SBA Small Business Awards


Getting a jump on this year's National Small Business Week (May 12 - 16, 2014), the ECIDA was pleased to honor Ann Rhod's Tailoring as its Business of the Year. The award was presented at the SBA Small Business Awards held on Wed, May 7th at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center. This year is a big year for Annette Watts, owner of Ann Rhod's, who is also celebrating 20 years in business. That's  a whole lot of alterations! Back in 2010, with assistance from the ECIDA's microloan program, Ann Rhod's Tailoring was able to expand services at their 3181 Bailey Ave, Buffalo location.
