Company News: West Tenth Launches in San Antonio

West Tenth’s Latest Expansion Supports and Spotlights San Antonio Small Businesses

SAN ANTONIO, TX, USA, August 3, 2022 / -- West Tenth, the local home-based business marketplace, has officially expanded into San Antonio, Texas, marking the fifth city to be added to its platform. The expansion will allow San Antonians to discover and work with incredible micro-businesses being operated from homes within their local community. Because West Tenth is a dual-sided marketplace, shoppers can easily book local service providers and purchase products, while sellers can share their talents, grow their audience, build community, and generate revenue.

Upon launch, the platform already featured nearly 100 San Antonio businesses, ranging from Be Blessed Photography, founded by Jennifer Gipson who sought a new creative outlet after the passing of her children in 2018, to TX Fit Life, a personal training service founded by Leann Gutierrez, who empowers both clients' physique and mentality through body positivity and core strength. In addition, the platform boasts local favorites like Sisters’ Event Decor, Silly Little Yak Gluten Free Bakery, as well as home organizers, child sleep consultants, and personal stylists.

These founders are already feeling the impact of West Tenth’s support. “Seeing so many women come together to support each other is exactly what we need right now,” says Gutierrez. “Especially for small businesses like mine that are working so hard to grow, but are still not in the light.”

While nearly 89% of home-based businesses are women-owned,
