The Coronavirus pandemic has hit the economy very hard, especially small businesses. It has also been observed that black small business owners have been affected more negatively than their white counterparts. With this in mind, here are ten small black owned businesses you can support during this pandemic.


  • The Cooler Sno-Balls- This is a business in North Omaha that serves shaved ice covered in handmade syrups. These syrups are made with pure cane sugar, spring water, and no high fructose corn syrup or preservatives. Expect a gummy bear to be included with every sno-ball you receive, as they open again this upcoming 2021 year.
