Small Business Saturday
This year, The Leadership Class of 2023 Class Projects is to widely promote Small Business Saturday. The Port Orange South Daytona Chamber of Commerce with our Leadership Class is partnered with American Express for Shop Small.
You can find an amazing mix of unique gifts and exceptional services to purchase for family and friends, while contributing to the well-being of your community’s economy.
Since its 2010 inception by American Express, Small Business Saturday has generated some $163 billion in consumer spending. In 2021—the program’s 12th Anniversary year—an estimated 110 million consumers shopped and/or dined on Small Business Saturday, generating a record $23.3 billion in spending, an increase of 18 percent from 2020 ($19.8 billion), according to the Small Business Saturday Consumer Insights Survey, which was conducted by Teneo on behalf of American Express and the National Federation of Independent Businesses (NFIB).
Today, small businesses (500 employees or less) account for nearly 33.2 million U.S. businesses, employ 46.4 percent of those working in the private sector and create two out of every three new jobs. We support all our small businesses.
