The Northwest Arkansas Diversity Resource Guide is dedicated to making sure that all community members from diverse populations have the information and resources they need to both acclimate to the region and take advantage of its rich array of offerings.
As we enter into another new year, it’s important to continue to support small businesses in our local community. These businesses provide jobs, boost the economy and give character to our neighborhoods.
To kick off 2023, we’ve rounded up and added five small businesses that can help you make this year the best one yet. Looking to add a little adventure to your palette? Getting ready to close on a new home? Ready to get active? These businesses have got you covered. We’ve even included some sample New Year’s Resolutions in case you need some (very) last-minute inspiration.
Bites and Bowls
New Year’s Resolution: Eat waffles for breakfast at least twice a week.
Bites and Bowls is a small, family-owned eatery in Springdale. Swing by for some of the most creative waffle dishes you’ve ever tasted, and then come back to try the rest of the menu. Join their loyalty program for even more savings. (Oh, and are you looking for a hearty meal to share with your family at home? Check out their weekly dinner bundles.)
New Year’s Resolution: Clean my carpets with something stronger than my vacuum from 2010.
It’s time to finally do a deep clean. HandyFam offers local cleaning services for your house or business. They were even named as a Nextdoor 2022 Neighborhood Favorite!
Precision Martial Arts
New Year’s Resolution: Develop mental toughness, emotional discipline and a love for colored belts.
Precision Martial Arts in Springdale specializes in character-building for kids and fitness for adults. By providing classes in martial arts for adults of all ages, Precision provides a great way to move your body while supporting small business owners who are passionate about their livelihood.
Get It Done Moving Services
New Year’s Resolution: Move into a new house without picking up any boxes.
It’s time to leave the stress of moving behind — let someone else Get It Done. These five-star movers strive to serve our community as it continues to grow and shift. They support those who are moving to Northwest Arkansas for the first time and those who have been here their entire lives.
New Year’s Resolution: Regain my sense of smell that I lost in 2020.
Take a deep breath and embrace the joy of a fresh start. After a booming 2022, Aroma Ave continues to grow and their soaps, salts and other luxury bath products can be found in shops throughout Northwest Arkansas.
