A majority of local businesses owners surveyed by The Alternative Board of San Antonio reported seeing record sales, record profits or both in 2014.
Two-thirds of respondents, 50 of 73 business owners, had a positive experience for the year.
In addition, those reporting said they added 462 new employees during 2014.
“These are successful business people who have made a conscious decision to focus on building their companies, draw on other entrepreneurs for help, and be aggressive in their planning,” said John Dini, local facilitator for The Alternative Board.
“Small businesses don’t make the news because they only create two or three new jobs at a time,” Dini said, “but their combined impact makes a big contribution to San Antonio’s economy.”
The Alternative Board is a national organization of business owners who meet monthly in small groups to help each other be more successful. The San Antonio chapter was founded in 1997.
