Small Business Saturday

November 25, 2023 by Emily Moore

Small Business Saturday (Sat Nov 25, 2023)! 

Think of your hometown, where the corner café knows your coffee order and the local bookstore recommends your next read. These small businesses aren't just charming; they're the livelihood of your community. They provide jobs for your neighbors, creating two-thirds of all new employment opportunities, and they make up over 40% of your town's economic heartbeat. When you shop locally, you're not just making a purchase; you're investing in the well-being of your town. It's a cycle of support where every $100 spent at a small business keeps $70 right there, helping your community grow and thrive. 

But the true value is about more than money, right? I’m talking about the unique personalities of all small businesses that define the vibrancy and character of a given community – the independent cafes, taquerías, barbershops, nail salons, dog groomers, etc. that make a place specifically, colorfully that place. Those cozy storefronts aren't just shops; they're the soul of your hometown, and your support keeps the magic alive.

As we approach the holiday season, keep in mind that the Saturday after Thanksgiving is Small Business Saturday – a great time to think BIG and shop small! By doing so, you’re investing in your community in countless meaningful ways. 

Perhaps this year, Small Business Saturday resonates differently with you. Maybe you’re among those dreaming of starting a business or making a profound mark in your community. Sticky Fingers Cooking offers franchise opportunities, an alternative to starting entirely from scratch. With the challenges small businesses face, especially given that most close their doors within the first five years, franchising can provide a more structured and supported pathway. In fact, data suggests that after 5 years in business, 80% of franchise owners are not just surviving, they’re THRIVING! 

As of 2023, Sticky Fingers Cooking offers franchise opportunities
