Creating prosperity through empowerment
Más Club opened on August 6, 2009, with an expanded assortment of products to better serve the needs of the Hispanic community and small businesses in the Houston area.
Advancing supplier diversity through education and advocacy
The Supplier Diversity program aims to expand and advance our current pool of more than 3,000 diverse suppliers through education and mentoring. Our goal is to support capacity building for minority-and-women-owned businesses. We aspire to create prosperity through empowerment.
As part of our efforts to stay connected to the best and brightest of diverse suppliers, we partner with the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC), Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and several other organizations across the country to identify potential suppliers.
Our programs and initiatives include hosting supplier fairs, sponsoring multiple national trade fairs/matchmaking opportunities and educating our merchants/buyers internally. We also leverage our size and scale to increase spend, and to develop and grow the next generation suppliers.
Since 2008, we have provided more than 20 scholarships to minority- and women-owned businesses for the Tuck Executive Program at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College.
The program is a highly regarded, intensive one-week entrepreneurial business course designed for high-performing minority and women business owners. The program prepares minority- and women-owned businesses for success.
