Did you know that most franchise businesses are locally owned and operated?
When I was looking at leaving my teaching job, it was great to know that I could own a small, locally operated franchise business.
Getting to know and help the people in my community was very important to me.
Giving back to the community through donations and sponsorship has been very rewarding!
Small Business Saturday is a day to celebrate and support small businesses and all they do for their communities. This year, Small Business Saturday falls on November 30. Get ready to show your support by shopping at small businesses in your community!
Why Shop Small?
Small businesses are the backbone of the economy. They create jobs, spur innovation, and drive economic growth.
When you shop small, you’re not only supporting a business owner in your community, but you’re also helping to strengthen your local economy.
How to Shop Small
One of the best things about Small Business Saturday is that it’s easy to participate.
Just head out to your favorite small businesses and start shopping! If you need some ideas, here are a few ways you can shop small:
-Stop by your local coffee shop for breakfast and pick up a few pastries to go.
-Pick up lunch from that new sandwich place you’ve been meaning to try.
-Do some holiday shopping at your favorite boutique or gift shop.
-Treat yourself to a spa day or afternoon of retail therapy.
-Make a reservation at that trendy new restaurant for dinner.
-Plan a night out with friends at your favorite bar or pub.
-Shop small online! Many small businesses have websites and offer shipping options.
