East Fort Worth Business Association
EFWBA was created to give East Fort Worth business owners a place to meet, and a to have a voice for the advancement, development and improvement of the infra-structure in East Fort Worth, and to provide an atmosphere for businesses to interact and develop relationships for friendship, community and business.
Our meetings presentations cover events and politics affecting the business environment. We provide civic and community information, plans for development of new businesses, roads, trade areas, recreational areas and Educational projects of vital interest to East Fort Worth.
EFWBA advocates for the advancement, development, and improvement of the infra-structure of East Fort Worth (this includes street design, zoning, landscaping, and beautification projects), reviewing and critiqueing issues and projects of interest to business and community of East Fort Worth.
We had a very nice crowd via Zoom to hear an excellent presentation by Leah Rios, President of Nolan Catholic School. The meeting format allowed President Rios to give us a real time tour of the campus that has undergone a massive transformation.
Through the wonders of technology, you can join the tour and see her presentation here: Sept meeting

Postponements: You have probably heard the annual EFWBA banquet has been postponed as has our September Spirit Night at Mexican Inn.
You can still support both of those enterprises by visiting Mexican for lunch or dinner or making a donation to the EFWBA scholarship or library book fund.
Donations can be sent to

I was honored to recently receive a phone call from the owner of the Mexican Inn restaurants, Chris Carroll. Chris heard the banquet was cancelled but he wanted to support the cause and is sending in a generous donation for the effort. It is wonderful to have friends like ours at Mexican Inn!
We're Open for Business signs: The signs are still available for EWFBA members and the members of the Lancaster PID. Contact Kwik Kopy (817.451.6276) to make arrangements to pick up your sign.
