The charm is only one element of small businesses. In fact, putting more effort into frequenting small businesses can make your local economy stronger. All that aside, small businesses are notorious for having cool vibes, themes, and experiences that you just can’t get anywhere else. These four small businesses all deliver something unique and exciting.
Blacksmith Coffee, found on Westheimer Road in Houston, Texas, is a coffee house that breaks the mold. While they do sell all the typical fare, including croissants and a variety of specialty coffees, Blacksmith puts a lot of effort into crafting their coffee and menu items by hand. Other than that, nothing is the status quo. They play rock music, and every time Queen comes onto the radio, the next customer gets their drink completely free.
Royal West Martial Arts
Known throughout Utah’s Lindon and West Valley as the family that kicks together, this dojo isn’t just a small business; it’s a family business. The West family is working hard to keep it that way. They put the focus on training throughout multiple areas of life, giving their clients a complete experience. Using karate, they help people build self-discipline, cardiovascular fitness, strength, and flexibility. These goals go above and beyond your typical martial arts class.
OKRA Charity Saloon
Although not everyone is onboard with bars, everyone can support OKRA Charity Saloon as 100% of their profits go to a different cause in Houston every month. What makes this setup even better is that the patrons get to pick which charity gets the proceeds each month. Every drink that a guest purchases earns them a vote to direct the proceeds for the following month’s charity. The saloon uses a system that keeps its business open while having a much bigger impact on their local community.
Texacraft Furniture of Houston
Texcraft boasts premium outdoor and commercial patio furniture for your deck, porch or yard. These aren’t your typical run-of-the-mill lawn chairs. You get well-designed and high-quality chairs, tables, umbrellas and more. The minds behind Texacraft have crafted outdoor furniture for country clubs, casinos and high-end hotels.
Scattered all across the Western U.S., you can find a family-run or small businesses that offer something special. Explore your local area and stumble across what may become one of the coolest small businesses in the nation. You’ll quickly learn that many small businesses give charitably to their community, deliver unexpected experiences or outperform ordinary quality expectations.
