Public Vote to Crown America’s Most Unique Small Business Underway
Small businesses represent nearly 95 percent of all U.S. employers, and as such, play an integral role in the economy. But, their impact is felt well beyond their economic power. They are incubators of innovation, providing unique products and services that advance society and meet consumer demand in new and exciting ways every day. Today, in recognition of this week’s Small Business Saturday, Paychex, Inc., a leading provider of payroll, HR, retirement, and insurance services for small- and mid-sized businesses, is shining a spotlight on that innovation by launching its search for America’s Most Unique Small Business.
“Small Business Saturday kicks off one of the most important times of the year for U.S. small businesses, and we’re proud to recognize those who help fuel our economic engine in a unique way,” said Martin Mucci, president and CEO of Paychex. “Over the next six weeks, we’re asking the public to vote and ultimately choose America’s Most Unique Small Business.”
Out of hundreds of submissions, Paychex selected 32 finalists that will go head-to-head in a bracket-style contest. The first round of public voting begins today, November 20. Four rounds of voting will cover six weeks and culminate in a holiday championship showdown. After a two-week final round, December 23 through January 5, America’s Most Unique Small Business will be announced the week of January 8.
