A large delegation from the Chinese Cuisine Association visited Beverly Hills on May 27th to learn about possible restaurant investment opportunities in the City. The group was welcomed at the Chamber where they received presentations from Executive Director Alex Stettinski and officials from the City about the business climate in Beverly Hills and the process for opening up a restaurant. Afterwards, the delegation was lead on a walking tour in the Triangle. The Chamber helped to coordinate the visit and arrange for all speakers.
