POLAND, Ohio (WKBN) – Small businesses are starting to struggle as the COVID-19 situation continues but one in Poland has something to smile about.
MishMoccs found out Monday morning it had been named a finalist in the FedEx Small Business Challenge.
The contest had 13,000 applicants and MishMoccs is now among the 100 finalists.
MishMoccs now has to submit a video and FedEx will pick 12 winners in May.
“It’s all about supporting your small business,” said Micheline Thompson, owner of MishMoccs. “It’s not just a money gift. The grant consists of money. The grant has two parts — one is money and the second one is support from paying shipping expense that FedEx supports to help the winners. It really can go far for a small business like ours.”
Being picked as a finalist was a bright spot during a rough time for small businesses.
All of MishMoccs’ upcoming trade shows have been canceled.
Trying to keep business moving, MishMoccs is offering free shipping for products bought on its website.
