Introducing the Medway town-wide Business Directory. Check your listing.

Medway Business Council is proud to announce our newest initiative to help build a stronger business community in Medway.  The new town-wide Medway Business Directory, which launched on November 9, 2020.  The MBC Board of Directors realized that there has been no central resource where residents/businesses can find a list of all local businesses. As part of our mission to encourage shopping and buying local, we wanted to create and host this resource for the benefit of the entire Medway community.

While certainly it’s possible to do an internet search, not every business is equally strong with an online presence and there are many businesses that might be overlooked by doing a simple online search.  Having a comprehensive directory where you can find businesses by category, search, and name will help Medway consumers more easily find local providers for their needs.

Helping local businesses be found by local consumers

We created the FREE directory, www.medwaybusinessdirectory.com, which lists every business in Medway whether or not they are a member of MBC. We encourage every business to visit the site to ensure that their information is correct and that they are listed under the proper category. Updates can be submitted via the site.

There are two levels of listings:

FREE Basic Listing for Every Medway Business – We want to help every Medway business be found and be successful because we believe that a rising tide lifts all boats.  Every business in Medway has a basic listing including:

  • Business Name
  • Address
  • Phone Number
  • Location Map
  • Listing under one Category

Enhanced Business Listing for all Medway Business Council Members – As a way of delivering additional value for membership (which is just $95 per year), MBC Member Businesses have an enhanced listing, which includings:

  • Business Name
  • Address
  • Phone Number
  • Location Map
  • Logo
  • Contact Name
  • Email address
  • Website link
  • Business info description – extremely helpful to help consumers find you when doing a keyword search
  • Up to 3 category listings
  • Listed at top of categories/searches

We pooled information from a variety of sources to come up with a comprehensive business list, and have scrubbed it to the best of our ability. Admittedly, keeping a directory updated is a challenge as businesses open, close and move. However, it is our hope that with the support of the entire business community and directory users reporting any needed updates, the process of maintenance will be a natural and ongoing process. Ultimately, it will be a community project for the benefit of all.

Power in Numbers

Our hope is that more Medway businesses will join MBC’s efforts to champion the cause of buying local. By joining MBC, businesses not only get an enhanced directory listing, but they also receive other member benefits of being included in our advertising, have member access to our monthly events, increase networking opportunities, and be part of a movement to encourage shopping local as well as build a stronger business community in Medway. Having a larger and more active membership will provide more resources for MBC to do additional work. We hope that the new Medway Business Directory will be a catalyst for more businesses to join, and encourage our members to help spread the word.

Special thanks to John Haddad of Bisinet Technologies, and Wayne Texeira of Murphy Insurance Agency for their work in making the directory a reality.
