Burgers’ Smokehouse was honored on the U.S. Senate floor Wednesday, May 8, 2019, as the Small Business of the Day during 2019 National Small Business Week. National Small Business Week is set aside by the President to honor America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners. As part of the celebration, their recognition was recorded on the Official Congressional record and an American flag was flown over the capitol in their honor.
“We are honored by the recognition and are appreciative of the opportunity to have a thriving small business in this country and the state of Missouri,” said Steven Burger, President of Burgers’ Smokehouse. “When our family business began in 1927, I don’t think my grandfather knew the potential for economic growth for both our family and the community we live in,” expanded Burger.
Today, Daniel Hartman, State Director for the Office of Senator Josh Hawley, and Ray Bozarth, Deputy State Director for the Office of Senator Josh Hawley, presented the team at Burgers’ Smokehouse with the official minutes from the Congressional record, and Morgan Corder, Staff Assistant for the Office of Senator Roy Blunt, presented the flag flown over the U.S. Capitol.
