About Us

We are volunteers committed to helping our local businesses at a time of unprecedented turmoil. We are asking YOU to join us in making a positive difference during the global pandemic.

New Rochelle United For Business is a group of residents who are inspired to action by so many in our medical and healthcare industry, in our companies, and in our local government. They are responding to risk and fear with courage and smart action. We are inspired by our neighbors who are creating ways to help each other every day.

But another area at risk is our local economy. Thousands of people who work in New Rochelle are in financial peril. Locally-owned small businesses need help ASAP.  

My name is Brad Brown and I live in New Rochelle, New York. I have a background of building financial and risk management software for top-tier banks for two decades. With the help of others, I founded this organization to unleash the purchasing power of our city residents by reducing uncertainty and inefficiency. Supporting local businesses in these challenging times requires  a custom approach and special attention to the current concerns of customers and supporters.

As part of the re-opening, we help people find and get deals and discounts in New Rochelle to encourage spending in our city.  

We also help people buy gift cards from local businesses. These electronic gift cards can be for personal use or be given to others. 

We also make it easy for visitors to volunteer their time to writing online reviews about their favorite businesses. See the boxes to the right and below.

We are currently operating as a Limited Liability Company but plan to form a 501c3 non-profit.


As the re-opening phases progress, businesses are offering great deals to encourage customers to return to their stores physically and virtually. Our deals page pulls many of these deals into one place to allow visitors to easily find and take advantage of these offers. Deals are a double win: you get great savings AND you help your local businesses recover from the pandemic. Be sure to return frequently to see new deals or sign up for our deal alerts

gift card sales

Many businesses and organizations had the good idea of selling gift cards during the pandemic. See our gift card section for a listing of local gift cards.

social media support

In addition to financial support, concerned residents want to volunteer their time to help. We lay out a clear efficient process to improve the online presence of local businesses. Online reviews, ‘likes’, and other customer-driven promotional activities will make a tangible difference to many businesses that are having to rapidly develop online revenue channels. Anyone can do these steps for any business. This site shows you how and we make the process efficient.
