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. Nationwide celebrations including conferences and awards are hosted by the U.S. Small Business Administration.
To complement the nationwide celebrations, Erie County Economic Development Corporation (ECEDC) will be honoring the many innovative companies and unique small businesses that have come to call Erie County, Ohio home. From April 30 -May 6 ECEDC will highlight one local small business per day through its Small Business Week Email campaign.
The daily features will explore how and why these small businesses call Erie County home, what it takes for them to succeed and grow in Erie County and more behind the scenes details about owning and managing a small business in North Central Ohio.
Featured Businesses Include:
- Air Filter Factory
- Bates Farm Kitchen
- Elite Wellness
- New Departure Films
- Schlessman Seed
