In 2022, we launched the Open for Small Business campaign to highlight small business owners in the Atlanta area and how they have woven into the fabric of their communities. From favorite local restaurants to artisan-crafted candles, we shared a five-part video series showcasing the talents and stories of these incredible entrepreneurs.

In addition, we invited social media users to nominate their favorite small businesses around Atlanta to participate in our sweepstakes event. We received a flood of nominations and were honored to read the stories of creators and entrepreneurs who are making a difference in their communities.

At the close of the campaign, we randomly selected four winners from the nomination pool. Each business received a small business growth kit from U.S. Bank and Elavon, which included a new laptop, a wellness package from The Manifest Company, and a $500 gift card. We are proud to support small businesses and equip them with the tools they need to succeed.
