The Mission of the Bremen Chamber of Commerce is to unite local businesses and support economic vitality, community prosperity, and quality of life in Bremen, A Good Town.
Founded in the mid-19th century, Bremen remains a traditional Midwestern small town. Its most famous resident was Otis R. "Doc" Bowen, MD, who became governor of Indiana and later Secretary of Health and Human Services under Ronald Reagan. Historically, Bremen was home to the Leman spearmint refinery, which left its mark in various ways, including the town's nickname of "Mint City." Which is where the Mint City Cruise got its name. Bremen High School football teams claimed Indiana state championships in 1989 (Class A) and 1994 (Class 2A), while appearing in the state finals in 1988 and 1995. The 2008 Bremen High School softball team claimed runner-up in the Indiana state championship (Class 2A). The Bremen Chamber was established in 1964.
Bremen supports light and heavy industry in the form of fiberglass and custom cabinet manufacturing, RV and van painting, and roller bearing manufacture. Much of its industry supports the large RV manufacturing in the area, especially in nearby Nappanee and Elkhart.
