“As the big box stores continue to get even bigger, it’s more important than ever to recognize and celebrate the power of small business ownership across the country” said Brian Mattingly, CEO of Welcomemat Services. “The Welcomemat Services model was built on finding a way to create more awareness and loyalty for businesses owned by men and women living and working within the community. Our franchisees have the pleasure of working with owners in some of the most vibrant and exceptional neighborhoods. We are excited to give special recognition to the 25 that stand out as being committed to a thriving small business environment – but also to remind everyone with our Small Business Season campaign that we should be celebrating and putting money back into businesses with local ownership more than just one day of the year.”
