Chamber Announces

2024 Small Business of the Year Finalists

MOUNT PLEASANT – The Mount Pleasant Area Chamber Alliance is pleased to announce that Small Business Week will be celebrated April 29 – May 3, 2024. In conjunction, we are pleased to announce the five finalists for the 2024 Small Business of the Year Award. Congratulations to From the Heart Flowers & Gifts, Orthodontic Associates of Iowa, Sa3m Sao Market, Southeast Iowa Realty, Inc. and Triple Seven Trucking.

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.

The 2024 Small Business of the Year will be announced at the Small Business Breakfast on May 3.

Small Business Week is made possible by these sponsors:  Platinum-Pilot Grove Savings Bank; Silver – Community 1st Credit Union
