Indiana Originals was started on a simple premise: support local businesses and local nonprofits faster and easier.
What started out as a simple business directory is now a community of consumers and business owners working together to create healthier, stronger communities and more jobs in Indiana by encouraging and facilitating greater patronage of independent, Indiana-based businesses. Indiana Originals helps consumers support local businesses faster and easier and helps Indiana business owners find the resources they need to be successful. Every business featured on IndianaOriginals.com has been approved for membership. That means the business is Indiana-owned and operated, headquartered here, and not part of an out-of-state franchise. When you spend your money with these Indiana Originals, three to five times more stays in our local economy as compared to when you spend your money at a national chain.
