Through the BABC, members have the opportunity to develop valuable business contacts within the British American community and to exchange ideas and information with a cross section of business, trade and governmental interests.
Recognizing the potential benefits that a larger, more financially stable airline could have on both national and regional economies, American Airlines and US Airways joined forces in late 2013 to form the American Airlines Group (American). Although it has been just under a year since the merger became official, the upside – especially in greater Philadelphia – is already clear: consumers of all types now enjoy improved air travel options. The stronger airline has helped create a stronger economy, and more capacity has allowed American to make an even bigger economic impact on the region’s communities and businesses.
On Thursday, March 12, 2015, the British American Business Council of Greater Philadelphia hosted the Fourth Annual New Jersey Networking event and sit down dinner at The British Chip Shop in Haddonfield, New Jersey. BABC members and friends occupied more than half the restaurant for another fun-filled pub night. Chip Shop proprietors offered attendees a superb selection of specialty beers and a wonderful meal including delicious appetizers: Welsh rarebit, sausage rolls, and deviled eggs. Dinner entrée included a choice of several traditional UK delicacies: bangers and mash, fish and chips, chicken mushroom pie, or beet salad. No meal is complete without dessert. What could be better than homemade British biscuits and English brewed tea?
