Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano will host a press conference in the City’s South Broadway Business District on Friday, May 4 at 11:15 AM at Silvio’s Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria at 351 South Broadway, to celebrate the culmination of National Small Business Week and the benefits of shopping and dining at local small businesses in the City Yonkers.
Since 1963, the President of the United States has issued a proclamation calling for the celebration of National Small Business Week. This year, National Small Business Week was recognized from April 29-May 5. More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create about two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year. There are over a dozen small businesses in Yonkers that have been in operation for 100 years or more.
