From mom-and-pop stores on Main Street to global conglomerates, Tennessee businesses are the lifeblood of our local economy. To pay tribute to them and help promote their products and services, the Secretary of State's office is launching a new section on its web site dedicated to our state's businesses. The new feature, which debuts today, is called Tennessee Business Spotlight.
"The Volunteer State hosts a rich blend of businesses and our goal is to raise awareness about companies that contribute to their local communities and employ Tennesseans," Secretary of State Tre Hargett said. "I believe that many Tennesseans will be surprised and proud of the great work and innovative products Tennessee companies provide to the nation and the world."
Companies doing business in Tennessee are generally required to register with the Secretary of State's office. Each year, the office processes more than 730,000 transactions involving those businesses. Tennessee Business Spotlight will highlight selected companies, with summaries of what they do, photos, contact information and links to their Internet and social media sites.

In recognition of "National Chocolate Month" as well as Valentine's Day, February's theme will be "Tennessee's Sweets & Treats," showcasing the state's confectioners and candy producers.
