May to celebrate small business

COLUMBUS — Secretary of State Jon Husted has announced May as “Main Street Ohio” Month.

“In almost every city or small town, there’s a business that provides pride and joy in that community,” Secretary Husted said. “Fortunately, many of these businesses have been around for a long time and they help create generational memories for many families in our state.”

In January, Secretary Husted announced that 2017 was a record-breaking year for new businesses formed in the Buckeye State. This marks the eighth consecutive year Ohio has seen a record number of new entities file to set up shop.
