Welcome to the Business Referral Approval Process. The Jefferson County Business Resource Center (JCBRC) wants to help our businesses grow through increased visibility. We want to identify reputable businesses within Jefferson County, Colorado that provide outstanding goods and/or services. You will need to complete the on-line process under “Promote Your Business”. If you qualify, your information will be placed on a list and will be made available to consumers and businesses via our website.


Please note, we are not able to endorse or promote any particular business, but rather, we provide an online list of qualified vendors within Jefferson County, Colorado. In an ongoing effort to maintain the integrity of our business list, we ask our citizen’s and businesses for positive and negative feedback when using the businesses on our Businesses Directory List.


In this process you will be asked to follow these steps:

1. Read and acknowledge the “Code of Ethics.” You must agree to these terms if you wish to be allowed to complete the “Business Vendor Qualification Registration & Assessment.”

2. Complete and submit the “Business Vendor Qualification Registration & Assessment.” The information you provide will be reviewed. The JCBRC will contact you to let you know the outcome.

Did you know…? In a recent quality check for customer service it was noted that 97% of the businesses visited failed to generate a “very satisfied” customer outcome. They failed because of the following:

  • Lack of Basic Courtesy and Respect
  • Inadequate Knowledge of Products and/or Services
  • Not Listening to the Customer/Client
  • Negative Attitudes
