Well-known Boca businesswoman Bobra Bush stood on a stool to thank folks for the turnout.
“We have a thriving business culture and show the rest of the county how it’s done,” she said to applause.
In business for 30 years and a frequent Boca Chamber emcee, Bush drew a crowd for the chamber’s official ribbon cutting Tuesday.
She unveiled her Telcom Corp.’s move from rented space to a commercial condo at 925 Clint Moore Road. Her “partner in life,” Mark Nowak’s law firm has an office there, too.
Telcom is a former Boca Chamber small business of the year, announced Chamber president/CEO Troy McLellan.
“This is progress. It even has a new car smell,” county attorney Dave Aronberg told the crowd.
“The business should grow here in Boca Raton,” said County Commissioner Robert Weinroth, a former city councilman.
“We hope you grow out of this space,” added Mayor Scott Singer.
Bush thanked them, all five city council members, chamber ambassadors and FP&L’s Sophia Eccleston for coming out. [See her speech on our Facebook page video.]
Bush introduced her staff, then posed for an indoor ribbon cutting before offering refreshments. Even the cookies had purple and green sprinkles to match the décor.
Minuteman Press Boca Raton did all the signage, co-owner Lise Orr noted on the way out with the Telcom Corp. and Nowak Law Group names on the door.
