By all accounts, Berwyn’s business community has started off this year very busy and productive. I would like to begin by sending congratulations to three of our wonderful dining establishments, Autre Monde Café & Spirits, La Notte Café and Paisans Pizzeria and Bar for being recipients of the Open Table 2015 Diners’ Choice Awards. I would also like to congratulate Culver’s of Berwyn for receiving the prestigious Commitment to Excellence award by the restaurant chain for consistently maintaining a high standard in operations, guest experiences, community relationships and team development. Again, thank you and congratulations to the hard-working teams that have earned the right to be called the best at what they do.
Although the aforementioned have officially been recognized, it is my sense that many of the fine businesses who call Berwyn home are equally focused at providing the best experience for those who look to them. I draw inspiration from all who live and work in Berwyn, as we at the Berwyn Development Corporation are always looking at ways to improve the “Berwyn experience.” In fact, we have recently engaged a nationally recognized firm to assist us in evaluating the effectiveness of all of our programming to ensure that our residential and business communities are best served by our efforts. As a nonprofit membership organization, we strive to provide the best possible opportunities and quality of life for all who reach out to us. As much as we enjoy receiving recognition and awards, at the end of the day we know that our success will be measured by your success.
Speaking of great opportunities, we invite you to come out and meet your neighbors at our sponsored community events. Please take a moment and update your calendar with the upcoming Depot District Mini-Golf Pub Crawl from noon to 6 p.m. April 25, Cinco de Mayo Crawl from 5:30 to 10 p.m. May 5, and the always enjoyable Clean Sweep Garage Sale from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 6.
