Dear AAPI Small Business Owners,
You’ve been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in ways that aren’t always visible to policymakers. By taking a 10-minute survey, you can help make clear how the pandemic has impacted you and small businesses like yours. Let your voice be heard by taking the survey here.
The survey’s findings will help elected officials to develop economic recovery policies and programs to better serve Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. ACC will work with National ACE to share the results with legislators and policymakers.
Your input is critical. The survey will take you about 10 minutes and your responses will be anonymous and confidential. You can take the survey anytime until March 24, 2022.
Upon completing the survey, you could win a roundtrip flight with Southwest Airlines.

Nine years ago, H-E-B introduced an exciting program called H-E-B “Quest for Texas Best,” which is an opportunity for local, small, women and minority food, beverage and non-food suppliers to have their items considered for our shelves. The top finalists have a chance to win substantial prize money for finishing in the top four. I’m happy to say that many of the entrants’, finalists’ and winners’ products have been placed on H-E-B shelves to date and are building sales momentum.
Since launching the contest in 2014, H-E-B has reviewed more than 4,500 samples of the most creative and mouthwatering Texas-made food and beverages, deemed more than 750 unique products worthy of shelf placement and awarded nearly $1 million in prize money, marketing, supplemental support, and mentoring.
The open solicitation for product ideas will start on February 23rd through April 7th, 2022 at 4:59:59 p.m.
Interested food and beverage suppliers will have a chance to use our online portal to submit their exciting products and creative ideas. Like the past eight years, H-E-B Business Development Managers will cull through the entries. The top finalists will present to a panel of judges, who will determine the Grand prize, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners, which is slated for the August timeframe.
We are asking you to share this opportunity with your members and stakeholders on your website and in your marketing venues.
