Director of Downtown Development
Andy Jones works as an advocate for existing downtown businesses, helping them work through business obstacles and identify incentives for improvement. In addition, he reaches out to new businesses to fill vacant storefronts in the downtown area. As the Director of Downtown Development for the Greater Elkhart Chamber of Commerce, Andy serves a critical role in Downtown development. We believe that the ability for entrepreneurs to be able to get easy one stop access to support services is one of the keys to our business attraction success in Elkhart’s Downtown.
Andy works closely with the vibrant Downtown Merchants Alliance, city Government, the Gateway Mile Loan Fund, Aurora Capitol Loan Fund, “SCORE” free business consulting, Small Business Development Corporation, Center for Business Excellence, and other Chamber support services.
Having worked with hundreds of local retail businesses over his business career the chances are pretty good that Andy can get you the help you need in starting your own business in Downtown Elkhart.
