Family owned and locally operated that is something we hear often to describe business. What does that mean and why is it important? In general, a family owned business is a small business. A mom and Pop store as it is known. It is run by family members related by Blood or marriage. The family members are involved in all of the decision-making aspects of the business. The business is usually passed down from generation to generation. A mom and pop store operate in the local area because that is where they live and grew up. Why is this important? Who knows or cares about the neighborhood more than those who live there? Neighborhoods are made up of the people who live and work in an area.

Lake County Indiana is a county in the northern most part of the state. It is so named because of its location to lake Michigan. It is also considered part of the Chicago Metropolitan area. Established on February 16, 1837, Lake county was originally settled by Potawatomi Indians. The population started to grow in the 1850’s with the expansion of the railroad linking Chicago to the rest of the world. The original county seat was in Liverpool until Lake court house later renamed crown point was chosen in 1840. The arrival of steel companies such as U.S Steel in Gary Indiana in 1906, aided in the population explosion.
