There’s no better time or reason to support veteran-owned businesses than with your holiday purchasing power. With the economic fallout from COVID-19 shutdowns still affecting many small business owners, vet-owned products and services need support now more than ever. The good news is that veterans own businesses that make a slew of quality products.

The biggest obstacle to continued success for any business is access to capital. To get the money to expand offerings, grow their businesses or even just to stay afloat, businesses are looking for grants, loans and even government support to stay open. The best thing we as consumers can do to support veteran entrepreneurs is not only patronize their businesses, but to tell our friends.
