April 4, 2019
Small Business of the Year Finalists
Every year since 1963, the President of the United States has issued a proclamation announcing National Small Business Week, which recognizes the critical contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners. More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create about two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year.
In the Mount Pleasant Area Chamber Alliance, more than 250 businesses have less than 25 employees. Those businesses contribute over $60,000 to the Chamber annually and collectively, small business accounts for more than 1200 jobs in the community.
“Every day, small businesses are working to grow their business, create jobs, and improve their community.” said Kristi Ray, Executive Vice President of the Mount Pleasant Area Chamber Alliance.
To showcase small business, the Mount Pleasant Area Chamber Alliance is pleased to announce that Small Business Week will be celebrated April 29-May 3, 2019. In conjunction, we are announcing five finalists for the 2019 Small Business of the Year award. Congratulations to Becker's Jewelers & Gemologist, Mary Kay Cosmetics-Betty Mullen, Paul Revere's Pizza, Staats, Team Staffing Solutions.
Small Business Week will kick-off with a celebration at Pilot Grove Savings Bank on Monday, April 29 at 8:00 am and will commence with the announcement of the Small Business of the Year at a special luncheon on Friday, May 3 at 11:30 am at the Mount Pleasant Golf & Country Club. Other events that week will include Alive After Five at Henry County Heritage Trust, Inc. on Wednesday, May 1 and ribbon cuttings at each of the finalists throughout the week.
