Local Business Get a Boost from the State Fair

Business owners reap the benefits of one of the biggest annual events in North Carolina

October 22, 2010 // Franchising.com // The smell of deep fried foods, farms and fun are winding down across central North Carolina as the 2010 State Fair begins to draw to a close. As usual, the Fair has brought in thousands of tourists, and their wallets, from across the state and beyond. The State Fair is big business, and its effects are felt by small business owners well beyond the Fairgrounds – and even beyond the Triangle.

UNITS Portable Storage of North Carolina is a self-storage company based out of Liberty, N.C., serving Greensboro, the Sandhills, the Triangle and then some. The company is owned and operated by Sabrah Hardin. She is renting out five of her portable, weather-proof storage units to the Fair this year, which will be used to house equipment, machines, etc., and will be on site for several weeks – helping the event staff with everything from setup on through the cleanup effort.

"The Fair is a huge event that offers a great chance for exposure with thousands of people all in one place," said Hardin. "I've been working with the Fair for several years now, and for local business owners like me, we look forward to this time of October each year – maybe for a slightly different reason than most other North Carolinians."

Working with the Fair has been a proven success for Hardin and her UNITS business. Whether it's increased foot traffic or a contract working with the event itself, the State Fair is an annual boon for many small business owners and entrepreneurs across the central part of the state.
