Lawndale Means Business to new entrepreneurs, looking for resources and information as they expand their ventures.
Businesses like Covenant Catering, started by Aaron and Martice Gray. Started out of their home, Covenant Catering has been growing by leaps and bounds, mostly by word of mouth. From wedding receptions to 3 day conferences, Aaron and Martice's sparkling presentation of a diverse and delicious menu is rapidly becoming a full time business for both of them.
Or Charles and Alicia Landrum, who see an opportunity to build into the local economy of Lawndale by providing jobs through a retail fashion store, and self-designed clothing line. They also reach out to the community by teaching entrepreneurial skills and financial basics to young men and women who dream of owning their own businesses one day.
Lawndale Means Business also works to bring established businesses to the neighborhood.
We work with local banks, government, and business leaders to identify opportunities that will engage these already developed businesses, grow the commercial tax base of the community, and provide local jobs for the thousands of area residents who are looking for work.
There is no shortage of creativity, hard work and passion in this neighborhood. What Lawndale Means Business provides is a path toward long-term success by building relationships between Lawndale entrepreneurs and a wide ranging network of business planners, coaches, financial and informational resources, marketing professionals, and more.
