In Celebration of Local Business in Downtown Alameda

Small businesses in Downtown AlamedaPark Street Plaza, 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

Speisekammer, Alameda> $39,500 in loan demand

> $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.
