May is Asian-American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. We are so delighted to celebrate our merchants, and we’re proud to work with so many AAPI-owned small businesses.

It’s no secret that the pandemic has hit this community especially hard. More than half of New York City’s Asian-owned businesses suffered revenue losses of 75% or more in 2021, according to the Asian American Federation. In addition to business woes, last year’s drastic uptick in violence directed towards the AAPI community nationally has not abated.

The AAPI community has made far-ranging historical contributions to innovation and entrepreneurship to commerce. From memory cards to IVF to YouTube, it’s an impressive and diverse legacy. In the here and now, Clover’s many AAPI-owned businesses across the country shared their stories with us as part of our Meet the Merchant series.

To celebrate AAPI Heritage Month, we wanted to amplify the powerful AAPI voices we’ve published already so you can take another look. Remember to check back every Thursday for new merchant profiles on The Green.
