If you're a small business owner in East Texas or are just interested in becoming one OR if you want to SUPPORT small businesses in our area then you need to join us for the Small Biz Expo At The Metro on Tuesday!

Tyler Metro Chamber

With 3 events jam packed into one busy day for small business owners, this event is all about not only celebrating the economic back bone of our community, but also the help them grow with lots of information and creating resources for our small business owners to expand!


An exciting part of the Expo is the HUB Awards Luncheon where HUB (Historically Underutilized Business) certified businesses will be recognized. The luncheon will be catered by our friends at Leelee's Catering and it will give you a chance to network with government contract purchasers and other business owners. The luncheon will also feature keynote speaker Kenya Rashard, owner of the award-winning On Track Trucking School of Arlington, TX.

Melz On The MIC recently caught up K. Rashard ahead of the Small Biz Expo At The Metro to discuss her business and the inspiration and motivation for starting a truck driving school, a mostly male dominated business. She also shares details on what she plans to speak about during the HUB Awards Luncheon. You can check out the interview inside The Melz On The MIC Podcast on the "On Demand" button inside your Kiss app.

Tickets are still available to The Small Biz Expo At The Metro's HUB Awards Luncheon for $30 by visiting themetrochamber.org.
