Business Diversity Collection

Framingham is a place where people and businesses thrive, a city filled with promise and opportunity. We have an opportunity to strengthen and support Framingham businesses which are owned by people from different social and ethnic backgrounds and of different genders and sexual orientations. This collection highlights these businesses which are strengthening the social fabric of Framingham’s diverse population and gives residents an easy way to find businesses to support.

This collection of diverse businesses in Framingham is by no means complete. As we strive to be an ever-growing resource for the community, we encourage existing collection businesses to request a correction by emailing the Framingham EDIC.
