Sparta Town Square Award

Sparta Town Square is an award-winning, proven approach to enabling new businesses to develop their ideas in a low-risk environment. The purpose of the program is to provide affordable, turnkey locations for entrepreneurs to launch retail businesses and to bridge the gap between capital-strapped start-ups and empty storefronts. It's an opportunity to market those ideas in downtown Sparta, where successful tenants have the opportunity to grow capital or into a brick-and-mortar location.

The Sparta Town Square Retail Incubator project was awarded the Best Economic Development Project in the State of Michigan under $1 Million Dollars by the Michigan Downtown Association in 2021! The project is headed by the Sparta Downtown Development Authority in partnership with Baker Investments LLC.

A new tenant is making plans to open the 4th retail space during spring 2022, and we will welcome back Ronnie Mack's Hot Box Hash House during springtime, too. Until then, Dottie's Dog Bowl featuring gourmet and specialty pet food products and Sweets 4 Days with decadent cookies, candies, cupcakes, and more are open for business now!

Do you have a small business idea that you're ready to test out in a retail space? The Shipping Containers at Sparta Town Square are retail incubators, allowing small business entrepreneurs an opportunity to test the market! Contact for more info!
