National Black Business Month In Action: Your Local Dry Cleaner

The BCN in highlighting National Black Business Month will provide  suggestions to focus on our Black-owned businesses.

This week consider taking your clothes to a neighborhood dry cleaner.

A Buffalo Profile:
If young black entrepreneurs in Buffalo, NY wanted an inspiring and successful example of what it is to build a business legacy, they only have to look in their own backyard.  Mr. Walter Hobson, the owner of  Hobsons One Hour Dry Cleaning & Tailoring, exemplifies  the spirit of entrepreneurship. His  story provides a glimpse of what  is required to build a successful business legacy.  In 2005, the BCN interviewed Mr. Hobson for our Economic Empowerment Conference Magazine.  Walter Hobson Business Q&A

I also recall a 2003 Buffalo News article featuring the BCN Economic Empowerment Conference.  The following was written about Mr. Hobson’s views on the importance of hard work  and perseverance.

In his early years with his Laundromat and dry-cleaning businesses, he’d work from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., seven days a week, as he built a thriving business. “My grandfather taught me, if you need help, roll up your sleeve,” he said. “If you need more help, roll up your other sleeve.”
