This week is National Small Business Week and that means we get to celebrate the 28 million small businesses that help run our economy.
And when we say “run our economy,” we mean it. There are 28 million small businesses in America, and those small businesses account for 54 percent of all U.S. sales, according to the U.S. Small Business Administration. What’s more, small businesses provide 55 percent of all jobs and are responsible for 66 percent of all net new jobs since the 1970s.
Playing such an important role in our economy and local communities, we’re thrilled to share these stories of small business success.
