On March 29th, small business owners are honored each year on National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day. Small businesses play a vital part in the United States economy and our economy here in Broussard. With more than 27 million small businesses in the United States, it comes as no surprise that many of these “mom and pop” businesses offer superior customer service and an unmatchable passion.
Did you know that Broussard offers many incentives and start-up programs for small businesses? Among these programs is the Small Business Development Center, which partners with the University of Louisiana at Lafayette that offers “no-cost confidential business consulting and affordable workshops.” Broussard also works with the Opportunity Machine in Lafayette, which offers small business boot camps, entrepreneur round tables, workshops, and the Innovate South Conference each fall.
If you own a small business or are thinking about opening one, contact the Broussard Economic Development Corporation for information on why Broussard is the perfect place for your business. As National Mom and Pop Day approaches, please consider supporting the small businesses in Broussard by shopping locally!
