Small businesses in Downtown Alameda have a huge impact on our community. They bring approximately $360,000 in sales tax revenue to the City of Alameda. This provides clean streets, visual improvements, safer neighborhoods, and many other important things.
According to a national study, one new small business annually contributes:
> $250,000 in economic activity
> $56,800 in payroll
> $8,400 in rents
> $17,000 in bank deposits
> $2,200 in bank fees
> $25,000 in State and Local Sales Tax
> $4,700 in utilities
> $6,200 in marketing and advertising
> $4,100 in professional services (insurance, legal, accounting)
> $2,700 in supplies and maintenance
But these are national averages — you can expect Alameda’s numbers to be much higher.
So, as you can see, small businesses make Alameda a better place. With that in mind, we’d like to honor the business owners that are celebrating milestone anniversaries this year… starting with the months of January and February.
Please join us in acknowledging the anniversaries of these Downtown Alameda businesses:
