What is National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day?
Not all are moms and pops. Really, it’s just about friends and family. Generationally owned small businesses brighten our neighborhoods and connect our communities, so we celebrate them on National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day.
Small flower shops, hardware stores, and burger joints around the nation hold their heads high against the tide of big business. Because of their local connection, they tend to provide better customer service. They also give us the colors and flavors that make our community unique.
Do make all of that possible requires hard work from these folks. Their perseverance through thick and thin gives us businesses full of familiar faces. For that, we salute them on National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day.
