How It Works

1 step 1

WE FIND THE TOP BUSINESSES IN YOUR COMMUNITY

Behind every small business is a story waiting to be shared. At Little Guide®, we seek out those stories by exploring the community and engaging with local business owners. We specifially look for local businesses that add to the culture and identity of the city.

WE TELL THEIR STORY THROUGH WORDS + IMAGERY

Once we have found a story, we can’t wait to tell it. Through words and imagery we bring the small business’s story to life for all to enjoy. Through the eyes of Little Guide®, you will be inspired by their unique journeys, and love for community.

WE DISTRIBUTE THE BOOKS FREE FOR READERS

Each year, we put those stories together in our little red book called Little Guide®. We distribute the book across town for everyone to pick up and enjoy. As an added benefit, we also publish those stories on our website and social media channels.
