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.

Leading Business of the Month – The Carolina Opry


Carolina Opry

 

A chamber member since 1986, The Carolina Opry started the same year by Calvin Gilmore as a 1,000-seat theater in Surfside Beach. When shows sold out steadily a second show, The Dixie Jubilee, was added in North Myrtle Beach. The second show soon sold out nightly, too, prompting Gilmore to construct a 2,200-seat theater in 1993 which is still used today.

The Carolina Opry has garnered a variety of accolades through the years from media outlets such as USA Today, The New York Post, The Hollywood Reporter and Variety Magazine among others. It also was awarded the South Carolina Governor’s Cup – the state’s highest tourism award.

Five shows, including a seasonal production “The Christmas Show of the South,” run nightly except most Sundays at The Carolina Opry. “TCO” is the theater’s signature production featuring two-hours of high-energy music, comedy and dance. “Time Warp” will take you back in time to celebrate the music of the 60s, 70s and 80s. “Thunder and Light” is a dance, laser and magic show staring the hip-hop clogging group All That! “LIGHT” is a 45-minute laser light show series set to different music including the Beatles, Led Zepplin and Pink Floyd.

The theater also holds additional special events such as performances by Wynonna and the Big Noise and The Charles Daniels Band in March.
