Card Lock Company Commemorates National Veterans Small Business Week

It’s estimated 2.5 million small businesses in the United States are owned and operated by veterans.

As ardent supporters of current service members and veterans for the freedoms that all of us enjoy today, Card Lock Company is pleased to honor National Veterans Small Business Week (NVSBW) – the annual event designed to empower veteran-owned businesses in the week leading up to Veterans Day – from Monday, November 2 to Friday, November 6.

National Veterans Small Business Week

Now in its seventh year, National Veterans Small Business Week is intended to connect and empower veteran-owned businesses in communities across the country by highlighting the breadth of resources they’re able to offer and the services consumers are able to attain from them. This year’s theme is “Resources in Your Community,” which is designed to bring greater awareness of such businesses in your town or city.

Card Lock’s Founders are Veterans from World War II

Card Lock Company’s founders are World War II combat veterans, and the business is still owned and operated by the same family that launched it some 70 years ago. To say that active military members and veterans are near and dear to our heart would be an understatement. In fact, we initially developed our signature “card key” for veteran facilities like social halls and VFWs so they could have a safe and secure place to gather after returning home from war. It’s a big part of the reason why we’re proud to raise awareness for and support events such as National Veterans Small Business Week.

For more information on National Veterans Small Business Week, please visit the official page of the U.S. Small Business Administration. Let us know on Facebook how you plan to support a vet-owned business this year.

At Card Lock, our commitment to honoring and supporting those who served and sacrificed for our country runs deep. Founded in the 1940s by veterans to provide security solutions for veteran-focused fraternal organizations and clubs, making a positive impact in veterans’ lives has been in Card Lock’s DNA for over 70 years. Today, many eligible veterans never apply for the benefits and compensation they are entitled to—which is why we encourage all veterans to visit Veterans Guide, a comprehensive online resource to help you obtain all of the benefits you are owed for your service.
