Burlington County is continuing its Small Business Workshop Series next month with a program on how to run a successful business and analyze profitability.
The workshop is being organized by the Burlington County Commissioners and Burlington County Bridge Commission’s Department of Economic Development in partnership with TD Bank. It will be held on Wednesday, July 12, from 10 AM to noon at the Evesham Library, 984 Tuckerton Road, Marlton.
The free class is open to Burlington County business owners and proprietors, as well as county residents who are interested in starting a new business or expanding into the county.
More than 900 new businesses registered with the Burlington County Clerk’s Office the last four years, which shows that people want to do business in Burlington County.
“Burlington County is a premier destination for businesses to locate and grow and we want to continue to help our existing businesses and new ones find success,” said Burlington County Commissioner Director Felicia Hopson, the liaison to Economic Development. “When our local businesses do well, our communities thrive along with our residents and their families. It’s why we’re thrilled to partner with the Bridge Commission and TD Bank to make these kind of informative workshops available.”
“The best run businesses are the ones that are the most informed and the Small Business Workshop Series is designed to give business owners and operators information that can help them and their businesses succeed and grow,” added Burlington County Bridge Commission Chairman Matt Riggins. “It’s a great economic development tool and we’re encouraging business owners to sign up and attend.”

The class is the third in the County’s workshop series. The first two classes were held in March and April and covered basics of financing and how to write a business plan.
The Burlington County Commissioners and Bridge Commission also partnered with Rowan College at Burlington County to hold the county’s first Small Business Resource Fair featuring representatives from various state and county government departments and agencies and business groups.
The Burlington County Commissioners also promote local small businesses through the Shop Burlington County First initiatives and Restaurant Week initiatives. More than 300 businesses have been spotlighted on the County’ social media pages during the last two years.
“Small businesses are essential to Burlington County’s economy and the county’s communities. They employ our neighbors, family members and friends and are often the first to step forward to assist local youth and civic organizations,” said Burlington County Commissioner Deputy Director Tom Pullion. “Holding these small business workshops is another way we can help businesses in our county to grow and to encourage new ones to open and expand here.”
