About Ribbon Cuttings

The West I-10 Chamber welcomes new members and new businesses by providing a ribbon cutting event. These events are published on our web site and in the local newspapers. It's just one more way we serve our members and promote your business.


Members of the Brookshire business community joined the West I-10 Chamber of Commerce and McDonald's Carmichael Enterprises for the pre-opening Ribbon Cutting of the new McDonald's at 308 FM 359 at IH-10 on September 28, 2011.

Attendees were welcomed by owner, Dan Carmichael, with refreshments from the extensive coffee and juice menu and the opportunity to tour of the new McDonald's introducing a new modern look in seating and the latest technology in the kitchen.

The children's playground has been replaced with table computer/educational games. The new menu offers healthier choices. The new Brookshire McDonald's opened to the public on September 29th.
