55th annual National Small Business week kicks off

News

Every year since 1963, the President of the United States has issued a proclamation announcing the national week, which recognizes the contribution of America’s small business owners and entrepreneurs.

22news spoke with Meaghan Sullivan, a local business owner from Joe’s Cafe in Northampton who said it’s the people who make small businesses such a success, “The regulars are definitely the backbone of our business. They just provide character to the place. It’s nice to see somebody walking in who’s never been to Joe’s before and our regulars step up.”

More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business.
