Nominees for the Shelby County 2019 Small Business of the Year in five categories will be recognized and the recipients in each category will be announced.

The event will also feature comments from Drew Ann Long. Drew Ann designed the first ever patented special needs grocery cart for children and adults with disabilities, named Caroline’s Cart.
She has changed the retail industry by addressing the lack of accessibility and inclusion in the retail world. Today, because of Caroline’s Cart, millions of families across the US and abroad can have an equal opportunity shopping experience. Caroline’s Cart has been awarded the 2013 International daVinci Award for Best Product in Mobility and Drew Ann Long was named to “THE LIST 2017” by the National Retail Foundation of People Shaping Retail’s Future.
Drew Ann has published a book, Game Changer, the Remarkable story of Caroline’s Cart, started a non-profit, and daily furthers her mission of raising awareness for accessibility, inclusion, and innovation in today’s world.
