On June 25, American Express and Main Street America announced the grant recipients for the Backing Small Businesses Grant Program.


Sandpiper Landing Inn, based in Branson, was among the winners.

Deana Acton, one of the owners of Sandpiper Landing Inn, praised the Small Business Enhancement Grant through American Express and Main Street America for providing this funding opportunity to small businesses. We are excited to have been selected as a recipient and will utilize the grant for ongoing room renovations with materials purchased from a locally owned small business, Sho-Me Flooring. The Actons are celebrating their 50th anniversary at Sandpiper Landing Inn this year and look forward to continuing to serve our visitors in the historic Downtown Branson area.
