Celebrated by even Google, National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day commemorate businesses owned by a married couple. Rick Segal honored his parents by creating this day because they opened a business in Massachusetts on March 29th, 1939.
- Local Businesses. If you are a local Mom & Pop business, use this day to your advantage! Post a professional & informative video of your background and story. Explain what makes you a Mom & Pop business (and you don't have to be a Mom & Pop, you can be a Mom & Mom, a Pop & Pop, etc.)
- Connect with others. You can partner up/start a conversation with other Mom & Pop businesses on social media. Using the hashtags below, you can flag your post as related. Hopefully talking about some of the difficulties or successes you have experienced on your way will encourage others to take part in your voluntary discussion.
