Celebrating Small Businesses

Celebrating Small Businesses

March 29, 2023

Small businesses are the backbone of the American and global economies. In fact, over 99% of American firms are small businesses, and there are currently around 400 million small businesses worldwide.1

March 29 is a day that we acknowledge small business owners everywhere by celebrating National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day. Rick and Margie Segel created the holiday in honor of the hat shop their parents opened in 1939 and grew to a $2 million specialty clothing store.2

How can you celebrate the small businesses that make up your community?

  • Create your own “small business crawl” and explore the small businesses that make up your community. You may find a new favorite place to shop.
  • Purchase gift cards from your favorite local spot for yourself, family, and friends.
  • Leave reviews online to help others find your favorite small businesses.
  • Celebrate your favorite small businesses on social media using the hashtag #MomPopBusinessOwnersDay.

National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day recognizes the hard work and devotion that millions of business owners put in every day. We hope you use National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day as a chance to connect with the small businesses that keep America running.
