Cut from the Same Cloth: Boston-Area Tailors Spring from Familial Roots

Tailor shops are almost universally small businesses, and many are family-run. The singular importance of referrals allows them to exist for generations without so much as spending the equivalent of a piece of Hancock’s chalk on advertising, while other businesses on the same block can fail despite the best laid promotional schemes of computer mice and admen.

Cementing a Legacy with Deveney & White Memorials

Most people don’t spend too much time thinking about the details of a cemetery headstone for a loved one until they are faced with the solemn responsibility of doing so. It’s often a very difficult and emotionally trying time, and there are a lot of factors to consider – type of stone, shape, size, font, special effects, etc. That’s where Elizabeth Deveney of Deveney & White Memorials comes in to help. 

Family-Owned Funeral Homes Provide a Guide through Grief While Celebrating Life

Our relationship with death changed and continues to evolve thanks to modern-day funeral directors like Reid McHoul, Jim Delaney, Tim Keefe and the businesses started by their grandfathers. All three are now the third generation in their family’s businesses, whose respective legacies were built by intimately understanding the needs and desires of families coping with the death of a loved one. 

Business Environment Generally Bright in 2017

Following the most unorthodox election in American history, for business owners throughout the nation and especially in Massachusetts, the stars seem to have aligned coming into 2017. With a new president branded as overtly business friendly and more importantly a booming local economy, those on the front lines supporting small and family-owned businesses agree that morale is high among executives.

“We use the FBA frequently to update ourselves with the local community, surrounding happenings that we can be a part of or help with and we also utilize the service guide directory to match up with services that assist us in a number of things. I am always excited when something matches exactly what we need at the time we are looking.” “I also know that I can trust the companies that advertise with the FBA because like us, they are most likely family businesses themselves and we like to work with fellow family businesses.”

The Family Business Association Awards for Massachusetts

The awards were envisioned as a way to celebrate and recognize the successes of Greater Boston’s many family-owned businesses. From those just starting out to those who have farmed the same land for more than a hundred years, the awards recognize the grit and determination necessary to launch and build a business with family, and to keep that legacy going through subsequent generations.
