cities, states and businesses across the country in the nation’s annual salute to the power of travel and tourism. This year marks the 34th annual National Travel and Tourism Week, and the celebration is set to run through May 13, 2017, with the theme “Faces of Travel.”

Each year, 18 million tourists visit the Myrtle Beach area, and MBACC is celebrating the week with activities and promotions for those visiting the Grand Strand.

The chamber’s visitors center on Oak Street will have refreshments throughout the week starting Monday. At our Airport Visitors Center, there will be refreshments periodically during the week and steel drum entertainment by Tim Peterman Wednesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Online, we’ll be highlighting a few local faces of the hospitality industry, which represents about 83,000 people on the Grand Strand.

“This is a great way to recognize our visitors and celebrate the ‘thank you for visiting’ message we share all year long in Myrtle Beach,” said Brad Dean, president and CEO of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce. “We know our 60 miles of beautiful coastline bring tourists here for the first time, but it’s our community and the warm Southern hospitality that brings them back, so we’re glad to celebrate the many faces of travel this year.”

National Travel and Tourism Week was established as National Tourism Week in 1983 when the U.S. Congress passed a joint resolution designating the week to be celebrated in May 1984. In a White House ceremony, President Ronald Reagan signed a presidential proclamation urging citizens to observe the week with “the appropriate ceremonies and activities.” By January 1986, industry leaders had formed a permanent full-time office at the U.S. Travel Association to sponsor the event and expand tourism awareness into year-round programs.
