This season of giving, what better way to celebrate than supporting small businesses and helping your local economy. 

Cheers to the Holidays and Supporting Small Business!

How this guide works: 

Support your community.  Scroll this list to find businesses to support across California, Arizona and Nevada – from San Diego to Orange County to Riverside to Los Angeles, Oakland and Sacramento and over to Phoenix, Tucson and Las Vegas and more…

Keep it local – Take-Out, Curbside Pick-Up, Order Online.  Scroll through the guide to find the region featuring local businesses near you. You’ll then find links to their website to learn about their products and current protocol around take-out or eat in.  If you like to order ahead, look for the Order Online link.

Get it Shipped.  Many of the businesses offer shipping anywhere in the U.S.  When a business offers this service you’ll see a Get It Shipped link.  Get some for yourself or send a gift to family and friends near and far.
