"Glendale Gold Star" Program

"Glendale Gold Star" Program

New program helps Glendale businesses go above and beyond for customer peace of mind

certificate exampleThe Glendale Chamber of Commerce and Visit Glendale are starting a program designed to help consumers and the visitors who come to Glendale understand the sanitization and health protocols local businesses follow. The idea is to highlight those businesses that have pledged to exceed the recommendations made by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Many consumers are still concerned about visiting local businesses and restaurants. A lot of these businesses are struggling because of the lack of foot traffic that may be entering their once thriving business. The “Glendale Gold Star” program will help businesses to implement CDC recommended protocols and help customers to be informed about the sanitization and health standards being used in Glendale businesses.

Glendale businesses can participate in the “Glendale Gold Star” program by pledging to follow enhanced sanitization and health procedures. Interested businesses should contact the Glendale Chamber of Commerce or visit their website at

The Chamber will provide a “Glendale Gold Star” checklist, which includes not only the sanitizing efforts set forth by the CDC, but it also specifies additional ways a business can go above and beyond and apply those practices to their operations. Once completed, they will return their signed checklist to the Chamber which will register them as a “Glendale Gold Star” business and provide them a certificate they can display in the window of their establishment.

The Chamber and Visit Glendale (Glendale Convention & Visitors Bureau) will also maintain a list of participating businesses on their websites. Glendale businesses that take the pledge by Nov. 1 will be entered into a drawing for two round trip tickets on Southwest Airlines.

Consumers will still need to abide by any individual safety protocols set forth by local, county, or state mandates and CDC recommendations.
