Use GOOD Spots to Find and Share the Best Small Businesses

This post is brought to you by GOOD, with support from UPS. We’ve teamed up to bring you the Small Business Collaborative, a series sharing stories about innovative small businesses that are changing business as usual for their communities and beyond. Learn how UPS is helping small businesses here.

As you look around your town or city, what types of small businesses and mom-and-pop stores do you see? Chances are, you have more in your area than you think (according to the latest Small Business Association survey, there were 27.9 million small businesses in the United States) and the number is continuing to grow as new business creation outpaces closures.

To celebrate these small businesses and the value they bring to their communities, we're excited to announce the launch of GOOD Spots, an interactive map for the GOOD community to share and find the best small companies. So whether you want to try a new coffee shop, or have one you think is worth raving about, we want you to join us in celebrating local businesses. It's easy to search and share by location, category and name to find and spread the word about small businesses in your area—or even the next place you plan to visit.

Join us on GOOD Spots and help us find and support the small businesses that everyone should know about.

  • The Future Of The Toilet In the latest installment of our Half-Baked Design Challenge, we gave some of our most creative friends 30 minutes to redesign the toilet. Their solutions are at once absurd, profound, and probably not the answer to all our problems, so we also rounded up the fully-baked ideas at the forefront of this global sanitation issue.

  • Ten Brazilians Outside Brazil on Being Brazilian The 2014 World Cup in Brazil has shined a giant light on the people of the South American nation of almost 200 million. But, since the early 80’s, the people of Brazil have increasingly been living outside the borders of what is still the fifth largest country on earth. Emigration has increased exponentially.
