Team Local was launched in February 1999, primarily focused on the building industry and is an initiative unique to Tauranga. Since that time Team Local has developed and grown into a marketing umbrella / brand for locally operated businesses.
Our mission statement is:
TO BUILD LOCAL VALUE FOR LOCAL BUSINESSES
This is achieved by builders, businesses, and the general public using Team Providers. They are therefore successful and grow, thereby employing more people who then require more homes and services.
For the Team Providers, it is also a vehicle by which they can network, promoting and supporting each other’s businesses.
Team Local's constitution only allows one provider of a particular product and or service, thereby giving them exclusivity to market themselves under the Team Local brand. This also provides a definitive resource of local businesses to Team Local members and the local community.
Team Local holds a number of functions throughout the year for the various groups associated.
