Ann Arbor-based Domino's has renewed its title sponsorship for "Small Talk with Mark S. Lee" beginning in January, 2016. "Small Talk" is only broadcast in the Detroit region and the state of Michigan focused on small business development and entrepreneurship. Lee invites business experts and entrepreneurs to offer tips on having a successful, sustainable business while navigating business challenges which can slow growth. Additionally, resources for entrepreneurs are identified and discussed.

With approximately 32,000, the 2010 U.S. Census data reports Detroit is the fourth largest city in the country for minority-owned businesses and with approximately 242,000 women-owned businesses, Michigan is the ninth largest in the nation.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, small firms accounted for approximately 63% of net new jobs created between 1993 and mid-2013. Since the end of the 2008 recession, small businesses accounted for 60 percent of the net new jobs created across the country.

"Small businesses are job creators and fueling economic growth. With its franchise network, Domino's understands the importance of entrepreneurs and their impact on the economy," says Mark. S. Lee, a Detroit native and President & CEO of the LEE Group, LLC. "We appreciate Domino's support because without it, we would not have the platform to offer business leaders and entrepreneurs the opportunity to share their stories focused on opportunity and growth."

"Franchising and supporting entrepreneurs is in the history and DNA of Domino's. Mark's program speaks directly to those two aspects of American business. We're proud to continue our relationship with this program," said Tim McIntyre, vice president of communication for Domino's Pizza.
