City of Arlington Invites Downtown Entrepreneurs to Participate in New Small Business Initiative

There are so many reasons we love Downtown Arlington, including the entrepreneurial and creative spirit of our many small business owners. 

In celebration of that spirit, the City of Arlington recently announced a new Small Business Assistance Initiative. Through on-site displays and online promotion, the initiative will help highlight local businesses and the goods and services they offer, right here in the heart of the American Dream City.

The City of Arlington is kicking off the sponsorship program by featuring Jack's Chicken Shack

Jack's Chicken Shack

Jack’s Chicken Shack is located at 513 E. Abram Street. This popular carry-out restaurant’s specialties include Chicago-style chicken wings with lemon pepper, elotes, Italian beef sandwiches, chicken strip dinners, salads and desserts.

Jack's Chicken Shack also offers party trays. UTA students can present their current ID for a discount.

    Small Business Assistance Initiative: How to Participate

    The City’s Planning and Development Services Department is seeking to partner with 12 Downtown businesses in 2019 for their Small Business Assistance Initiative. Sponsorship opportunities are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

    • A promotion table displaying brochures/menus/flyers.
    • Acknowledgement on City’s Small Business Assistance webpage.
    • DAMC will also boost the promotion through Downtown Arlington's website and social media channels.
