One of the great things about being a small business in Maine is being involved with our community! We have partnered with many local charities including our biggest community project which was donating a full commercial kitchen to House in the Woods Veteran’s Retreat.
We are active members In the Bangor, Ellsworth and Bar Harbor Chamber of Commerces. Collaborating with our community friends we are all able to support and encourage locally owned businesses throughout our state while having a lot of fun.
Speaking of fun, we are the five time champions of the Bar Harbor Bed Race! Being involved with the Bar Harbor and Ellsworth Chambers has truly been a joy. Maine is a small, friendly state and it is essential that we work together to support each other.
Many people admire our urban vegetable garden here at R.M. Flagg Restaurant Supply. The Veazie Garden Club awarded us their Community Beautification Award of our gardening efforts! Owner Stacey Guerin, a Penobscot County Master Gardener, enjoys sharing her knowledge of gardening in an urban setting. She literally transformed a 3 X 100 foot strip of dirt in front of our building into a beautiful garden full of interesting heirloom tomatoes, unique vegetables and a sprinkling of her grandmother’s favorite heritage flowers.
