What is Small Business Week? “Every year since 1963, 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.
More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and
they create about two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year.
As part of National Small Business Week, the Frankfort Area Chamber of Commerce is looking for Frankfort and Franklin County's top five (5) small businesses. Please visit the Frankfort Area Chamber of Commerce Facebook page and nominate your favorite local small business—the top five will be announced
during Small Business Week and will be featured on the Chamber website and
Facebook page for one day.
