South Carolina’s small and family-owned businesses form the backbone of its thriving economy, yet their voices often go unheard in policy decisions. Recognizing this gap, the Mom and Pop Alliance (MAPA) was created, a champion for these businesses, led by founder and business owner Diane Hardy. MAPA strives to unite these enterprises, providing a powerful platform to engage with the state government effectively.
Empowering Small Business Owners: An Invitation to Make a Difference
The Mom and Pop Alliance invites you to support their advocacy and be part of a transformative movement by becoming a member or a “Friend to Mom and Pop.” This support helps sustain their essential work, advocating for small business owners and fostering free-market principles and entrepreneurship across South Carolina. Diane Hardy, the founder, emphasizes, “Your support of the Mom and Pop Alliance will help us to inform and advocate on behalf of small businesses and their owners throughout our state.”
