Feedstore BBQ & More: BARBECUE

here's to the little guys Small businesses are the lifeblood of the U.S. economy, contributing close to half of the country’s gross domestic product and two-thirds of all new jobs. More importantly, small businesses have the heart that make communities better. They do everything from feed us our favorite meals to service our air conditioning. And they do it all with the love and care of a friend who hopes to see you again soon. In times like these, I’m prouder than ever to be a small business serving this community. This month we’ve done a special service compiling your opinions on the best area businesses across five categories: food and drink, health and wellness, entertainment, services and retail. The pages that follow are the results of your nominations and votes. I ask that you let them serve as one big community referral when you need them most. They can also serve as a reminder to support the very businesses who support our schools, our youth sports teams and our local charities each and every day. Studies have shown that as much as $45 out of every $100 spent locally gets recirculated within the community. Let’s all shop the area’s best, the timing couldn’t be better.
