Small Businesses Met at Francescos to Voice Frustrations

francescopizzaopeningNew Jersey Assembly Majority Leader Louis Greenwald met with the NJ Main Street Alliance and fifteen small business owners (From Hoboken to LBI) Monday, in a roundtable event discussing the Economic Development Authority’s grossly mismanaged administration of the Stronger New Jersey Business Grant program.

The event, which took place at Francesco’s Italian Restaurant in Highlands, New Jersey, featured several business owners from across the state expressing serious frustrations about lengthy, unexplained delays, being bounced from caseworker to caseworker, and a lack of transparency surrounding the process.



  1. Good question Doug. Did anyone from the council and/or the HBP attend? Local business owners? Anyone have any info to share?
