Small Business Week 2022: How Does PPB Support Small Businesses?

Did you know that small businesses account for half of America’s workforce? In fact, more new jobs come from small businesses than from any other source. Small businesses are vital to keeping America running. 
During small business week, it is the time of year that we focus on shopping locally and small. It’s an amazing way to stay connected with your community, it also helps your neighborhood thrive and grow.   
Piroshky Piroshky is constantly investing in its community through local partnerships with vendors like Mondo & Sons, Tillamook Cheddar & Ulis’s Famous Sausage as well as supporting our neighbors through charitable initiatives like disaster relief and the Pike Place Market Foundation. 

For our meat and protein needs, we are happy to partner with Mondo & Sons – a fourth generation family-owned butcher shop and meat processor focusing on locally sourced and sustainably raised proteins. They are custom crafters of small batch artisanal hams, bacon, sausage and dry aged meats.  

For our cheese piroshky, we work with another local partner – Tillamook! Since 1909, they’ve been dedicated to making the best cheese with the best ingredients. They work with local farmers, who cared for the land, which sustained healthier cows, which provided better milk – a recipe that hasn’t failed them in over a century. We are happy to work with partners who care so deeply about their ingredients and sustainable farming practices. 

And for our Uli’s Jalapeno & Cheddar Cheese Sausage, of course, we partner up with Uli’s Famous Sausage. Our Pike Place Market neighbor and a long-time partner, Uli’s Famous Sausage is locally owned and operated by German Master Butcher Uli Lengenberg, with over 40 years of experience in sausage production. Uli’s Famous Sausage is made daily from the best cuts of meat, the finest in-house blended spices, and, most importantly, with love for their craft and customers.   

Every day, we are proud to work with various local partners and small businesses all around the Pacific Northwest. It is of the utmost importance for us to continue contributing to the small business community in our region.
