Small Business is Respected and Supported by TCD

female shop ownerTwin Cities Economic Development works hard to support its small businesses, in part by encouraging residents to shop where they live. Shopping locally keeps tax revenue and jobs in our Western Nebraska Panhandle. Small businesses have created 66 percent of all new jobs over the past 25 years, fueling employment growth.

Tax revenue generated by these booming businesses are used to fix streets, provide upkeep, and support day-to-day operations. National statistics show that for every dollar spent at a small business, 67 cents stays within the local economy. In addition to helping schools and other organizations through tax revenue, small businesses are often the ones that support local youth sports teams, charities, and events.
