After a successful kick-off event on January 19, Duncan School of Law student and community activist, Daniel Herrera, invites you to attend the second monthly “Small Business Saturday” initiative to support small businesses all-around Knox County. The initiative aims to support businesses by inviting residents to meet for lunch at restaurants to push for community growth.


The first “Small Business Saturday” event had a packed house at Nick & J’s family diner, located in West Knoxville. Residents flooded the restaurant all throughout the hour and a half the event was scheduled.


“Our first event was an absolute hit,” Herrera said. “We had a packed house and we plan on using this momentum to keep growing. Our local businesses are the backbone to our community and they always step up with we need them. Now, it’s for us to support them.”


The second event will take place Saturday, February 23 from 12 p.m. – 1 p.m. at Sam & Andy’s in Fountain City, located at 2613 Adair Dr., Knoxville, TN, 37918.
