Entrepreneurship: when passion, planning, and opportunity collide.

It’s the investor who envisions the potential in a budding real estate market, or a gastronome competing for a local title in Food Truck Wars. It’s the florist who pours life savings into a quaint corner shop, and a gearhead who flips that enthusiast hobby into a full-time gig. Far more than the brick and mortar that define a physical address, small businesses are pillars of their communities and “creative people with passion that can change the world for the better,’’ as the late Steve Jobs told the Wall Street Journal Europe in April 1998.

The latest statistics published by the US Small Business Administration (SBA) state there are 29.6 million small businesses, which account for 99.9 percent of all firms, 47.8 percent of private sector employees, and 61.8 percent of net new jobs in the United States. According to the 2015 County Business Patterns, 5,265,682 of the 5,900,731 firms on record have fewer than 20 employees with an average of just a four-person team keeping the operation running smoothly.

With a decades-long heritage of family entrepreneurship, Zalutko Business Services is proud to support its local community through the Ormond Beach Chamber of Commerce, regional industry events, fundraising efforts, and personal charitable causes.
