This week is an important week here at Fooducopia—it’s National Small Business Week. Our country’s 30.2 million small businesses should all be celebrated. And here at Fooducopia, a small restaurant in Denver, we are more than proud—we are grateful.
Last week we were honored with a feature in Denver Westword regarding our brunch menu. Tim Lymberopoulos, owner of Fooducopia—a small restaurant in Denver, had this to say in the article: “People are hungry for food, but I think they are also hungry for community — and that’s what they get here.”
Created in 1953, the US Small Business Administration has helped countless Americans start, build and grow businesses.
So what does this mean for Americans? Plenty. Stop and think for a minute the last 3 stops you made. Did you purchase a coffee at your local coffee shop? Or did you slip into your favorite nail salon and treat yourself to a new mani-pedi? Or perhaps you had a drink at your local watering hole. These places exist because you understand their importance.
Colorado can even boast being a top winner this year. Last week, the U.S. Small Business Administration announced two women-owned firms to receive awards honoring their work in federal contracting and one is from Colorado. MedVed Global, Inc., an 8(a)-certified construction company, from Dolores, Colorado has been named the National Small Business Prime Contractor of the Year.
Research always points to the positive benefits of being in community. And with National Small Business Week here, we hope you are able to celebrate your favorite small businesses that are making a profound local impact.
Thanks for reading! We look forward to seeing you soon at Fooducopia—at the corner of Race and Kentucky Avenue in Wash Park!
