[Podcast] Thryv Foundation Grant Recipients Bounce Back

Earlier this year, Thryv Foundation provided three rounds of funds to recipients of its Small Business COVID-19 Grant Program in hopes of keeping dozens of businesses afloat.

In the latest episode of the “Winning on Main Street” podcast, we catch up with three business owners we met in the spring of this year when the pandemic hit — Dave Riddell of Big Frog Custom T-Shirts, Ricardo Picon of The Sandwich Shop and Rachel Bowers of Brooklyn Bark. All applied for and received Thryv Foundation grants.

A Sneak Peek

Have we had to make adjustments? Yes, but having enough to get through to the other side is a very thankful experience.

More of what you can expect to hear:

  • How Big Frog Custom T-Shift mentally shifted gears to navigate through COVID.
  • What’s in the works for this coming year at The Sandwich Shop as they shift to having a licensee.
  • How Brooklyn Bark employees used volunteering and created programs to stay present in the community.
