Supported Small Businesses

Neighborhood Cookin, LLC., is a small business food manufacturer of Papa Bruce's brand BBQ Sauce that supports other small businesses. 

I have decided to add small businesses to my website to offer support, especially during these very trying times. Lots of small businesses' revenue is dependent on communicating directly with the public; whether it's to sell or show their products at tradeshows, farmers markets or just by networking face to face. If these avenues aren't available, then we need to find ways to support each other. 

On this page, you will find small businesses that I have personally worked with or purchased from and have received great customer service as well as received a great product. 

Please embrace the small business community below as this is definitely difficult times for all of us.

Lip Esteem

THIS YOUNG LADY EXEMPLIFIES THE MEANING OF A GROWING SMALL BUSINESS. 

https://lipesteem.com/

Lip Esteem is a plant based, cruelty-free, paraben-free and gluten-free cosmetic line that was launched in Minnesota by the founder, Tameka Jones right in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. As a young person like many of us, Tameka had some self esteem issues . She was teased daily and she would try to conceal her full lips, which of course was impossible. When Tameka became older, she realized how beautiful her full African features were. It's like she went from a caterpillar to a butterfly.
