Things I value in a business in descending order:

Union shop
“Employee-owned” (this is nebulous)
Open a long time
Family business
Veteran owned
“A portion of our sales go to x cause”


Family business just means your dad knows more about whatever it is that you do than you do

Some of the worst companies on earth have been around the longest, but I don’t mind a place that does one thing well continuing to do that thing
