Enterprise celebrated Small Business Week May 2-5, but Mayor William E. Cooper asked everyone to always patronize local businesses, especially the small businesses that provide many of the goods and services needed in daily life. In declaring Enterprise Small Business Week recently, the Mayor said small businesses create two-thirds of all new jobs for all workers, employ more than one-half of the American work force and are responsible for half the private gross domestic product.
He thanked the small business owners from Enterprise who joined him for the Small Business Week Proclamation signing April 29, recognizing them for contributing to the city’s tax base and for perpetuating the open and competitive marketplace that is vital to the nation’s free enterprise system.
With Cooper for the signing were, from left, front row, Hero, Charlotte and Abby Chancey, fans and helpers at the family coffee shop; middle row, from left, Heather Jones of Century 21; LaWanda Grill of White Oak Ale House; Enterprise Chamber of Commerce Director Erin Grantham; Mayor William E.
