Small Business of the Month

Your contributions are powerful indeed. This recognition lets you and everyone else know that your efforts are worthwhile.

Each month, this distinction is given to a Greater Omaha small business, with 50 or fewer employees. This business excels in more areas than one – pride in their business, top-notch customer service and an enviable work culture, to name a few.

The recipient is saluted by the Chamber’s board of director’s and featured on our website.
