Small Business Saturday is a day dedicated to supporting local businesses and communities across the country. Initiated by American Express in 2010, we celebrate this day each year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Since beginning in 2010, consumers have reported spending an estimated $103 billion across all Small Business Saturdays combined.
Because you’re a consumer, you’re a vital part of helping small businesses thrive. By shopping, dining or supporting local shops in your community, you’re showing support for the businesses in your neighborhood and in the community you call your own.
In the spirit of Small Business Saturday, we turn our attention to our community friends and businesses:
Mama Bev’s Bakery, located in Hales Corners, WI. Home of the St. Louis Butter Cake. Commonly referred to as “ooey gooey buttercake”, this dessert is a wonderful combination of taste and texture. A two-layer dessert that combines the best features of cheesecake and white cake.
