Even though Davis County is the smallest county by land area, it’s the third most populous, and economic development is thriving here. You just have to look around to see that this is true. New retail and residential construction, infrastructure improvement, low job unemployment—all of these are indicative of Davis County being on the move.
All companies help move economic development forward, but this week we want to emphasize our small businesses. Small businesses make up the largest number of companies in the county and also in the Davis Chamber. They are so important to our local economy and to our American way of life. In fact, this week is National Small Business Week and is dedicated to honoring them. This quote comes from the SBA website: “For more than 50 years, 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.”
In the Chamber, we value our small businesses. Just a few of the ways we support them are through Business Alliance, held on the first and third Tuesdays of the month, our Business to Business Expo, held every April, hosting ribbon cuttings, networking business owners together, providing best-in-class training, etc. If you are a small business owner, we thank you. If you know one (which I’m sure you do), show your appreciation to them this week, and every week, by supporting them!
