Our Mission Statement

COBA was founded with an entrepreneurial spirit and a lofty objective: to inspire, motivate and champion the small business community along the Route 9 Corridor, through the stimulation of new ideas, shared information and co-operation with local municipalities; all to encompass a more efficient and effective way to grow and create business in the local community.


Recently John Crisafulli our Founder and Past President was honored with receiving the "2021 Joseph H Vicari Tourism Achievement Award" by the Ocean County Board of Commissioners.
