Alumni-Owned Business Guide

Supporting a fellow Bee has never been easier!

Let's celebrate and support Ambrosian-owned businesses. What started as a holiday gift guide in 2020 has evolved into a year-round resource where you can find Bee Businesses! 

Whether you're looking for a great gift or want to support fellow Bees in your hometown or while traveling, this is a great place to start. 

Want to be featured? Complete this form and we'll add you to our list and send a Bee decal to feature at your business. 

Note: List organized alphabetically by state abbreviation, followed by city, then alum's last name. Those with an * offer special deals to alumni. Scroll down to view the details.
