Better Business Bureau Northwest + Pacific is on a quest to help build better businesses and shine a light on those that are working hard to advance marketplace trust. To that, we will be highlighting small BBB Accredited Businesses during Small Business Week, which runs from April 29 – May 5, 2018. Did you know that small businesses create two out of every three jobs in America? According to the Small Business Administration, in the Northwest and Pacific, there are an estimated 1.5 million small businesses who employ around 3 million workers. All week your BBB will be out in the community thanking our small businesses for playing a vital role in our local and national economy. We’ll be sharing their stories on all of our social media pages throughout the week. Hear their stories by following #BBBSmallBiz and #SmallBusinessWeek on social media. Use the hashtags to tell us about your favorite small business! Locally, BBB Northwest + Pacific supports more than 1.4 million small businesses, with more than 17,000 of those companies earning BBB Accreditation. We are dedicated to offering all small businesses assistance with marketing, business tips and customer support.
