As we celebrate National Women’s Small Business Month, I write to proudly highlight the incredible women-owned and operated businesses that are thriving in Metro Center, in the vibrant heart of our city.
As part of the Metro Center family for over 16 years, I have been privileged to witness the extraordinary contributions of these women entrepreneurs, and I believe it is time to recognize and celebrate their achievements.
Metro Center has always been home to small businesses in Peoria, but what really stands out is that today, an impressive 40% of our vendors are women and are women-led. These women are at the forefront of innovation and determination, and their businesses are not only thriving, but making a significant impact in our local community.

Every day, these women entrepreneurs bring their unique visions to life, contributing to the vibrancy and diversity of Metro Center. From boutiques offering the latest trends to restaurants serving delicious treats, these businesses are enriching our shopping and dining experiences while creating a more inclusive and welcoming environment for all visitors.
What sets these women entrepreneurs apart is not only their commitment to their businesses, but also their role as role models for aspiring businesswomen. Their determination and unwavering dedication serve as an inspiration to others who dream of turning their passions into successful ventures. With their hard work and perseverance, they break barriers and pave new paths in the world of entrepreneurship. We look forward to seeing many more women-owned businesses take root in Metro Center in the future.
I encourage Peoria residents to support and celebrate these incredible women-owned businesses in Metro Center. By choosing to shop and dine at their locations, we can play a significant role in their ongoing success. In doing so, we not only celebrate their achievements, but also contribute to a more equitable local economy.
