About us

The Bodega and Small Business Group is a Hispanic entrepeneus that represents the interest of independent Bodegas and Small Business owners in New York.

Our store owners had the courage of opening Bodegas in areas abandoned, low income communities, as they were economically depressed and mostly minority neighborhoods.
