Small businesses are the driving force of the American economy. I am always trying to support and promote small businesses in and around Southeastern Ohio. I recently found out about a great documentary being put out by Deluxe that shows the greatness of the American small business spirit.
it seems like lately we are less likely to use small businesses and more likely to use big and impersonal online companies. We are no longer involved in the personal experience of a small business but instead looking for fast and easy.

Enjoying a Great Hamburger from Jimmy’s Jawbreakers.
I have an unwritten rule when it comes to sandwiches, that is simply the messier it is the better it is. Well it must be true because Jimmy's Jawbreaker is one of the best hamburgers I have ever had.
When I first heard about Jimmy's I thought "A food truck! How good could it be?" But I have to say that they proved my skepticism wrong in so many ways. One reason for my skepticism was that in Southeastern Ohio if you don't work in or have a lot reason to go to large cities your only dealings with a food truck are the ones that you have during fairs and carnivals. You don't really have access to some of the gourmet food that are sold in food trucks in those cities.
One of the things that makes these burgers so great is that Jimmy's uses fresh meat from Bay's Packing House right here in Lancaster. They do not use frozen or preformed patties. The other is the wonderful home made sauce that they use. This sauce is so good that people actually want to purchase it to use at home and they oblige them buy selling it. It doesn't hurt that they use fresh vegetables and sesame seed rolls.

When you shop local you are not helping a CEO get a new Volvo or a new house. You are helping a family put it's children through school, you are helping with tuition, you are helping the local economy. For every $100 you spend at locally owned businesses, $68 will stay in the community. Local businesses are better at creating higher-paying jobs for your neighbors. When you shop locally, you help create jobs for teachers, firemen, police officers, and many other essential professions. Creativity and entrepreneurship are what the American economy is founded upon. Nurturing local business ensures a strong community. The more interesting and unique you community, the more we will attract new neighbors, visitors and guests. This benefits everyone! (source)
