Capital Business Referral Group (CBRG) is a nonprofit group of area small business owners and sales professionals, focused on growing their business through contacts and referrals.  Our members know the value of networking and sharing, and we are energized by the old-fashion idea of “taking care of our own.”

What separates CBRG from other area business associations is its exclusive membership – limited to one representative per occupation.  This allows us to know each better and to assure that we do not dilute contacts and referrals.  Another unique feature of our group is our “one on one” meetings among members.  In short, we know each other, and we know each other’s business!

By working together, we can grow business in Franklin County.  We meet bi-weekly to network and share information while identifying leads which help to broaden the service base for each our business owner members.

    We offer:

  • A proven Referral System
  • Professional Advertising
  • Website/Web Ring of Local Businesses
  • Solid Professional Relationships

If you are a sales professional or own a small business in Franklin County and would like to exchange identified leads with your counterparts in different professions, CBRG may be the option you have been searching for. If you would like to learn more, please join us as a guest for our bi-weekly meeting on Thursday from 12 noon to 1 pm at Ashwood Place Retirement Community (upstairs in separate dining area/meeting room) at 102 Leonardwood Drive.
