America's 28 million small businesses create two out of every three new private sector jobs, according to the U.S. Small Business Administration. Half of working Americans either own or work for a small business.

Small Business Saturday was founded by American Express in 2010, and is now celebrated each year on the Saturday after Thanksgiving.
