Mike Anderson, NSBC Founder and CEO, says that Breakfast Connect will provide the perfect platform to create more awareness of the growing SBF movement: “We are proud to celebrate seven years of SBF and are passionate about supporting local small businesses every day, and especially on Small Business Friday - the first Friday of Spring every year."

The impact of these entrepreneurs cannot be under-estimated, and we need to band together to develop and grow our national community of small business,” says Anderson.
