Today a colleague and I were working on photos for his presentation on Better Direct as a HUBZone company. A HUBZone is a historically underutilized business zone designated by the Small Business Administration of the United States.
Better Direct operates in Tempe’s historical Creamery District, which was one of the first settlements of the city. The original dairy farm grew so large that a rail road was established running right past the structure. This helped to furnish other industries and soon the first garage and gas station was built. Before long the city of Tempe had a booming economy and hard-working family spirit.
This tradition carries on today in the city and though the economy is not what it used to be, the spirit of a hard working society remains. Better Direct is committed to doing our part to contribute to the economy. Many of the employees here live within a mile of the office and bike or carpool to work. We believe in staying true to the history of our culture, and we believe that by working hard for our customers we hope to continue to contribute to the economic growth of the area.
If you are wondering why it is important to consider HUBZone companies in your procurement, remember that you are doing more than meeting a quota when buying from a HUBZone, you are helping to create jobs and stimulate economic growth.
