BBB Common Myths – Busted
July 30, 2014

myths and factsQuestions come up from time to time that are so befuddling we often wonder if there is a myth floating around that needs to be addressed. Today, we address one of these questions.

Today’s Myth: BBB is a Government Agency supported by tax dollars.

Answer: BBB was founded in 1912 by an executive at Coca-Cola who saw that the lack of trust in the marketplace was bad for business and bad for consumers. We empower consumers to make good buying decisions and empower businesses and charities to be even better at the stuff they’re doing right.

In fact, BBB is a neutral, third party when it comes to disputes, encouraging a fair resolution of the dispute between parties and is a non-profit supported by the business community.
