National Mom and Pop Small Business Owner Day celebrates small business owners every year on March 29th. Our economy couldn’t run without small, locally owned mom and pop businesses. Not only do they provide jobs, they also create economic growth, have positive influences on local communities, and make our communities diverse and vibrant.
Here at VITALIA Senior Residences® at Westlake, we understand these businesses spend countless hours nurturing and growing their enterprise but, all in all, they love what they do, just like we love what we do in healthcare. To celebrate National Mom and Pop Day, we had our department heads choose a small business of their liking and celebrate the day with them. They celebrated by leaving google reviews, posting about them on social media, and doing what we call a CFU, aka a Creative Follow Up. We are thankful for each of them and loved celebrating their day with them.
