KC Chamber Announces 2023 Small Business Superstars

KC loves their small businesses! The Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce is excited to recognize 2,500 Small Business Superstars for 2023. 

This is the third year for the Chamber’s Small Business Superstar program. People from across the Metro submitted their favorite businesses, which will now be recognized by the Chamber as Superstars. These businesses will now have access to exclusive resources such as a digital marketing toolkit, upcoming networking opportunities, and a special window cling. Download the full list.

“The response to the Small Business Superstars program has been tremendous since day one,” said Vicky Kulikov, Small Business Director, Greater Kansas City Chamber of Commerce. “The challenges haven’t let up for these small businesses, but their resilience and creativity continue to stand out with their customers, clients, and the Chamber. It’s incredible to see them grow and find continued success in our community.” 

“Superstardom” can be a path to the KC Chamber’s Top 10 Small Businesses or even Small Business of the Year. (Just last year, three Superstars went on to be named to the Top 10.) The next steps for a Superstar to continue on in the Celebration would be to update their membership status and then submit a Small Business Awards application before March 15. 

The KC Chamber Small Business Celebration has been a business community mainstay for more than 30 years. It’s recognized as one of the largest Chamber small business celebrations in the United States. The Small Business of the Year receives the coveted Mr. K Award, named for Ewing Kauffman, entrepreneur and philanthropist. To be named Small Business of the Year signifies that a company that has shown growth or sustainability of their business with strong employee relations, a record of giving back to the community, and prioritizes diversity, equity, and inclusion.
