Supper Sessions on the Avenue, September 2016


Mt. Airy USA’s focus on Business Services has been a key platform of the organization, particularly through the renaissance of Germantown Avenue.

Through physical improvements, marketing and promotion, business development, and recruitment activities, Mt. Airy USA has helped create vibrancy on the Germantown Avenue corridor, and works to extend that vibrancy throughout the neighborhood, including other commercial corridors like Chew Avenue and Vernon Road. Specifically, we offer three distinct services, each tailored to different needs, to strive toward achieving that goal.


Business Association

With the formation of the Business Association in 2012, Mt. Airy USA has been able to extend its business development and marketing activities throughout of the neighborhood. The Business Association focuses equally on sustaining local businesses and inviting new businesses to the area. In addition, the Business Association helps businesses to attract customers, improve branding and storefronts, and strengthen business management. Mt. Airy USA has also created festivals and events like Moonlight Movies, Supper Sessions on the Avenue, and previously Street Fare and Final-ly Friday, all of which provide key marketing opportunities for businesses while shining a spotlight on the neighborhood.
