Brighton Main Streets has been an invaluable resource to me as a new business owner in the Brighton community.
While I was crazy enough to take over ownership of a long-standing Brighton cafe in the midst of very uncertain economic times, it was such a gift to know I could reach out any time to ask for business resources, networking, or simply advice. BMS has been more than willing to share their knowledge and help me build relationships that have given me a much needed sense of connectedness in the neighborhood. They have made the privilege of business ownership well worth the risk knowing that there are people committed to helping businesses thrive! - Caitly Ryan Cafenation
It is very tough to run a small business by oneself, especially a restaurant. I faced so many challenges, but have received so much help from Brighton Main street!!
Their support and help made me feel secure!! This feeling of security didn't come easily, but through the hard work of Brighton Main Streets’ staff and Board of Directors. They showed me they care, and that they are all willing to help. For this, I am very thankful and grateful I have chosen Brighton to start my first little business." - Elizabeth, Little Pecan Bistro

The Brighton Sounds summer series introduced me to Brighton Main Streets
and got me excited to volunteer in my community. From these summer concerts to community clean-ups, Brighton Main Streets has helped me plant roots in Brighton and connect with my neighbors and local businesses. I'm proud to volunteer with Brighton Main Streets to keep our neighborhood strong, connected, and working. - Sarah, Brighton Main Streets volunteer
Brighton Main Streets through its Executive Director Aidan McDonough is a strong supporter, promoter, and advocate of our small businesses in Brighton.
These small businesses are a backbone of a vibrant and healthy neighborhood. During the early months of the COVID-19 Pandemic, Charlesview, Inc. committed to provide support for employees of small businesses who would not be eligible for Federal and State unemployment benefits. We knew we could count on Brighton Main Streets to identify those most in need of financial support and most importantly, get the funds to them. We value our partnership with Brighton Main Streets and will continue to support their important work in the Brighton Community. - Jo-Ann Barbour, Executive Director of Charlesview Inc.
Brighton Main Streets is an unbelievable, community focused organization that I second to none. Aidan and the team at BMS have been incredibly helpful and kind during this time. I simply can't express my gratitude for what they do for Brighton. - Chris, Recipient of Brighton Main Streets Workers’ Relief Fund
Brighton Main Streets has had the very best,
brilliant & caring Executive Directors, who are always looking to help small businesses to survive and find tools and connections to flourish. I have owned my business for the past 30 years and since BMS has started, they have always been there for my business. Thank you, Brighton Main Streets! Amanda Rojas, owner of Amanda's Flowers.
Brighton Main Streets was a big help with us working to get an outdoor patio in front of our business last summer. We were so pleased by the results of trying outdoor dining last summer, that we decided to expand our outdoor dining patio this year! When we opened, BMS right away was nothing but supportive of our family run business, even holding volunteer events here before the pandemic. Any time I need help with my business, Aidan and Brighton Main Streets have always provided a helping hand. - George, owner of The Circle Tavern & Pizza
