Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer and the Orlando City Council Proclaim Small Business Week in the City of Orlando

The City of Orlando Encourages Residents to Patronize Small Businesses this Week and All Year Long.

ORLANDO, FL – As part of National Small Business Week, Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer and the Orlando City Council have proclaimed April 30 – May 6, 2017 as ‘Small Business Week’ in the City of Orlando.

In addition to recognizing the great contributions of entrepreneurs and small business owners throughout Orlando, the City is encouraging residents to make a conscious decision to patronize these small businesses this week.

“Our small businesses are truly what make the City of Orlando such a diverse and vibrant City. Because of these thriving small businesses, our residents experience local ownership and a real sense of community. I am so proud that we live in a City where entrepreneurs and small business owners have endless opportunities to succeed,” said Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer.

The small businesses in the City help to drive the local economy, with more than 93 percent of these community businesses having less than 50 employees. Many of these small businesses lie within the City’s Downtown core and in the nine Orlando Main Streets neighborhood commercial districts.

Since the inception of the Orlando Main Streets program in 2008, small business successes within these districts include more than $1 billion in private and public investments, 1,200 new business openings and the creation of nearly 7,000 full and part time jobs. The small businesses within these districts and in Downtown provide residents and visitors with uncommon and handmade goods, one-of-a-kind cuisine and local experiences that are unique to Orlando.
