Member Spotlight

Katie Wafer-Gillberg


Hydrate IV Bar

What brought you to start your business or get into your industry?  My passion for health and wellness, love for creating experiences, and commitment to building community, ultimately led me to founding Hydrate IV Bar. 

What do you love most about what you do?  I am grateful everyday that we have created a feel-good space that promotes wellness and adds value to others lives, including the incredible health professionals that are on our team. 

How can the Chamber help you?  The Cherry Creek Chamber is a fantastic organization to aid in building authentic relationships and experience not only in personal and professional development. Not only have I enjoyed the social element of the Chamber, I have found value and ROI through promoting Hydrate IV Bar and driving appointments and revenue.

Member Promotions

Rocky Mountain Credit Card, a Cherry Creek Chamber member which has been in business for almost 20 years, has partnered with Shift4 with an amazing limited time offer for bar and restaurant owners. Many owners feel stuck with their old POS system or are hurting with the rising fee costs of their current system and processing.

Now through the end of March, Shift4 is offering a $5,000 sign up bonus to switch POS systems to their SkyTab POS. Yes, $5,000 just for switching systems. There is also no upfront cost for the hardware, programming or installation. Please click here to learn more about SkyTab's offer. Once you have done this, you may reach out to Ryan and RMCC directly for any questions or to sign up at 303-875-0621 or ryan@rockymountaincreditcard.com.

Even if you don't own a bar or restaurant but know someone who could take advantage of this offer, there is also a $2,000 referral bonus for any closed SkyTab POS deals. Please reach out to Ryan if you or anyone else knows of any businesses that could use help with this offer.
