Running any business is not for the faint of heart.  One of the most intriguing bright spots in the WesTen District is the list of multi-generational, long term businesses.  At last count, we have documented over 23 business with over 25 years of providing their services and products.  

At least 5: Cardinal Pools, Miller Floors, Minick Materials, Precure Nursery, and Smith Farm & Garden; have successfully been doing business with third and fourth generations for over 60 years. Three more businesses have been operating in the WesTen District for over 50 years: Allied Glass, Connelley Paving, and Nix Lumber. 

Considering a third of small businesses (with 500 or less employees) fail in the first 5 years, that is quite amazing.  They must be doing something right.  Congratulations!
