Franklin Southampton Economic Development, the Franklin-Southampton Area Chamber of Commerce and the Downtown Franklin Association are collecting data from individual businesses. This information will be used to create strategic business support programs for local business assistance.

The brief survey is being conducted through a telephone call, with a representative from one of the three community organizations asking a total of 10 questions. Sample question topics include financing options, mentorship opportunities, Small Business Development Center resources, and how the individual business has made adjustments or changes to weather the disruptive economic time frame. The results will be used to create an action plan for local business assistance.

Are you a business owner interested in sharing your experience during the shutdown? Call the FSEDI office at 562-2958. Be sure to follow all three organization’s social media platforms to learn the results of the survey. We are stronger together, Franklin Southampton.
