Dr. Jude Alcide, owner of Alcide Chiropractic is one of the only black chiropractors in Gainesville. The businesses celebrated its one-year anniversary Thursday with family, friends and the Chamber of Commerce.

While they were celebrating, the city should be proud too, while minority-owned businesses are on the rise in the area.

Torrie Austin with the Equal Opportunities Office for City of Gainesville says minority-owned businesses have grown from less than 20 to nearly 300 in just four years. The city has created a number of policies to help expand small, women and minority-owned businesses.

Austin is encouraging all businesses to get registered with the city to reap all the benefits Gainesville has to offer.
