The Downriver and Detroit Business Association known as DADBA was created in November 2005 by Laura Fennell with the sole purpose to help local businesses interact and support one another…. People do business with those that they know, like and trust! DADBA was started with a handful of business owners that believed in our concept and grew from there, mostly on their recommendations to other local companies to join us. Today we stand 400+ members strong and grow based on the recommendations from our members.
DADBA also reaches out to the general community in an effort to continue supporting LOCAL BUSINESSES. We offer a sense of community and camaraderie – our members are not only fellow business owner but your neighbors! They go out of their way to support and take care of each other. Supporting local businesses has been the foundation of DADBA from the start and our membership base really does take that seriously. Supporting our local business community and spending our money with them will help to create more jobs within the community. SHOP LOCAL!!
