There was a celebration of diversity in businesses across the city of Memphis Thursday, all while trying to attract new ones.
The city Office of Business Diversity and Compliance hosted a customer appreciation day downtown. It’s recognizing entrepreneurs and small businesses that have utilized vital information offered by the office to help them grow and succeed.
The city hopes events like this will encourage more businesses to try out its resources.
The center provides a number of services including training and one-on-one counseling. It’s open daily from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at 555 Beale Street.
