PFGP Hosts Networking Event for Local Community
PF Growth Partners’ location in Jackson, Tennessee, hosted a Business After Hours networking event in conjunction with the Jackson Chamber of Commerce in January. It was PFGP Jackson’s fifth year sponsoring events with the area’s Chamber of Commerce.
Melissa Hill, the general manager of the Jackson Planet Fitness®, led the charge on organizing the event, which was held at the club. Guests enjoyed food, signature cocktails, a DJ and raffle prizes. According to the Jackson Chamber’s social media post, approximately 150 people attended.
The purpose of the event was to share Planet Fitness’ love of fitness with the community and show what the brand has to offer. Additionally, the event allowed people from other industries or businesses to mingle with one another and promote their own business interests.
In 2021, PFGP was unable to hold the annual event due to COVID-19 restrictions, and this year’s gathering was the first since the start of the pandemic. According to Kali Roscoe, regional manager for PFGP, the return of the event was highly successful.
“GM Melissa Hill and her team continue to wow,” Roscoe said. “Chamber representatives were quick to praise the event and comment that our Business After Hours event always has the highest attendance. Even though we see a lot of the same faces year after year, there are always several tours, sign-ups and lots of ‘oohs and aahs’ as Chamber members experience Planet Fitness for the first time.”
“As always, the food was delicious, the table scapes looked lovely and Melissa’s signature cocktails were a huge crowd pleaser,” Roscoe added. “The DJ kept the vibe fun, and all the winners of the raffle prizes that Melissa put together were excited to win.”
