From the Mayor - INFOCUS - November 2012

We appreciate and support all of our Goodyear businesses. Spending money within our city helps to pay for things like police and fire protection, streets, water, parks and much more.

We all get excited when a large, recognizable business decides to come to Goodyear. We love these large employers, but it has always been the local shops and restaurants that have made Goodyear go.

There are currently over 600 small businesses in Goodyear. Longstanding small businesses like Goodale True Value Hardware are an important part of our history, while new locally-owned businesses continue to find success and pave the way for our future.

To help strengthen our relationship with our small business community, we created Small Business Roundtables. Each roundtable focuses on a certain category of business, with the most recent featuring locally-owned “Mom and Pop” restaurants.

During the roundtable, several of our local restaurant owners expressed their desire to showcase their unique products. Establishments like Caballero Grill, Oasis Bagels, Dino’s Greek and Italian Grill and Starpointe Café were represented at the meeting. Each of them are proud of the work that goes into their unique menu options and are excited to share their original creations with the residents of Goodyear.

Shopping and dining at small and locally-owned businesses can have a particularly significant impact because it means more money recirculates throughout the community instead of being sent out of our area.

Did you know that for every $100 spent at a local business, $73 stays in the city? When you spend your money at small, local businesses you are investing in your neighborhoods and your community.

We will continue to partner with our Goodyear
businesses and I encourage all of you to strengthen our community by shopping and dining at our local businesses.
