Our business model is built around this idea. It is a direct response to the demographic changes and business fragmentation that has steadily been occurring for the better part of the last decades.

Like the invaluable service that the bee performs for crops and the broader ecosystem, small businesses help communities survive and thrive across the United States.

In this climate, we cannot rely on empty rhetoric to help our businesses survive into the future. Only by banding together and harnessing the power of the many will we succeed.

We are always stronger together.
