A ribbon cutting is the ceremonial opening of a brand-new or newly-renovated/relocated business under new management. It can inaugurate an organization’s first day of business or it can take place weeks after the business’ soft opening.
Because the ribbon cutting marks a very significant moment in the business’ history, this is also a great photo opportunity. The ceremony gives the business owner or manager a chance to say a few words to those in attendance.
