Center for Small Business Success

Small businesses account for 99.9% of America’s private sector, and we know that in order to move Bentonville forward it starts with our entrepreneurs and small business community. Small business is the anchor of our economy. They are what makes our community dynamically rich & colorful.

Evan Gray | Chamber of Commerce Staff Member

“We take for granted the big impact that small businesses create for our community. Across the U.S., and here locally, small businesses are the drivers behind the economy and employ 59 million people. For Bentonville specifically, entrepreneurial spirit in is embedded deep in our roots. Small businesses create an identity for us, a sense of place. Not only do we as locals get to relish in what they provide daily, visitors talk about the impact they had on them for years to come once they return to their home. When you shop local, it stays local.”
