Accessible Artisan

Products made by small businesses reach a new market by enhancing availability

Implications - Though the majority of North American consumers are interested in buying from small businesses, the lack of accessibility (and therefore, convenience) can be a barrier. Small businesses are responding by innovating around the delivery of their products. This opens artisan products up to an entirely new market, capitalizing on the desire to buy consciously.
