FROM THE EDITOR
W E L C O M E T O G O L E TA ! The Santa Barbara South Coast Chamber of
Commerce is proud to publish the premier guide to Goleta. From our rich history,
natural beauty, connected community and thriving businesses, Goleta is a great
place to be.
The 2020-2021 Goleta Magazine showcases a unique time in Goleta's history. Our
community is navigating the Coronavirus Pandemic and we continue to innovate
and adapt to new challenges.  
The Magazine shares the stories of business leaders, volunteers and families who
make Goleta such a special community. This edition boasts stories on infrared businesses creating thermometers at record rate, restaurants continuing to change their
business model and offerings, and students embracing a new method of learning.
Featured members are putting their best foot forward to inform you and ask for
your business. We hope you'll seek them first for your lodging, dining, shopping
and services. This magazine is the best way to get to know the community and the
Chamber of Commerce. With 1,100 members representing 70,000 jobs, we are the
voice of business.
