What is this website about?
Brent locals created this Small Business Active Directory website. Our free system connects people with their favourite local business (restaurants, plumbers, electricians, dentists…) so that, in the case of restaurants, they can enjoy tasty food at home. Use it to search for and find restaurants that deliver to your area or offer takeaway, and when you find what you were looking for, connect to make your order.
IT IS YOUR CUSTOM THAT KEEPS SMALL BUSINESSES ACTIVE AND OPEN
In March 2020, numerous businesses were forced to close their doors due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many did so with no clue about exactly when they would be able to reopen. As time passes and this pandemic subsides, and the economy rises from its deep slumber, restaurants are among the first kind of business that can now reopen. This means that your favourite dishes are still just one click away on Small Business Active.
You may be stuck indoors, but you aren’t stuck eating the same thing every day. If you’re concerned about visiting an actual restaurant, know that many have spent small fortunes adapting their premises in anticipation of you returning.
Small Business Active is here with you through these difficult times, putting all the best food delivery options in one place, so you can enjoy the food you love, without leaving your home if you prefer.
Our focus is helping our local small businesses through these unprecedentedly tricky times, by giving those that are ready to go, an opportunity to let us all know.
Local small businesses now active, are expected to stick to the recommended health guidelines in the preparation of your food. Those regulations got put in place to protect us all, our friends, our families, and communities.
Creating a better world takes commitment from all of us, and we hope to make your world just a little better by helping you get the food you love, delivered to your door. And of course, we intend to make it easy for you to know which of your favourite small businesses are active again.
The economy came to an absolute standstill. We are all affected by it. We all need businesses to thrive. Whether or not we realise it, all our futures depend on it. Also, our local traders rely on us. Supporting them supports ourselves too.
Don’t forget to check back regularly as we add different kinds of businesses to the directory.
But what exactly is a Business Directory?
This community resource website is an online list or catalogue of websites. It’s an online directory on the Internet. Historically, directories have typically listed entries about people or businesses, including their contact information; such directories are still in use today.
A web directory or what we like to call a community resource website includes entries about sites, including links to those websites, organised into categories and subcategories.
Additional to a link, there may be the title of the website, plus a description of its contents. In most web directories, the entries are about entire websites, rather than individual pages within them (called “deep links”). Sites are often limited to inclusion in only a few categories.
There are two ways to find information on the Web: by searching or by browsing. Web directories provide links in a structured list to make browsing easier and organised.
Many web directories combine searching and browsing by providing a search engine to search the list. Unlike search engines, which base results on a database of entries gathered automatically by web-crawler, most web directories are built manually by human editors. Many web directories allow site owners to submit their site for inclusion into the directory. Editors typically review submissions for appropriateness and accuracy.
Web directories may be general in scope or limited to particular subjects or fields. Entries may be listed for free, or by paid submission (meaning the site owner must pay to have his or her website listed).
Who is this Business Directory for?
First off, this website is for people searching for businesses in their current area.
Why use this site over the general Internet?
Some places share the same name as others. Therefore searches that seem local often produce results that pertain to totally different countries.
This helps with avoiding that and thus saves you time. Over time we will make our searches more and more relevant for you.
If you have a local business, then this site is for you. It may be that you know a friend or family member that owns a business, established or otherwise. It is for them too.
If you’re looking for specific kinds of business by category or location, then this site is for you too.
