#NationalSmallBusinessWeek: Our ATL favorites

This post was originally published on this site

Though they are small — small businesses are a big deal. According to the United States Small Business Administration (SBA), more than 50 percent of Americans either own or work for a small business. The SBA also notes that small businesses create about 2 out of 3 new jobs in the U.S. each year, powering our economy.

We love small businesses here at CallRail — and we’re so proud to build software that helps them grow and make their dreams a reality. In honor and celebration of National Small Business Week, we rounded up a list of some of our favorite small businesses in our beloved hometown.

Hell Yeah Gluten Free!

Location: Inman Park Neighborhood of Atlanta, GA 


Follow @hellyeahglutenfree!

Why Team CallRail loves it: 

Alejandra gave up her prestigious job as an engineer at a top-rated Atlanta tech company, took her life savings, and started her own passion project! She and her team make eating gluten-free not only a pleasure but a memorable experience! With exotic and unique flavors, beautiful presentation, and an amazing smile, Hell Yeah Gluten Free provides a bakery unlike any other in Atlanta.”

– Rachel Ward, Partner Marketing Manager   

Highland Row Antiques

Location: Poncey-Highland Neighborhood of Atlanta, GA 


Follow @highlandrowantiques! 

Why Team CallRail loves it: 

I’ve gotten my favorite pieces in my apartment from Highland Row Antiques. Their antiques range from tiny knick-knacks to full armoires to quirky vintage artwork. It’s hard to just browse; I always end up leaving with some antique in tow.”

– Bridget Graf, Product Marketing Manager 

Novo Cucina

Location: Dunwoody, GA


Follow @novocucina_atl!

Why Team CallRail loves it: 

Our friends and neighbors own this amazing Italian restaurant. Awesome homemade pasta and pizza, great service. Best gelato outside of Italy!”

– Jason Rozenblat, VP of Sales

King of Pops

Location: Inman Park Neighborhood of Atlanta, GA (and more!)


Follow @kingofpops!

Why Team CallRail loves it: 

Most locals know King of Pops. Over the years, they’ve maintained their ice cream cart street cred by limiting growth and investing in the community. They can be found at festivals, concerts, grocery stores, and bar mitzvahs and are a special part of what makes our city great.”

– Josh Baker, Design Studio Lead

Local Green Atlanta

Location: Vine City Neighborhood of Atlanta, GA


Follow @localgreenatlanta!

Why Team CallRail loves it: 

Local Green Atlanta is more than a healthy fast food spot. It’s a black-owned public health initiative. Their mission is to reduce health disparities in underserved populations by providing healthier food choices to communities who need it most. It’s lovingly nestled on the Westside of Atlanta in Vine City—one of Atlanta’s most overlooked and underserved communities. They employ students from neighboring Booker T. Washington High School in efforts of offering access to healthier environments. And, they partner with local farmers for their ingredients to support local commerce. From the “Bad & Boujee” Tuna Wrap to the “My Mayor’s Name is Keisha” Quinoa Salad, their pescatarian, vegetarian and vegan options pay hommage to our beloved city!”

– Amber Guidry, Social Media Specialist  


Location: Founded in Atlanta, online!


Follow @ienrichher!

Why Team CallRail loves it: 

EnrichHER offers access to funding, conferences, and educational resources for women-owned businesses. They’re bridging gaps between investors and small businesses and aiming to create major shifts in the economy.”

– Dedra Mitchell, Content Specialist 

Plant Based Pizzeria

Location: Virginia Highland Neighborhood of Atlanta, GA


Follow @plantbasedpizzeria!

Why Team CallRail loves it: 

Plant Based Pizzeria is a black-owned business that specializes in amazing 100% plant-based foods including pizzas, calzones, burgers, and classic desserts. My favorite pizza is the Georgia Peach! They also have gluten-free options! I highly recommend trying them out!”

– Hannah Bulmash, Content Marketing Intern 

Good Kitchen + Market

Location: Cherokee Heights Arts District in Marietta, GA


Follow @goodkitchenandmarket!

Why Team CallRail loves it:

“Good is a bit modest with its name. Truth be told, the food is actually great. They have a whole bunch of rotating, nutrient-dense dishes and plenty of options for vegetarians and vegans, and they’re open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner Monday-Saturday. I have two personal favorite aspects of this restaurant: 1) their wine program is abbreviated, but excellently natural and biodynamic and 2) their kids menu is probably the best I’ve ever seen, with clever games and books –– not just printer-paper color sheets –– to boot.”

– Jules Tompkins, Content and Communications Manager

No matter what you enjoy, there’s always a way for you to support a small business. From that family-owned laundromat up the street to the Etsy shop next door, full of cute trinkets you love — shop small! We hope you’ll give some of our favorites a try if you’re ever in town. Happy Small Biz Week!
