Small Business Promotion Week

We know small businesses and entrepreneurs like you help make Arlington: The American Dream City the vibrant, thriving community that nearly 400,000 people are proud to call home today. And we want more of our residents to know about all that you do!

That’s why the City of Arlington is seeking to highlight minority-owned and/or women-owned small businesses throughout 2022. Starting in March, the iCARE Ambassador Team with the City’s Planning and Development Services Department will host a Small Business Promotion Week, once a month, in partnership with Arlington’s own Canales Furniture.

Why should you consider participating? The sponsoring team leaders will have a meet and greet with the selected business for that month in their facility to learn about their business. The business will be highlighted in an article on the City’s website,, and social media accounts, both which are viewed by thousands of visitors each day. We invite businesses to share their feature article on their own websites and social media accounts to help promote the great work they do in our city.

During Small Business Promotion Week, the City will display a banner with the highlighted company’s information on a refreshment table in the One Start Development Center at City Hall. We also invite these selected businesses to provide promotional items, such as business cards, menus, flyers, or other advertisements to be placed on the table for City Hall visitors.
Don’t delay! Businesses will be selected on a first-come, first-serve basis and we only have 10 spots available. If you are a minority-owned or women-owned business and you are interested in being highlighted during a Small Business Promotion Week, please contact [email protected] for more information.
