Chamber Announces 2023 Small Business of the Year Finalists

MOUNT PLEASANT – 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.

In the Mount Pleasant Area Chamber Alliance, more than 250 businesses have less than 25 employees. Those businesses contribute over $60,000 to the Chamber annually and collectively, small business accounts for more than 1200 jobs in the community.

To showcase small business, the Mount Pleasant Area Chamber Alliance is pleased to announce that Small Business Week will be celebrated May 1-5, 2023. In conjunction, we are pleased to announce the five finalists for the 2023 Small Business of the Year award. Congratulations to Brown’s Shoe Fit, KILJ AM & FM Radio, Moutrie Trucking LLC, Wilson Distributor Service and Your Dream Home Furniture and Floors.

The 2023 Small Business of the Year will be announced at the Small Business Breakfast on May 5.

Small Business Week is made possible by these sponsors:  Platinum-Pilot Grove Savings Bank; Gold-AllenMitchell, LLP; Silver – Cornerstone Building Brands
