Some of the programs supporting existing businesses are summarized below.
The Department Staff and City leaders work closely with the Chamber to help support existing businesses. The Chamber has many programs complementing those of the City.
Quarterly Promotion Program
The City is taking a proactive step to assist businesses during the SH26 road construction project and in turn seeks to increase sales tax revenue to pay for services that contribute to residents’ quality of life. The City is launching quarterly programs in 2018 to directly aid businesses along SH26 and encourage residents to shop Colleyville first. We are calling these Quarterly Promotions. See below for details.
Next time you’re deciding where to shop or dine, remember, Colleyville is open for business.
The Q1P grant program provides qualifying businesses along the SH26 construction corridor up to $1,000 to spend on advertising. To qualify, a business must be located on SH26 within the project limits (John McCain Road to Brown Trail), generate sales tax, and utilize the phrase “Colleyville is open for business” in its ad. The program has been well received by the business community.
The City of Colleyville partnered with Grapevine-Colleyville Independent School District to encourage each school's Parent Teacher Association to collect receipts with the top three schools turning in the most receipts receiving cash prizes. The schools collected more than 21,000 receipts, which city staff estimates contained about $2 million in local business.
The City of Colleyville has rolled out its Quarter 3 Promotion (Q3P) program aimed at helping businesses affected by the SH26 construction. Every Colleyville household should have received $10 gift card in the mail. This gift card is good at any participating business. Simply provide the gift card to the business at the time of purchase (minimum $20 purchase) and they will provide the discount. If a business is not able to provide the upfront discount, just bring the card and your receipt to finance staff on the first floor of City Hall, and we will reimburse you directly. The gift card may be used anytime between July 1 and September 30, 2018. One per household, and duplication of the card is strictly prohibited. Questions regarding Q3P should be directed to City Hall at 817.503.1111.
