On June 23rd, National Family-Owned and Operated Business Day is a momentous occasion that recognizes the vital role played by family businesses in our economy and communities. At BEX®, being a family-owned business is the foundation of our identity and fuels our passion for excellence.
How you can support family-owned businesses:
Family-owned and operated businesses are the backbone of our economy and hold a special place in our communities. On National Family-Owned & Operated Businesses Day, we have an opportunity to show our support and make a positive impact. Here are a few ways you can empower these remarkable enterprises:
Shop Local: Choose family-owned businesses when making purchases. By patronizing more neighborhood establishments, you contribute directly to their growth and success.
Spread the Word: Your recommendations can go a long way in attracting new customers and helping these businesses thrive by sharing your positive experiences through word-of-mouth, social media, or online reviews.
Engage with the Community: By directly attending and engaging local events, farmers' markets, or fairs where family-owned businesses participate, you can learn more about their story, products, and services, fostering a deeper connection.
Collaborate and Partner: If you are a business owner yourself, consider collaborating or partnering with family-owned enterprises. By working together, you can create mutually beneficial relationships that promote growth and support the local economy.
Offer Feedback and Suggestions: Providing constructive feedback to family-owned businesses can help them refine their offerings and enhance customer experiences, contributing to their long-term success.
Choose Services and Suppliers Wisely: When seeking professional services or suppliers, prioritize working with family-owned businesses. By doing so, you support their growth and foster a diverse and vibrant business ecosystem.

A word from BEX®'s President Jason Adams:
"As a third-generation entrepreneur in the family-owned business realm, I can honestly say that I know no other way. But in many discussions over the years with friends, colleagues, and respected mentors, it seems without a doubt that operating a family-owned business goes much deeper than just a transactional relationship with clients.
Memories are made, families grow stronger, and teaching the next generation takes on a whole new meaning for the future success of an organization. I am grateful to have learned from my father, his father before him, their dedicated spouses who worked the business, and my family that I now work shoulder to shoulder with each and every day. They are my best friends and most trusted confidants.
The close relationship we share is not common; it is deep, real, and authentic — forged through many years of failure and success, frustration and joy — all the while charging forward together as a family. Encouraging and maintaining a culture of accountability, work ethic, integrity, compassion, and strong relationships is an example my father set years ago and serves as a timeless guiding principle in building a strong family-owned business."
