The Ruby Awards are presented each year by the Ohio Travel Association and Ohio Magazine. It stands for “Recognizing Uncommon
Brilliance” in the travel industry, and what they consider to be “creative genius.” The Grandview Chamber of Commerce won the Marketing Campaign category for their “Chamber Challenge” and were the only chamber among statewide travel and tourism organizations to have won!

The Chamber Challenge is the name of the Grandview Chamber’s pilot program designed to provide assistance to struggling local businesses. The French Loaf Bakery was the first beneficiary of this program. Vital and the Grandview Chamber channeled popular reality shows, like Restaurant Impossible and Bar Rescue, for inspiration on how to give the business a “makeover”, and to
create a video telling the story.
