How does a local business or restaurant get featured in ‘Community Impact Newspaper?’


You have probably noticed by now that Community Impact Newspaper is big on supporting local business. One of the ways we do this is through our monthly business and dining features.

Some readers have inquired as to how we choose the businesses we profile. There are only a few requirements to qualify for a profile in our paper: The business must have been open for at least one year, it must be local to Richardson and it must have a brick-and-mortar location.

Because there are so many local businesses that meet these requirements, the next thing we look for is an interesting backstory or timely hook. For example, in April we chose to feature Nick’s Sports Cards & Memorabilia because it recently moved into a larger space and is coming up on its 30-year anniversary.

We are always open to suggestions for businesses we should feature. Please feel free to send ideas to
