How small businesses enrich your community

MOST OF YOUR DOLLARS
STAY HERE

For every $100 spent at a locally owned business, $67 recirculates and remains in our area. Money reinvested in our community supports a robust local economy.
(American Express, NFIB)

PRESERVE UNIQUE
COMMUNITY CHARACTER

One-of-a-kind businesses are an integral part of an area's distinct personality that attracts tourists, young people, empty-nesters and future investors.

JOB CREATION AND
BUSINESS OWNERSHIP

Small companies have always been an integral part of economic growth. They create 1.5 million jobs annually and account for 64 percent of new jobs created in the U.S.
(Fundera, 2019)

MORE SUPPORT FOR
LOCAL ORGANIZATIONS

Small businesses donate 250% more than larger businesses to local non-profits and community causes. 75% of small business owners donate an average of 6% of their profits to charitable organizations each year.

BETTER SERVICE AND
PERSONAL ATTENTION

Small-business owners treasure the relationships with their customers. Because these small businesses need the support of local consumers, you can expect to get friendly, personal customer service.

BENEFICIAL
ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

Residents of neighborhoods with more local businesses log 26% less automobile miles. Locally owned businesses make more local purchases and set up shop in town which means less sprawl, congestion and pollution.
